U will love it , especially if ur under bout 5 10. I am 5 5 n I still feel the wind but it's not that direct slap in the face wind. To me it helps on the radio also. I went to oriely auto parts n got some gloss black door edge trim for bottom edge it looks a lot better with it, some say go without but it looks like its unfinished.

I went from the stock windshield to the 11.5 tinted flare windshield and love it. I don't think you'll be disappointed but it's all about personal preferences. I'm also looking into the GADS system.

I like the 8" however I did have trouble hearing my radio at 70mph. I'm 5'6". Wind would go over me and smash my wife directly in the face. Haha. So I had to change. Put on a 12" KW. All is good now.

Djtman, I've got a KW 8" in black that's practically brand new. I had it on the bike for about 20 miles. It broke my heart to take it off because it's hands down the best looking RG shield out there, but at 6'2", it keeps trying to blow my head off.

I'd let it go for $130 shipped, if you're interested.

It's the best looking windshield our there hands down, but not the best for wind protection. I have a 10" freedom shield that works great for long runs, but if I want to ride with the cool factor, I use my 8" kW. Enjoy as much as I do with it
