Here is a very old link from EP&F Moto Guzzi who also sells RE. Looks like a very tall windshield, (top of page). Question is, is it still available. If you like what you see, give em a call.

Thanks PaulF that looks like the one I have on the boke now and it is about 5 inches too short. There is a place in Tulsa that has made a replacement shield for my BMW that has a POP DREYER FAIRING, expensive but it can be done. They made it from a cardboard pattern that I gave them and the fit was almost perfect.

I read about a windshield add-on called the "Laminar Lip" that is supposed to redirect the airflow around stock windshields.  I think they glue on.  It might be an option for you. 

I am going to pick up a windshield today.  I'm 5'8"  so hopefully it will be tall enough to keep me out of the wind blast.
