I know it takes away from the Scrambler image, but, for me, the bike's a commuter and I wanted my ride to/from work to be a little more comfortable and less work than it needed to be. Because of this, I opted for a larger windscreen than the fly screens that are currently on the market.

I still need to fine tune the position to get the best wind protection with no buffeting, but I think I'm close.

So far, it's definitely helped and the wind's no longer hitting my chest, getting deflected into the underside of my helmet, making it feel like it was going to fly off.

Mission Accomplished? At this time, I believe so.

I think I'm on my way to converting the bike into a toned down adventure touring bike that allows me to touch the ground. (Being 5'6" sucks sometimes..)

That is a lot of windscreen for a Scrambler. I would not use it for every day riding, but I could see using it for a cross country trip or something.

Looks good & you said it does the job for you. I'm comparing the National Cycle options to the Puig. Thanks for posting your pics!

Thanks for the pics Kris! I am looking at this same windshield (Puig Touring II Windshield in Smoke) for my Scrambler FT. I do a lot of rural riding at speeds of 80-100kph. I ride with my BF and I find I become fatigued wayyyy before he does (he has an HD touring bike with lots of fairings/windshield to protect him from the wind). I'm hoping that this will help me to keep up with him, feel more secure on the bike, and extend my riding season into the cooler months.
