Just received a new MRA Vario screen..!!
« on: July 09, 2018, 06:37:55 AM »
Hi all,
My new MRA vario screen has just arrived from Germany....will be interesting to see how it compares to the original in regards to wind buffeting etc... I'm 6' tall so not excessively tall or short..😁😁😁

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather....not screaming like the passengers in his car..!

Love mine. I am 5’11”, in the low setting pushes air on my face and in the high setting air over my head. Be interesting to see what it does for you.

Curious to read your thoughts on the screen smithy...
I'm 6'2" and have a cheapo extension on mine which seems to work... but might consider MRA vario in future?

What Auldy said....~1C this morning in Campbelltown, ~50km SW of Sydney. Well, I did brave the weather this morning, was a little crisp but nothing drastic.
The MRA Vario works well, I set it on the "mid" point for the little spoiler, although the buffeting is still there, it is "greatly reduced" at average speeds of ~80kmh compared to the standard screen.
So my conclusion is....it's well worth the money guys.😁😁
