I have an Aeroflow like Tom described that I install for "winter" here in SoCal: on at Thanksgiving, off around the end of February. I haven't used it in the same conditions that he mentioned, but it is great for long rides in cold, fog and rain, but it is too hot for me the rest of the year. Given you are in Florida, I'd be cautious about this screen. I use a stock screen for the other season.

Just another opinion
