Tall windshield users - do you look over or through?

> What do you prefer and why?

I prefer to see over.

If the windshield got fogged up and I was looking through it, it could
create problems.

I have a place along my route to work where the shield quickly and
completely fogs up. No rain. Not sure why this is. Anyhow, when that
happens I'm particularly glad I can see over it...

I rode a borrowed bike a few years back that had a +5 on it. Couldn't
see over it. Got into several hundred miles of rain and had to look
around or stand to see over the shield. Not fun.

My two cents.
