Pretty neat, are the contents accessible with it on the bike?

Maybe try cranking down the fork preload a bit and/or raising the forks all the way up (flush with) the triple clamps...might help with the angle of wind deflection. I wasnt having issues, but cranking it down to 3.5 helped with the wind blast. Also, if you are wearing a helmet with a visor, that can make it seem much worse.

Can anyone speak to the passenger accommodations on the s10 vs the strom?

My passenger disiked the Strom. She loves the Tenere. She says she has more room and it is easier to get on and off. YMMV.

Here are some photos I took with the V Stream tall touring screen compared to the
stock and OEM touring screens. Yes it's tall and yes the buffeting is gone!
Took me a while to get used to the height. I've used it off road too and it didn't
shake around like I thought it might.

My wife mainly said she feels higher up on the Tenere. I do use an Airhawk
for the passenger too. Out of the Strom, FJR and Tenere she likes the Tenere best.
She like the Strom over the FJR.

Unfortunately no. But it will be easy to detach. I am going to use a cargo strap with a cambuckle on it.

I would be really leary about putting anything like a cargo strap and buckle anywhere near the wheel; or a box that close to the wheel.

It doesn't take much to spit it into the wheel and that's a bad day.

I'm 6' and the stock screen in either factory position felt like someone was playing paradiddles on my head with a pair of framing hammers. It was literally teeth-rattling.

Ended up with a CalSci shorty leaned back a little with the Madstad bracket. Problem solved - it wouldn't help you with reducing wind blast though - there's plenty of that with my configuration - but it's smooth air now.

Just as a suggestion. Otter box does make a product with an opening end lid.
It's not the same volume as what you have there, but access would be easier
and would also give a little room cushion. Could bolt to your bracket so
strap flopping would be a non issue as well.






Yes they make it in black. For well known reasons I went with yellow.

I'm 6'5" and I run a cal-sci x-large on a touratech adjustable bracket with the screen all of the way up and back, and the accessory wind deflectors and it works great. No buffeting at all at any speed. Now it is of course a barn door but the touratech bracket is pretty solid and it really doesn't shake much at all. I also have a madstad bracket but I can't say I'm a fan. It was impossible to get it to stay in place with the giant screen and it also holds the screen out from the bike considerably more than the touratech. This is my config.

Nobody has mentioned an MRA screen yet. Matched with a Waspworks adjuster the possibilities are endless. The flip on the MRA disrupts the blast and flips most of it over your head.

The adjuster allows the screen to be lowered for off road or hot weather.

I am nothing like your height (5' 10") but I also have a long torso, that of a man of about 6' - 6' 2".

I think its time to get an adjustment bracket for the windshield. I hate the stock setup.

Anyone have a used one of any make? Where is the Waspworks one listed, I don't see it on their site?
