Puig Sport screen

This is the dark tint Puig Sport screen. I think it has the best look for the FZ, subtle and not overbearing.
How does it work? Very well, mostly.
I'm 5'10". My immediate impression was riding felt smoother up to about 60mph. My arms and lower torso were more relaxed in a zone of still air, while there was just a bit more air pressure at helmet level; not turbulent air, just more even pressure compared to chest level.
At higher speeds this effect is more pronounced. Arms and torso still feel more relaxed, while more air is directed at head level. For me, this combination feels more relaxing than no screen, so I'm happy. Amazing how such a small screen makes the FZ more aerodynamic. It smoothes out the ride at all speeds.
I'm going to put a few hundred miles more on this before deciding whether to try a bigger screen.
For near-legal speeds and shorter distances, the Puig Sport works for me.
I found this on eBay for $102.

Its probably the best screen for the bike. Doesn't look goofy, works well. No uneven airflow or buffering. No head wobble. I am 5'8 and feel the air only right at the top of my shoulders without leaning down. It may not be the best for someone who is 6 foot something

There is still a good amount of space between there. Its not really hindered.

I thought about that screen, but I went with the Givi. Wind hits my visor and up...I'm 5'10".

Paso...what is that on your seat?
