John McGuiness uses them so that he can tuck in behind cleanly on high speed runs on the Isle of Man TT. These guys are getting trapped regularly at 190-200+ mph at Sulby Glenn

I got the Puig Z-Racing screen from motomummy. It's amazing how it creates a "pocket" for the rider. Have one on my '08 ZX-10 too. Best screen I've ever had and that includes both Zero Gravity & Lockhart.

Not sure what brand mine is but I have a tinted one on my 1000rr, I'm 6'4" and I can get out of the wind easily. I love it!

McGuiness is pretty large though.

Not really Gustav, I don't know if you've met him but I have. He seems smallish to me mind you he's not the runt of the litter (pack)

I must be mistaken but he looks kind of fat to me though.

Holy shit Junior, your a monster
actually that's an old pic of John M. Believe it or not the guy never used to train, but now does train regularly. I remember something that he a bet with his team / manager that he could loose a certain amount of weight before the season started

ya dude, I'm huge. My brother is even bigger. I can remember last time he moved my old man asking if we'd be ok to move the couch. I'm like "between us we're like 500+lbs and 12'11, I'm sure we'll manage."

they definitely help not only as far as wind protection but you'll have more visibility on you dash even when you're not tucked.
