it is definitely a personal taste.  I've tried a couple of screens and don't care for any of them but they do serve there purpose. the screen looks fine to me but I prefer the cheesy OEM bug screen. :821:

I feel your pain

I have the same screen and honestly I don't like it, so I will be changing it soon but I am not sure what I will replace it with

Any ideas from you?? I'd be interested to hear

I bought a Chinese BMW knock off screen on eBay years ago.  It was awful.  The thing was not rigid at all and flapped in the wind at speed, creating unstable turbulence and causing buffeting along the bottom of my helmet.  Bought a Wunderlich touring screen.  It doesn't flex at all and doesn't create the "punched in the throat" or noisy helmet issues.  Though admittedly I can't tell any different from the low profile stock screen and the Wunderlich at highway speeds even though it's certainly taller than the knock off piece.
