The W/S is approximately 12" tall & I'm 5'10". I'm not getting any buffeting cause at the top of the shield its curved....but I do get good air flow or wind in the face....and those damn june bugs (ouch)! Once the speed is up around 75 its still air....I'm in the pocket. I like looking over the windscreen, not through it. HD has a taller W/S but its not dark smoked like the shorter one. I think you'll need the taller W/S at 15" (light smoked).
Update this afternoon: I do not notice buffeting with a half helmet but notice it with a full face helmet!
