Dave, I usually wear a full face helmet except in the dog days of summer when I sometimes wear a 3/4 Arai. For reference, I'm 5'7" with a 30" inseam. I do get some buffeting at highway speeds with the stock windshield. Not headbanging but still annoying. I moved to an LRS 19" recurve shield. That was an improvement but didn't eliminate the problem.

What did completely eliminate the buffeting for me is the new CVO Road King Windsplitter shield, which has an adjustable vent that directs air upward to counteract the air flowing downward from over the shield. Sounds weird but it really works, at least for someone my height. You can read about it here.
