I have owned both and at the end of the day I ended up selling them. The Cafe looks cool but worthless. Takes the air of your chest but puts it right in your face. The OEM short works a little better but still places the air right on your upper face. I ended up with a National Cycles touring shield that to be honest it doesn't look bad at all and works great.
Gitty Up & Go!
