Ordered a Madstad

I just placed an order with Madstad Engineering for one of there 11" Dark Smoke Windshields based on everything I've read about them here on Our Forum.
I'm hoping it works as described and that I'm finished trying different windshields.
I'll post a review as soon as it arrives and I install it.

I've got about 400 miles on mine, I can honestly say it's the best upgrade I have made to my bike.

Don't forget the tune.

I doubt you will regret the Madstad. Best windshield going for the RG. Post some pics when you get it installed....

As soon as I get it installed I will definitely post some pics.
I already received a email from Madstad Engineering letting me know that they received my order.

I also have joined the Madstad club. Using their site it seemed that a 13 would be at or near the top of the adjustment range. After a good half hour talk with Chris, I/we decided on a dark gray 14.5 I want as still a ride as possible yet look over the shield. He told me if I decide I want to go shorter or if the dark gray is too dark, exchange for a 13 inch and/or a lighter tint is no charge.

Well I just received a email from Patty at Madstad Engineering.
The order has been fulfilled and it should arrive Thursday.
Hope the weather holds out so I can take a ride as soon as I get it installed.
I'll keep you posted.

I put the 11" MadStad on my RGC - night and day better than ANY other windshield I tried. I would be shocked if you don't love it. I even like the look now. Road Glides without MadStad windshields look funny (wrong) to me!
