You're much taller than me at 5'-9-1/2, so this may not apply to you...
I don't like looking through a windshield. Especially if it's covered in raindrops, even more so in the rain at night. I always set mine so I can look over it.
High or low, I was getting enough turbulence from my C50 stock windshield that at higher speeds or riding into the wind, it would lift up my faceshield. On one long trip out West I actually had to tape it down.
So I had lowers installed, Memphis Shades, as close to the bottom of the windshield as I could. On the way back home, it was somewhat better, but the problem persisted. I then lowered the windshield as far as it would go and boosh!, that did the trick.
There is still a small bit of turbulence at the top of my head, but not enough to mind.
The thing is, windshields are tricky to get just right. Experimenting with different heights (and angles, on the ones that have adjustable angles) is the process.
Lowers are great, but even then, some adjusting was still necessary to get the right combination.
I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.
Pray, Hope, and Don't Worry.
