Well it took about 1 month to get here. So I installed it, very easy job than took it for about a 20 mile test ride. It is worth every penny and the wait.Now I took the visor off my helmet don't need it no more, but may need them when it rains. Happy as a pig in mud.

Me, too. I'm also sloppin in that mud. Got the Givi one-piece (non-adjustable). Have been enjoying it for about two weeks. Fantastic. Like driving my former Miata with the top down. Only, more fun.
Was cautioned about riding the big screen in the rain. Rode through a rotten thundergusher the other day. No worse than looking through helmet visor. Great protection. Now the wind is at my back instead of on my chest. I will now be able to ride into colder temps with this kind of protection. Helmet noise reduced to almost nil. Instead of helmet noise, I can now hear the engine. May not need ear plugs.

I've always enjoyed my Givi "bigscreen". Especially the way it keeps the wind off. Immediately after I installed it though, the next ride was early morning and I encountered some light fog. Pulled over and took the time to wipe everything clear, waited a few minutes, then took off again with no further problem. My indoctrination in to riding in the rain was a full day on a Patriot Guard funeral mission and the whole thing was in heavy (and I do mean "heavy") thunderstorms. The windshield really performed it's blocking duties well and I never had any problem seeing through it. Maybe that was from the Lemon Pledge shine job too. Whatever... except for that brief fog experience it has been just fine.
