So???? Quit reading windshield threads if they offend you.

Of course, I'm biased myself. I like pics of the different choices out there and 13HDGLIDE posted some GOOD ones... not bad ones.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!

Have you run other windshields to compare this one to. Also, how tall are you? I'm 6'4" and just put on a 12' dark tint Mako (also have the HD wind deflectors) and although initially I thought this would be all I needed I probably should have gone 1-2" taller.

Welcome to the Forum !

It looks good, I like the little bit concave that it looks and how it follows the fairing.

Give the manufacturers specs (Freedom Shield 12") and then also measure it from the lip on the speedo/ tach vertical to the top for a real life measurement. (see picture on the left measuring from the speedo / tach housing not the way the Freedom site is measuring the picture on the right)


An example is I run a Cee bailey TRSSC 16" shield but it is only 11.5" tall above the speedo/tach. Every manufacturer is a little different in the way they measure their shields.

I didn't take this post as being critical. Valid points. I have been accused of making bad posts while my intent was anything but. JMO

Actually, me too. That's why I put all those smilie things in mine - just giving Garemlin a little ribbing about the way it sounded. Besides, it's fun to poke at each other once in a while.

Um WTF did I miss here??? What are you getting your panties in a bunch about??? I simply asked you how it compared to other RG shields. And that so many manufacturers are getting into the RG windshield game they are all starting to look the same. What exactly is it that you and others seem to think I was offended by??? I am obviously missing something.
