Here's mine with the MRA Vario and the Madstad brackets...
Your pic "Stelvio Pass" is extremely cool. And I thought Colorado had awesome passes.
:great:

"Hey",,, I recognize that picture!!
Wasn't a good day... But it is a great shot.

Ride safe, Ted

Not much else I could do (except take pictures), while I was waiting for the helo...  :truce:

For lots of smooth airflow the Copperdawg and the MRA Vario cant be beat IMO.  I have both. High speed runs with the CD screen will almost require tucking in from the force of the wind hitting you.
Marc,
You can try out both when you come to get the bike!

Just mounted mine a few minutes ago (bought it over the winter).  Haven't put the plastic diamond on, yet.  I mounted the CopperDawg on the Madstad bracket.

The summer shield for my 2010 is an OEM shield from an '08. Works great. Got it free.

Absolutely!  Stock on my '08 is great all the way down in the summer.  All the way down, clean air on me, not so good all the way up - some turbulence.  Member here got me a second gen screen.  NOT so good all the way down, but great up for cooler weather. 

Before spending more $, try a leftover, cast aside early gen shield.  Might work, or cut it down for nothing.  I am 5'8" reasonably proportioned.

I want to see the CD deployed in the upper most position. I installed a Cee Bailey Mini Euro that CB custom made 2 inches shorter. So far I am very happy.

Reason I ask is I have radar and GPS that sits right behind the screen and is not in the way of hitting the screen from lock to lock. The CD looks to put it very close to interference?

My '08 came with a short OEM shield. I run this in warmer months at its lowest position. A tall CalSci is the cool/cold weather choice.

Its '12 stablemate has the re-curved OEM shield installed for cool weather and I bought another '08-'09 shield for use in warmer temps.

This approach has worked well in 7 years of ownership. Always have protection or breeze.
