Anyone but me look through windscreen?

I have received some great recommendations regarding replacement screens. I had settled on the Aeroflow Hybrid. After talking to Aeroflow they suggested that if I like looking through the screen I should consider another model. The Hybrid is mainly designed to be looked over.

Does anyone look through(or do most look over), and if so, can anyone recommend a good replacement screen to look through. I am trying to reduce turbulence and buffeting for passenger.


Thanks

Pete

Usually look over, occasionally through.
I like to set my windshield up so that if the cars ahead of me are below my line of sight/top of the windshield, they are to close.

I only look through the screen when it's elevated in bad weather, or I need a bit of silence. I find the OEM screen clear and mostly distortion free. Still the original screen after four years and 23,000m.

The vstream has glare from the silver handlebars on the top two inches that drove me nuts. If your in the San Diego area I have several brands you can try. I ended up with the 22in cee baily on my GT and look over it.
The only bad buffeting I get is when I get stuck behind a pickup. I don't know why pickups are so bad.

I look through my screen when riding with my wife. I have an aeroflow GTL large screen despite being 5'8". I run it almost all the way up with my wife on board and mostly down when solo. With this screen and the wings and mini wings, she has a pretty clean pocket. We do adjust when visibility requires it, like when the sun if setting or glare at certain times, and heavy rain, but it works well most of the time.

I usually just look over the top of the windshield unless there is rain or traveling fast on the highway. Use the AeroFlow Large GT Screen for the GTL ( AeroFlow Corp. K1600GT AeroScreen on GTL ). It creates a pocket that blocks bugs & wind at higher speeds. Best,
