    I had a Puig Touring shield for a few days. The buffeting, and especially noise, was horrible. I tried mounting it various ways, in front and behind the speedo, low, high, nothing worked so I sold it. I like no shield, no buffeting and quiet. Your experience may be different.

    Thanks guys. Sentoria I didn't think that one was the Touring or is it? Vrider, are you very tall? Could that have been the problem?

    Is it the screen or how the helmet reacts to the new direction of airflow?

    I have the same style Puig on my Sport City and while I can hear the wind going over my head it has greatly reduced body strain when riding at 60 to 90 mph.

    MPG on the interstate has improved a bit since installing the screen and I am staying cleaner since I am not taking as many hits from the various winged creature that love hovering over our Florida roadways.

    5'10". I have the screen from the link Sentoria posted. I like it. I do still get a few bugs hitting my upper shoulders and helmet but the neck strain after a long (or higher speed) ride isn't there anymore. The screen you were asking about in the other thread seems to be the clear version of that screen with the lower part painted black.

    Thanks for all the input guys... I think I'll go with the dark Puig but jeez! $179 without shipping?
    Looks like I'm going to have to sell the cattle ranch.....

    Check out the Super Bike Toy Store in Stuart Florida. They got me the one for the Sport City which most sell for around $159 and it came to $100.65 delivered to my door. It cost me more because I live in Florida and they had to charge me the 7% sales tax.

    They can get just about any Puig screen even if they do not list it on their web site. You will have to either call them on the phone or send an email to inquire about the screen for the Mana. It does take Puig 4 to 8 weeks to get the screen to your door if it is not in stock at the US distributon center.
