    I just installed my givi airflow, and all I can say is WOW! Totally silent at 70mph. Slide it down and you get some air but its clean air, not noisy turbulent air. I can actually hear the engine. I don't think earplugs will even be necessary.

    I did not think ear plugs were necessary until I tried riding with them about 5yrs. ago. Would not ride without them now

    I've always worn earplugs on the highway. But I'm saying that's how quiet it is with the givi windshield. Really amazing. Al

    GIVI makes excellent screens. They are costly, but do the job. The first time I mounted one, I found myself going through the corners at 30+ mph over what I was used to and pissing myself. There was almost zero wind noise.
