14.5 inch Madstad

Yesterday I got my 14.5 inch Madstad from Mark. He specialy cut the 14.5 at no extra charge and gave me a Military discount. This is my third shield as most have had and some more. I have to say I will not need or want any other shield. The Madstad is unbelieveable, get the slight breeze and no buffeting. My wife is now happy riding the RGU, before she refused and we took the old 94 Heritage out when she wanted to ride. Instructions were good, it took me about 45 minutes to install and based on setting that I seen others use on the forum I am happy with my first setup. Thanks Mark a GREAT product!!

14.5" seems like the perfect size. They should make that standard.

I agree I was not sure if I should get the 13 or 16 but once I talked with Mark and he told me he could do the 14.5 or any oter size I wanted. Thought the 16 would be to tall and the 13 to low even with the adjustment the Madstad provides. I really like the size I got.

Looks good on the bike. I spoke to Mark a few weeks ago, but still have not pulled the trigger. Can not decide on color , whether I want the dark or medium tint. And if I want to spend the money on ANOTHER shield.

I have a 13 inch dark i like it but at night i loose most of my low beam vision and when i am with the wife i raise it up and end up looking through it. I like the looks of yours and was thinking of ordering a 14.5 med tint. How do you find it for night riding and looking through during the day?

Although the Madstad for the Road Glide comes in EXTRA DARK or medium, it can be ordered in (NOT extra) dark. That's what I did, and I can't wait to get this thing.

Yeah i think that's the way to go. The extra dark looks good imo but at night i lost all the benefits of the daymakers i put on. I'm going to order a 14.5 medium tint i do to much highway and night riding not to pull the trigger on one. I'll keep the dark one for regular day ride short hops as i like it for that.

The 4 screw switch over from dark to medium when my wife comes will give me something to do instead of saying are you still not ready yet ten times while waiting for her. lol
