Another satisfied Madstad customer

Got my 13" dark shield put on yesterday to replace my 13" windvest. The Madstad is well made and easy to install. Initially set the height 1/2" above where the windvest was and set the angle at 59 degrees. Took it for a test ride and what a difference! I expected to have to play with the settings some but haven't yet as I don't know how much better I can expect it to perform. It gets better looking after every ride.

I found a back road with no cages and just barely tightened the shield and adjust as I rode. Don't worry about height doing this , just angle.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

It's one of the single best improvements you can make to a Road Glide!

Might give that a try, what angle is yours set at?
