On my 2012 FLTRU, 16" Cee Bailey TRSSC Euro measures 12.5" from the ledge.
I'm 6'2 and I see easily over the windshield. Coverage is close to my stock 16" shield. Just a little bit of air on my brow at highway speeds (60-70). Very nice.
I'm thinking I could have gotten away with a dark shield (instead of smoked). Why?
1. The leveled height of the shield is at the bottom of my chin (down from the stock being leveled at my mouth).
2. Because the contour of the shield distorts images when looking through it, I really don't look through it. For both of these reasons I could have gotten a dark shield.
Info on my bike: Stock air shocks, rear tire is a 200/55 - 17, front is a 120/70 - 21
Thanks again for all this great info.
