Default Cure for my double,triple, quad vision!!!

Had an 06RG and anytime over 70, I had many versions of vision - was a real pain. My best solution with it was to quit wearing my glasses and start using contacts when on a long trip. Helped but not the best solution.

Moving forward to an 11RG, I installed the madstad windshield. Took a few tries to get it adjusted but now I can ride up to 95 mph (closed course, professional driver, etc...) and not even have double vision.

Could not be happier. The positive side is that it raises the dirty air above my head but still allows a breeze to come through under the windshield.

As they say, it takes a little getting used to and it is more expensive than others but it just plain works. Got my money's worth - I'm happy.

Recommend Madstad for RG riders without reservation.

+1. Road 500 miles this past weekend. Buffeting is a thing of the past with the Madstad. I wish I had had the new robo brackets when I was fine tuning.
