I tried a small plexi windshield after removing the plastic 'number plate' type fairing on my R100GS. While it looked good, and did offer better chest protection, it funneled a stream of turbulant air right into my face - very noisy! I have opted for a slightly larger 18 inch windscreen on my R80G/S and have just returned from the baja quite happy. It is made by slipstreamer, I believe and is sized between the smaller cruiser type shields and the larger ones that widen substantially to protect the hands. I found it pushed the air up over my head, but I was still able to see over the top comfortable (I am short). It also removed easily for off road section which was quite handy. Just my thoughts..... I can find the model if you are interested.
It is a 'Sport shield' by Slipstreamer. Costs roughly $130 Canadian. I saw it in several accessory cataloges, and on the net.
