Default New Freedom Shield Review

All this is considering I have only had this new 12" FS for 3 days so far I really like it , I do still have a small amount of buffeting but seems a lot cleaner than before I also have put the Harley wind deflectors on crash bar and that also helped , I really like the looks of the shield it's prolly gonna take a lot to get me to change it , I have been on a road king classic since 05 and all summer months I ride with no shield and arms in the air so this whole wind buffeting problem for everyone had me worried on my new bike but with this shield I prolly have less buffeting on this bike than I did on the king and I'm freakin diggin it so much it has made me really appreciate my bike . So with all that said I do believe that a 14" for me would prolly have even more coverage for me but I would rather keep the 12" because I like the looks and the fact I have more view over it and it really does a good job so to Freedom Shield I say NICE JOB and 2 thumbs up I'm very satisfied !!! I will post pics later this evening

We can see you!!!

So how does this shield compare to other shields??? If you have had others to compare it to that is. What makes it different??? Seems like everyone is getting into the RG windshield game now and they are all starting to bleed together.

don't keep your mouth shut!
diverse opinions and products help everyone in the long run. If you experience something good or bad share it, and don't be discouraged.
