Just got the Special Edition V Stream put on my wing. What a difference, I am impressed. Looks nice and very functional for wind management.
It is not an oversize shield. I'm 6' 1" and it works great for me.

I like looking over the shield, but with the stock there was a lot of buffeting in that position. With the V Stream the air coming over the shield is smoother. I guess that is the best way to describe it. I cannot say it totally eliminates the buffeting, but it sure is a lot better than what I was getting from the stock shield.
I ran a Tulsa once for about a year and the only thing I got tired of was hitting my helmet on it when getting off the bike. Although, a friend had an accident while a Tulsa was installed and that thing broke (shattered) into huge triangle surgical knife edged pieces!!I always used the X-Tall Tulsa's with vent.
The only thing I don't like about the Tulsa is that the rain comes over the top and on to my lap.
2 months ago I ordered a V stream with vent.
I put it on and set it high like my Tulsa.
The vent was in my line of vision.
We took it for a ride and my wife and I agreed that we got more wind from it.
I took it off and sent it back for a refund.
To late in our riding season now so next year I'm going to try the X-Tall F4 with vent.
I'm 6'6" myself and the stock shield works very well. I do have it all the way up, but that is not a problem. :shrug:
