Thanks for a great product. Installation was straight forward,
and the tall version for the '02 BMW GS is just right at 6'2".
Feels like just enough air movement behind the screen when hot
weather hits, but the pressure from the previous wind blast is
gone from my chest and shoulders, along with the thundering
buffeting that came with the stock screen. I can actually hear
the machine run now at 75 mph. Makes it all much more enjoyable.
Came up behind a semi and felt none of the previous side push
from the blast off of his grill as I went around him.
Had previously tried another after market product from another
California company, at half the cost, but it was a waste of
money. Resold it and purchased yours. Very satisfied. You folks
did it right.

To the Folks at Aeroflow,
I have been in the Aviation field for 13 going on 14 years now.
I’m a “Tin Basher” as my co-workers like to say and I have
installed many kits. From simple repair patches, to lopping off
the wing tips and installing winglets. Even a complete interior
from scratch for a Bombardier 604 business jet. Still having
flash backs on that one. I really wanted to let you know that,
of all the kits I’ve seen in my days, this is by far the best
most professional kit I’ve seen. Well packed, hardware in
individualized bags as per area of install, labels on heavy card
stock not plain paper. Kit list in which to check that all the
bits are here. Even the tape that held the foam in place seamed
to be the best possible chose. It did its job but was a breeze
to remove from the foam. All parts fit exactly. I love that the
brackets are pre drilled for lights.
Oh ya, the shield works great. J First trip was a forest service

I'd like to take this opportunity to let you know how happy I am
with your R1150GS half fairing.
I'm a tall guy at nearly 6'5", and finding a motorcycle I'm
comfortable on is a bit of a challenge. After crashing my BMW
1150RT, I wanted to get a lighter, more nimble bike, yet one
that was still big enough for me to be comfortable on. The
1150GS was my choice, and I liked all aspects of the bike,
except the tiny windscreen. After only 30 minutes or so of
riding, I'd have a horrible headache. Interstate trips were out
of the question, as I could barely hang on to the bike. I was
missing my RT, and beginning to think I'd made a horrible
mistake in buying a GS.
I read several testimonials from satisfied Aeroflow customers,
but the cost of the half fairing kept me away. I modified my
stock screen, tried a Give screen, and even a GS Adventure style
screen tailored to my height. While both the Givi and the
Adventure screen helped, I still suffered from some buffeting. I
discovered by accident that the turbulence was coming from my
LEGS! I thought to myself, "That's why the Aeroflow has those
big 'pods' on the side".
I ordered the half fairing, installed it, and went for a ride.
What a wonderful product! Not only did it cure the buffeting
problem, it made the ride many times quieter. I can actually
hear the bike running! Before, I couldn't ride to the end of my
street without earplugs in, now I reserve the plugs for long
rides at highway speeds (although the screen has make even high
The half fairing was money well spent. It's turned my GS into a
wonderful touring machine that is darn near as good as my RT.
You guys have given me exactly what I wanted. A lighter, more
nimble, less expensive RT...in GS skin!
Please feel free to add me to your long list of satisfied
customers. After researching aftermarket screens, I ordered an
Aeroflow for my 1150 GS. I installed the screen Tuesday in about
three hours and went for a test ride. All of my problems are
solved. Thank you very much.
I just wanted to send you a note to say how much I like my new
AeroFlow windscreen on my 2004 BMW R 1150 GS Adventure. I
installed it in about 1-1/2 hours and took it out for a test
ride into Chicago to do some errands. Instant "new bike." Much
less buffeting and wind noise. The next four days were 10 hour
days in the saddle on a trip to Wisconsin and Minnesota. The
shield performed beautifully and I look forward to a lifetime of
riding behind it in comfort.
Hello from Paris, France.
One year ago, I bought an Aeroflow half fairing for my 1150 GS
from Calamender in UK. It has changed a good bike for me into a
nearly perfect one : no more buffeting and noise. I can drive
now long distances much more relaxed. This summer, I rode from
Paris to Romania and back and I was very happy to have the

Ben, I just read your article in the Sept. 02 Bike Magazine on
the BMW R1150 GS. I agree with you completely. I purchased my
2002 GS last September. By this Summer I had decided the GS was
gutless and bought a Suzuki GSX R1000 (what a bike!). My
brother-in-law, Tony started riding
with me since I have an extra bike and the wind battering above
55 mph actually gave him a headache. Earplugs and a full face
helmet helped but he couldn't keep up. I talked to a fellow
getting his GS serviced at the same time I had the bike in the
shop for an oil change, and he said he solved the problem with
an AeroFlow two piece upper windscreen and lower body portion
screen. I got one at aeroflowscreens.com for $409.95 and
installed it within an hour. Cruising at 95 mph is like sitting
in your Lazyboy chair watching TV. No Wind! Tony says that the
reason we had trouble with the bike was the wind that held us
back, I agree. The bike is now perfect, and we call it "the Hoss",
the GSX R1000 "the Boss". You should consider the handling you
had at the track and wonder how good it could be if you were not
being killed by the wind. Get in touch with AeroFlow and let me
know how it works. I was going to sell the BMW until I listened
to the rider in Baton Rouge, LA. Good Riding,

I wanted to let you know how well I think your product is
designed. After thousands of miles of being buffeted by the
turbulence behind the GS windscreen I was ready for a change.
Your product was installed quickly and after hitting 70 mph down
an entrance ramp an hour latter the performance of your product
proved to be more than I had expected. I road 360 miles that
morning in complete comfort. An added benefit is that your
product looks great and integrates better with the bike visually
than the OEM. Thanks for the great work.
I called around and also polled my Northwest GS web group and
asked about aftermarket windscreens. The consensus was that the
Aeroflow was the best screen available for my 1150 GS. I was
about to head out on a 3400 mile trip and so I ordered the
Aeroflow half fairing screen. The ordering process was efficient
and the screen arrived on the date promised. After ordering the
screen, I figured that I might as well install the Piaa lights
at the same time. Since I was going to remove the gas tank to
hook up the Piaa lights, I figured I might as well put in the
quick disconnects on the gas lines so that I could easily remove
the tank in the future – i.e., like when I needed to service or
replace the battery. Others had suggested just propping up the
tank but I am glad I took the extra time and effort to remove
it. It allowed me to mount the Piaa relay and stow the extra
The Aeroflow screen went on easily. The installation directions
were clear once you looked at them for a bit and the parts were
well labeled. I had a very good ‘out of the box’ experience with
the Aeroflow product. I am 6’ 2” and Aeroflow had suggested the
tall screen for me and I was worried that the edge of the tall
screen would be right in my main line of sight. To my relief and
satisfaction, the edge of the installed screen was in the
perfect position just below my line of sight.
The Piaa lights and the gas line quick disconnects took more
time to install. They took more time probably because I took my
time and was real cautious and tried my best to do a clean
install. There is that point of no return and full commitment
when you slice through your gas line….(:^o
Well, the effort and expense was well worthwhile. The Aeroflow
screen performance was excellent. Not just good, but excellent.
We rode 3450 miles though side winds, rain, hail, and a
snowstorm on I-70 that coated the entire screen with ¾ inch of
snow. (We have a photo) The Aeroflow screen performed well in
all circumstances as well as at triple digit speeds. It made the
ride a lot more fun by smoothing out the air for me. The screen
also has an attractive curve to it when viewed from the side.
The integrated mounting for the Piaa lights is well positioned.
The lights are tucked nicely under the snout on the screen frame
and not only great for conspicuity, but they really light up the
road at night.
I would certainly recommend the Aeroflow screen to any GS rider
that wants to get rid of the buffeting that comes with the stock

I promised you pictures of my 1150 with the Aeroflow
half-fairing on it. As you can see, I need to wash my bike. But
getting back to your screen, wow! What an improvement over the
Parabellum and stock BMW screen that comes on the bike.
When I last contacted you I was wondering how to attach PIAA
520's to the bike. After considerable thinking and
conversations, we decided to cut about 2"-3" off the bottom of
the screen. As you can see by the JPEG13 above it looks great up
close and also from a distance in 11 and 12. Anyway it was a
GREAT solution. I would recommend it to anyone. It has not
affected the screen protection or the strength at all.
The other shots, 15 and 17, are just great to have to see the
protection the screen offers and how it looks with 520's
mounted. Feel free to use these JPEG's on your site. Pictures
I just received my new windshield for my R1150GS and installed
it yesterday. Installation was as easy as you said - no
problems. Well that's not the best part. It works even better
than described or expected. I just had to put a quick 200 miles
on just to see if what I was feeling was not a fluke. No more
neck and shoulder pain, no more wind noise. I don't know what
you did but it really works.
I JUST GOT AN AEROFLOW WINDSCREEN FOR MY 1150 GS. I CAN TRULY
SAY THAT THIS IS THE BEST SCREEN YOU CAN PUT ON A GS. I JUST
REPLACED A PARABELLUM WITH THE AEROFLOW SCREEN AND THERE IS NO
COMPARISON. THE AEROFLOW MAKES THE BIKE ALMOST AS QUIET AS MY
R1100 RT. ANYONE WHO WANTS MORE INFO CAN CONTACT ME AT BROCKLER@AOL.COM
Got it. Victory installed it. I've ridden 1800 miles with it.
It's another Aeroflow HOME RUN! Paige, you're a helluvan
engineer. The small tabs at the bottom make a world of
difference on the turbulence. The height is perfect. Thanks for
all of your help in getting this to my new bike on time. Keep up
the excellent work!
This isn't an inquiry. I just want to say thanks for prompt
service and a great product. Installed the Aeroflow half fairing
on my 2000 BMW 1150GS, today - Christmas. Everything fit, went
together EXACTLY as the instructions said they would. Looks
great and works better! I am 6'5" with 33' inseam, your tall
shield took away all the buffeting. I just can't say enough
about the effectiveness of the your design. Thanks again and
please let me know when the AeroGards are available for the
As with all Aeroflow products I have purchased, I want to tell
you how satisfied I am with your latest product.
I received my R1150 GS half-fairing yesterday, installed it last
night (along with a set of PIAA lights, thanks to your ingenious
mount), and spent what free time I had today running up and down
the road. Your windscreen system on the new GS works great.
Thanks for making a good bike great.
PS.......it also makes the bike look better!
It did come today. I got home early enough to put in on and go
for a short ride. It is, in a word, GREAT!! An amazing change to
the bike. I was cruising a good 15mph faster than usual waiting
for the head banging turbulence to start. It stops the draft
coming up your helmet and all the random wind around the torso.
BMW should be required to provide this shield as factory
equipment for the GS. My GS is much more enjoyable to ride now,
so much that I'll probably sell my other bike. Viewed that way,
I figure I come out $3600 ahead on the deal!
Thanks again, I'm very pleased.
I want to thank you for the extraordinary customer service. I
only have 50 miles behind the screen, but so far I like it a
lot. I also want to thank you for introducing me to Page. He was
awesome and helped me install the shield. This is what riding
motorcycles is all about: meeting great new people...you guys
all fall into that category.
I will write Paige separately, but thank him again for me in the
I have several hundred miles on my Adventure with Aeroflow/tall
windshield. What I thought was the perfect motorcycle is now
even better. The difference is amazing. Now that I know how well
the Aeroflow performs, I would not ride without your equipment.
Hello to all,
Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say "WELL DONE".
Received my new R1150GS Half Fairing and installed on my
Adventurer in about an hour and a half with no problems. All the
pieces were included, what a nice surprise. Had a chance to take
the bike for a quick trip, major improvement. No more helmet
buffeting and way more protection. I am more than happy with the
product and wanted to relay my thanks to all of you.
Just installed my new screen on my 1150GS. I was concerned about
my ability to do the job, but it went without a hitch. I did
have to buy the torx bits, but I had the other tools in my BMW
case or in my home stuff. I just got back from the first ride
and the screen really improved the air flow. Much less wind
noise inside the helmet and the air hitting my body has been
moved out off my chest and upper arms.
Thanks for making such a super product.
I thought you might like these pics of your screen with the
clear/smoke combo on a black GS. I think it looks great and I
get a lot of compliments. Adding the AeroFlow is the single best
thing I've done to this bike! [Pictures]
I work for a large US government agency where I am the President
of their Motorcycle club, I am also President of the local BMW
club and work for Bob's BMW in my free time or at rallies. My
point is I get asked a lot why I have an Aeroflow on my 2000
R1150GS. I must guess I have had it for three years. I tell them
I did some research and yours seem to be what I wanted and
needed. I also add, to please check the FOR SALE: ads, an see
now many Aeroflow's are listed. A few people have gotten back to
me that they have ordered an Aeroflow based on my liking it and
that when they check the FOR SALE ads a few other brands are
listed some more than once and NO Aeroflow. My conclusion: If
users aren't reselling them they must be using them, because
they work, just like your ads
