Fairing for passenger protection...

I am 5'11... Wife is 5'11+ and wide in the shoulders, chest and hips.... Riding a 13 fltru with stock seat.

Factory shield is just ok for me. A little buffeting and a lot of wind noise drowning out the stereo. I look at least 2" over the fairing sitting straight up and look through the fairing slumped or kicking back...

Wife is buffetted BADLY and wind noise is drowning out the stereo.

What Windshield will provide her the MOST air protection.

Looking for anyone who has a large passenger experience to draw from. Thanks.

I don't have one..... but check the Madstad threads, sounds like you've described the problems they're supposed to solve.

+1 on the Madstad. In addition to checking the threads on this forum, pull up their website, then phone them with questions and get their advice.

That is an easy one. Madstaad!

My wife swears by ours, not mention it made it seem like I installed an amp in the stereo!

Laminar lip

If the stock height is good for you then a laminar lip is an inexpensive option at $84. I use a Madstad but I can't use a stock windshield since I'm a short stack. Read their information the theory is the same as the Madstad on redirecting airflow.

Anything close to a Madstadt?

I am sorry guys the Madstadt looks just kill me! LOL I have loved the shark for that nose and windshield since first seeing one in the early 80's... The Madstadt may cure cancer but man oh man.... I am having a heck of a time getting over the looks.

It's funny. I am a function over form kind of guy everywhere but my bikes. My bikes are the only things I own that ave grace!
