Windshield and saddlebags recommendations?

I got a new Rebel 500 yesterday and I'm looking for a windshield and saddlebags.
Any recommendations?
Thanks!

I’ve got the puig windscreen and it’s perfect for me. See pic below and a link for the puig. There’s a good amount of options out there it all comes down to your personal preference though.

Look for the link under a member's name to go to their garage, assuming they've made it public.

I've got a Memphis Shades Big Shot windshield and Viking saddlebags. Both on removable brackets since I only want them on longer trips.

Yeah I found it in a couple of minutes, just didn't wan to come back and admit my dumbazzery, but then YOU had to point it out lolol.
S'all good.
That's the screen I want to try first ( but having trouble finding it outside the UK ), I want to start small and only go up if I need to, I like the seemingly robust mounting for the Rebel.
BTW: I'm 300lbs and had the Reb up to 80mph on level ground, I'm kind of impressed and it wasn't quite topped-out yet but the chest wind made me back off.

Hi tdeffler, how tall are you and how do you find that windshield? Iím looking for one of the Memphis shade sport shields, just trying to decide on which one. Need one for the highway driving, the wind is killing me, need something to push it up over my head. Iím 6í tall. Thanks.

Make sure that you get a windshield that is tall enough.

Is this tall enough to make the wind noise less for you? I'm 4 feet 11 inches a micro dude, LOL! I think this one will work well for me.
