Depends, if you're under say 5'8"ish riding a lowered bike and/or have a high tolerance for wind noise and buffeting, you may be just fine, some people like that shield just fine.

If you're a bit taller, ride take long rides, want to save your hearing and be able to see clearly, make your passenger's ride a bit more pleasant sell it and get something that works better.

You can spend hours reading up on the possibilities and most will point you at the Madstad, although plenty will tell you others work fine. It all comes down to personal preference and tolerance.

Thanks for the feedback. Just trying to find the right fit for me. Style and function are a must!

Sometimes hard to do both, style is very subjective, function - not so much. Plenty are stylish.

When did HD offer a 15" in dark gun smoke? I liked my HD 12" but just didn't provide enough coverage as my riding habits have changed to longer rides. I was going to try the 14" but I wanted a tinted WS.

Is this out now?

I like the look can you give me feedback?

1) Does it provide good coverage for long rides?
2) Any buffering at higher speeds 70mph< ?
3) How tall are you and your inseam?
4) What seat do you ride with?
5) No helmet, 1/2, 3/4 or Fullface?
6) Do you have lowers or any other wind deflecting instruments on your bike.

THANKS!!
