Screen + full face every time. Why? Mainly for the weather protection, this is England after all. :lol:

But also I've had prescription spectacles since I was 16 and the basic prescription is quite complicated, latterly made more so by additional age related issues, hence expensive. Apart from which, or as well as, I have had stones chucked up by trucks I'm following, one time it cracked the visor! :o And then there's always the occasional Kamikaze bumblebee or wasp.

Half Hemet with built in shield that covers to about my nose. I have a windshield but do not use it. The sidecar has a windshield.

My next helmet will be a full face helmet which is what I have always worn previously The noise with the one I currently wear is hard to take. I had a windshield on my Honda Magna and on the Ural. I've never been able to get used to the buffetting. As tiring as it is, I also like the way the wind feels.

Memphis Shades Malibu windshield on Ural wearing half, 3/4 or full face helmet with mc safety sunglasses. Windshield is for protection from wind and particles hitting your torso 8) and also, not to get tired after a long trip.

Goggles with my Brit Davida Porridge bowl, for general year round comfort, a jet style with fully adjustable flip shield. Hot weather a Asian Porridge Bowl Scooter helmet with flip shield.
Since I wear glasses - I purchased a couple of pairs of Titanium Safety bifocal Glasses, Have an indoor pair, & Outdoor with Transition Lenses - so I can open my face shield - at low speeds on hot days & still have eye protection.
WARNING: NOT FOR EVERONE - I KNOW - so don't try this yourself.

No screens. Arai XD4 full face without the visor / roost deflector. I like the look of it on, but with no screens it’s more functional without it.

I throw the sidecar screen on when the wife rides, but the rig handles much better without it.

I have a half helmet and goggles as well. I’ll use it occasionally, but I prefer my full face.

Why you didn't offer the option of wearing a helmet with goggles? In my opinion, the helmet is the best option. Windshield hesitates a little especially when it is not clean enough.

If I was doing freeway riding I'd have full face but 90% of the time I'm doing 25 MPH through town so brain bucket with goggles for me. I had the windshield on when I got the bike from MonkeysUncle but I didn't like it. Plus with the windshield on, the airflow was blowing my beard up in front of my eyes.

I do modular helmet with clear visor and internal sun shade. Bark busters are on my to-do list.
