Windshield question

Hey guys, I have an 010 Electra Glide. Its my fourth one in my life. I just love 'em, especially this one. My question is this: I replaced other shields with the HD low profile shield the one that is about 2 in, shorter than stock. Has anyone tried the Cee Baileys SST shield for the FLHT. I want one that will make the wind break just over my helmet and not have it tall enough that you have to look through it. I am, 6"1' with a 32 inseam. thanks..

I'm 5'11" with the stock 12" wind shield and I like the wind protection but don't want my helmut and glasses to start getting hit by the wind if I get one that's too short.

Any thoughts?
BTW i have an 09 EG Classic

I installed Cee Bailey's Super Step Contour on my FLHX Street Glide recently. I posted about it in the Recommended Products section. I am 6"2" tall and I was looking for the same thing; for the wind to break over my helmet and not to have to look through tthe screen. I used their measuring advice, had someone help me hold a straight edge straight out from about chin/mouth level and intersected that with a ruler measuring up from the base of my stock shorty wind screen. It measured 10 inches for me. Cee Bailey said to add three inches to whatever you measure so I ordered a 13" windscreen and it is a good fit. I see over it and the wind buffeting I used to experience is gone.
Hope this helps.
