No problem.  Perfect, I'm the same height.  So cool enough in the summer (all the way down I presume), and covers completely in the winter?

Cee Bailey apparently really has their act together. I've ridden behind 4 different shields on the C10, nothing else comes close to the Cee Bailey for lack of buffeting.
