    Finally saw one of those in person on the showroom floor at San Diego BMW MC this weekend. They wanted something like $550 installed ($321 alone for the screen!!). What did you pay?

    Looking forward to the MRA screen. I had their Vario Screen on my 1100GS, and it was absolutely fantastic, especially in the light that I'm 6'7".

    You may want to check out the SW motech. They protect more of the plastice and already have brace for attaching highway pegs.

    Hard to see I know but if you squint , you can see the pegs.

    I ended up going with the Touratech guards with the Givi highway pegs (gyped em on). Also went with the Powerbronze screen. Just put on TKC 80s today! wooooo hooooooooooooo. In desperate need of a skid plate though :(

    I can't find that windscreen that's on your bike in this picture. It's not on Powerbronze's website.

    The great state of confusion
    I have the same one on order from F800Depot without the attachment at the top....

    I tried the Skidmarx but it put my ears right in the tumble zone so noise was literally deafening... If I raised my butt up outta the seat about 2.5" it was perfect, but I can't keep that up for long :lol3 figured I needed either a couple inches shorter or taller. I want to keep my profile down, so I'm hoping that the
    MRA @ 2" - 3" taller than stock F800GS will be ideal (14" - 15" tall) vs. 18" of the SkidMarx...

    Have you tried it yet??? Need to order something soon (for F800gs) as I am heading out for a while. My barkbusters seem they are going to hit everything except something that is close to stock width.
