The reason I'm asking this question is that I have always rode sport bikes with your helmet in the clear. I'm new on my wing and as it is I'm looking over it on the lowest setting by about 2'' or 3''. The wind sometimes makes helmet noise as I wear a full face helmet. If I take the visor off it's quite. I have considered a tall shield but am not sure if looking through it would distort my view. My bike is a 86 GL1200 so I'm not sure if the models change things ether. Thanks. earthpig....
