I've heard that Thunderbird can be substituted for the 20/20 but then you have to dance in the sunlight.

Well that explains my PROBLEM.  Being from the country, I always used a pig's foot, a Chicken's neck, Pagan Pink (Ripple Red can be substituted but you need more of it) and neeked in a thunder storm.
When you look like a rude, crude, scum sucking cretin, people tend not to ask you stupid questions.

I'm not sure that MD 20/20 simply cannot be duplicated.  "Often immitated, never duplicated"

Folks,

1st post sans intro... I've been lurking, beat me up if you must... I have logged 3,200 mi on the new Blue "ALBA" Tiger in the last 6 weeks and have been experimenting with screens swapping out various configurations during my 80 mi commute.

OEM suspension settings, 5-10in, 185 lbs, 31in inseam, I slouch a bit while riding (sounds slightly like a personal ad eh?) :155:.

1. Stock screen = clean wind blast with excessive noise. Not a super bad thing with earplugs. Real useless in a downpour or headwind.

2. Givi screen = (Touratech handguards hit lower screen edges with about 1 in to go till turn stop) real good pro and good dbs untill about 60 mph. About there my head begins to get tossed about in all directions so unpredictably that the bike track is altered. Seriously long-ride discouraging.

3. Givi screen (post angry and impulsive Dremel Tool alteration) -2 inches = good pro and OK dbs until about 50 mph* See 60MPH results above...

4. Givi screen (post-post somewhat calmer Dremel Tool alteration) -4 inches = altered but cleanish wind blast (I think that the wider sides without the height to a greater degree effect the vortex swirling around the edges) very noisy more so than the stock screen.

5. Givi screen (with additional and affixed "duct taped" curved and contoured flexible plexiglass) +6 inches from stock standard = good pro, quieter ride, not bad wind pocket at speeds over 60 mph, troubled air resumes at 70 mph but not as bad as the Givi screen unaltered.

Please keep in mind that I have been swapping the stock screen in and out between Givi alterations.

I've just ordered the larger +9 Calsci screen. It seems to me that after my home-made mods and for my specs this should do the trick. I'm more interested in the comfort alterations than the "looks" alterations. My last bike was a Kawasaki ZZR1200 and the lack of comfort drove me not to ride.

So its a Tiger for me and so far I'm loving it :169:

Lot of hu ha for letting us know what your going to buy. Whatever floats your boat mate. That's what it's all about.
Why you could even take the car, that's got a good screen.

Good report on your efforts to reduce the problems of the obvious screw up of Triumph and the forward fairing/windscreen. I applaud you for your time and efforts to report some of the findings of the Givi screen. This will perhaps help others in their descision to purchase or not purchase a certain product.

Playin -- let us know how it works -- I've heard good things about this supplier, but, as always, individual products (especially screens, it seems) vary by owner --
Well tolerated, but not for everyone.

Put on the 9" shield tonite, shoei RF200 helmet. Rode up to 70 MPH, no ear plugs- quiet! Looks like this is the shield for me for touring, and a 7" cut down standard screen fo canyon blasts.  I'm 5'11" tall and see over this shield for down the road vision. :152:

I stopped in to see Mark today at CalSci and set up to ride on Monday.  Will start with the +9" screen.  Said he was pleasantly surprised at the intial sales of his screens for the Tiger.  Doing well with screens for the new Concours as well. 

He was constructing a 2' sub sandwich when I arrived for he and his sons lunch, split it 1/4s and fed me as well.  If you're so inclined you can play the piano in the back office while waiting for your screen!

Nice folk, I'm sure we'll figure out what's right for me.
