In addition to the Parabellum, Aeroflow and GIVI you've mentioned you should
also take a look at http://www.ceebaileys.com/bmw/1150rws.html .  Not quite
as cheap as the universal fit GIVI you're discussing, but quality is first
rate and mounting won't be an issue.  I'm having trouble getting on GIVI's
website this morning so I can't confirm, but I'd also be wary of the
universal fit windscreen.  These usually rely on either a traditional front
suspension or tubular bars to mount and your Roadster has neither.
