Question Taller Windscreen?

After 430 miles on my Panigale Tricolre it seems that I get a lot of bugs stuck on my visor from riding the back mountain twisties, which is really annoying to me. Its like the airflow from the stock screen pushes the bugs right into my face. I was planning on getting the DP taller windscreen and was wondering if anyone has it installed and what their thoughts were are on it.

I am thinking about getting it but since I have the comfort seat it has added more pressure to my wrists. The one thing that helps alleviate that is the wind on my chest. I am worried that if I get the tall windscreen it will eliminate that. Thoughts?

I saw one installed Friday night and it looked good. The tint on it however was really light. The rider said it made a huge difference with the wind at higher speeds.

Puig is supposed to come out with one real soon. I will be waiting for a darker tint one from Zero Gravity but am not sure when that will be.

Hmmm... That's a good question, not sure but now I'm curious about the comfort seat and it putting more weight on the wrists. Just got home from a quick ride and was thinking about getting the comfort seat myself.

I can't wait until I install the tinted screen just to clear up some of the sun glare on the instrument panel.

Saturday

I am getting my DP tall windscreen installed this coming Sat, along with every other piece of DP carbon made during my first service., I will post how it works along with some pics here so you guys can see, and hear my opinion.

Nest step is the wheels. I am up in the air on either BST carbon or the magnesium ones. I like the 5 spoke better and they only make the 7 spoke carbons for our bikes. I wonder if the gold 5 spoke magnesium ones would look good on the Tri? Thoughts?

One of the guys on here (from GB I believe) put the tri bodywork on his base, with gold wheels, it looked pretty good I thought.

I have the taller screen and the comfort seat the wind still takes off the presure from the wrists but then I am 6' 3" happy with both
