Snow melt and rainy season ahead. What have you found that works on R1200R to deal with the Rooster Tail?

Yeah, the windscreen is probably the next thing I have to deal with...So far? Obsessive washing. I just got the ilmberger rear hugger, but haven't installed it in my unheated shed yet. Fingers crossed it shouldn't hurt at least. Then I remember my windshield making windblast worse. . .
So that is the question...which style works better? GS style (kinda ugly) or the hugger? I'll ride in the rain if I have to and in mountains and canyons, always the dirt and rain mix from runoffs and flooded drains/ditches.A GS-style rear mudguard would really help... The bosses to mount it are already bored and tapped in the swingarm, so I hear. (I'm in So Cal, so don't see much wet stuff.)
I say, something ain't right with that boy!You're not the only one wondering - Rooster tails? I think they must be as rare as hen's teeth, even those who should know haven't seen any as well.

In Australia, rooster tails are the dirt thrown up by an off-road bike when spinning the rear wheel.In the US rooster tail is a common reference for the spray of water/grime coming up and outward off the rear tire, or the spray of dirt spinning a tire off-road, or even the spray of water from a speedboat.
Gear bags on the rear rack, brake light, ESA/suspension and battery compartment...and pillion rider. All seem vulnerable to excess water and roadcrap... that nasty, oily, grime that stains everything. I don't mind dirt and mud but that other stuff that leaves a black stripe up your back...prob not good for breathing either. Haha!So, for the OP, I guess the question is - what are you trying to keep clean?
I've been eyeing the mudsling, but again.... SoCal...
