You might be able to arrange a situation where the screen is a spoiler and you sit in the turbulance, which could be a bit less airy than standing in the breeze.

Just my guess, of course.
Might work JW, I'm not worried about messing up my hair these days, just something that was more comforable. It's also a subject that no ones mentioned as yet, but could benefit many.

I agree with you that shelter is worth having. Why do you want to have a low screen? Is it a southerner's styling thing?

Well yes and no.

I do like a low screen as it's sylish and means that there's no obsured view when things get rough.

However a large screen is only really usefull when you need that shelter, but a catch 22 happens and you don't really get the visibility.

I thought that someone on here would have experience of a happy compromise and might even a have an ingenious solution to the problem and like to share this.

I remember my Dad's first car, it had a large screw and handle on the dash which opened the bottom of the screen. Climate control...what more could you want?.

Yes we do have one of these on our 770 - works very well indeed, however it's a bit "built in"!
