Originally, I had the Slipstream Spitfire windshield, which is small and easy on/off, but it only blocked the wind off my body, and most of the time pushed it up into my face. Not something I enjoyed on longer highway rides. I changed to a Memphis Shades Fats, with quick release mounts, that I found on eBay for $50, and it's Ruby, so it matches my red bike. No more face/head buffet, but now sometimes my "little" Spirit 750 doesn't do well pushing strong headwinds (30+ mph) up mountain hills, and I have trouble keeping up to speed. Maybe with a slightly smaller windshield (Slim or other style instead of Fats, but bigger than the Spitfire), I might not have as much trouble. If you can get one with the "flip" on the top edge, that generally pushes the wind further up and over you, so something in between size with that would probably be perfect. You might not have the "slow down" trouble with that VT1100, though, and the Fats might work just fine for you.
