Default Windscreen Preferences?

What kind of windscreens do you guys prefer? I'm 6' tall, and i felt like my double bubble redirects the wind into my face. Does anyone else experience this? I also think i'm too tall to get my big head behind the screen for any kind of wind protection. I recently switched back to the stock screen because i felt like the wind hits me in the chest instead of in the face. Does anyone have any experience with the Sport Touring type of windscreens for f4is? I know zero gravity offers some, but i wanted to check around before picking one up.

with that said, anyone interested in my sportech double bubble?

I am also interested in the windscreen you have. Love to get rid of my ebay special crappy one.

A double bubble is designed to push wind over your head when it is down low, in a race stance. Pushing wind towards your upper chest / neck / face is an unfortunately down side of that.

Personally, it doesn't bother me. If it does (which only happens going pretty damn fast), I'm usually tucking anyway so whatever.

I have no experience with the sport touring windscreens, but I can say with pretty good confidence that you're not going to eliminate wind hitting you above the chest. Get a cruiser with a big windscreen if you want that

double bubble is the way to go, those sport touring screens look absolutely hideous on a sport bike

I'm 6'6, and I love my Zero Gravity Double Bubble.

If wind blowing into your face is bothering you, perhaps you should consider another type of transportation

With my stock screen on, it feels like the wind hits me in the upper chest. So far it seems nice cause it cool you down. The DB was high enough to get the wind deflecting into my helmet, so my head would be taking some mad turbulence. Maybe the zero gravity deflects a little higher than my sportech?
