Windvest 12"/14" on a 15 RoadGlide

Anyone have either of those shields on their 15 RG? Looking for input on the Windvest 12 or 14 inch windshield for my bike. I am 5' 11" with a 32 inseam and interested in their shields. If anyone has pics of a Windvest on the 15 RDGL, would appreciate them posted if you would.

Any input is much appreciated

I put the 12" on my 2015 RG when I bought it because it was the tallest they had. I'm 6'3" 36 inseam just a little shorter than I like. thinking about the klockwerks 14" flare myself

Where does the wind hit you, pretty much full face maybe? With the difference in height ect, maybe the 12" would be a good choice for me.

Thanks for the input

I'm 5'7" I'm running the "10 WV. I think it's perfect, looks like a 12" is for you.
I ran a 12" WV on my 11, then switched to a Madstad. For me the new fairing and this shield is comparable to my old set up and looks better.

2015 RGS 103" Denim Black, Drago's 2:1, SE Heavy Breather, SEPST, Tuned. That will do for now.

Where are you guys finding the WV products for your 15's? I just bought a 15 and would like a WV again but I don't see them on their website. Wonder if they'll be at Daytona. I'll call'm Monday I guess.

Now gone: 15 & 12 RG's, 04, 06, 08 RK's and a Triumph Rocket III

I'm 5'11" with a 30" inseam. I had the 14 " windvest but it was too tall for me. I was looking through the curve so it was a distorted view. The 12" would have been perfect but I liked the look of the clockwerks so I went that route instead

I was thinking the 12" would be the best fit for me. I like the look of the Klock Werks, what size did you get and how do you like it?

I got the 14 inch sport flare in dark smoke. They call it a 14 inch but it's about 12 inches from the speedo housing and I can look over it. The coverage isn't as good as the windvest because the outside edges slope down where the windvest is straight but it's a lot better than the stocker

I also have the new GADS deflectors which made a big difference on the wind coming up the sides of the tank
