Cool Best windshield.......madstad!!!!!!!!!

After trying a half dozen claimed "windshields to cure the buffeting" and deciding it wasn't possible, i discovered the madstad by mark stadnyk in dade city, florida (www.madstad.com)

just search this forum and see the answer is 'unanimous,' madstad, and if you want the icing on the cake..........sancho wings.

Good question. There's very little information about windshields here. But I think one size fits all.

Welcome to the forum from Central Jersey, and get ready for a myriad of suggestions. Windshield choice depends on factors such as your height in the saddle and of course, aesthetics. Don't rush into it, you have all winter to investigate. Lots of past threads here, so good luck.

Hey, check it out...I am now a "Prospect" !!

Depends on what you like, the only windshield I didn't like was the OEM on the FLTRX, every other one I've had has worked just fine for me.

Welcome from F-Burg VA. As for the windshield I have had a few but found the best IMO it is the Madstad. I would never buy anything but for the RG

Had the same question but a lot of research in the Forum really helped. Ask yourself what do you want it to accomplish? Do you want to look through or over it? Do you want an acrylic or polycarbonate? Curved, recurved, yada yada yada . How much do you want to spend? That said plenty of positive reviews from many companies here. There is no one best windshield, just the one you find that fits your riding style.
