madstad

hey all. just thought id drop a line about my madstad 11inch. I just finished up a 7000km 8 day road trip. the madstad windshield is by far the best money spent on my 12 roadglide. performs exactly as advertised, looks fine, and just plain works. had lots of good responses to it along the way and lots of negative. tell the negative ones if you don't like the looks then don't look. enough said. great product and would buy another in a heartbeat.

Most are running at 58 degrees with top of shield at chin to nose height looking over the shield.

I change my settings all the time. Riding solo or at night I have my 14.5" at its lowest angle even with the fairing. Riding two up I have it all the way up and top of the shield angled forward away from the fairing, all the way. I am looking through which I do not mind and no buffeting. Nice even wind and comfy.

I own a Madstad. Because I wanted my bike to look sexy today, I put the stock toenail on and did 150 miles. The Madstad is going right back on! My ears are ringing and I even wore earplugs. Madstad isn't sexy, but man is it effective!

I had a few people comment on my Madstad in Laconia. They liked it!

The one comment I haven't seen about the Madstad is the excellent fuel economy it offer you.

Rode from north FL to central GA and back. I have the whole Fuel Moto engine set up. I got 44 mpg on two separate tanks. That is some 75+ mph and some back roads. Very impressive.

Oddly enough on a recent 8 day trip I had 3 riders stop and ask me about it because they liked the way it looked. Several ask about function and wind turbulence. I have nothing but good things to say about it.

I did a 200 mile run up on my RGU to Laconia bike week last weekend two-up with my Madstad at nose height. Did 46.8 miles to the gallon. Consider it was windy, I am happy with the numbers.
