After going through a few windshields (even the Klock Werks Sport Flare 14"), I decided to try the 15" Pro Touring after all. Just like the Sport Flare I had, it is very thick and sturdy material with very good fitment. I just got it Saturday, put it on and went for a couple short test rides with my stock RGS seat and my big Ultra Touring seat. I have to say that I think I have found the right shield - FINALLY! IMO Klock Werks makes the best looking shields, and the Pro Touring is about as cool as they look for a big windshield. I love the lines and "hips" that flow with the look of the bike, and I have ZERO buffeting with both of those seats/seating positions now and using both my full face and half helmet.
I have been running a 13" Windvest, and while that was fine for the stock seat, it was terrible when I would put the "big ugly" Ultra seat on. Too much wind in my face and lots of movement on the helmet. I will keep the Windvest for when I am running my C&C solo seat, since that sits me lower and back. The Windvest is perfect for that and I doubt I'll be able to see over the KW with that seat. There is a little distortion at the top edge of the KW, but it doesn't bother me. The tint color is lighter than my Windvest too. That works out perfectly because I wanted this shield for long distance rides, and a little bit lighter tint will be better at night/dusk. Yesterday I spent all day at an advanced motorcycle skills class and had no issues looking through the shield at the small obstacle markers.
For reference, I am 6'3" with a 33" inseam. I think this shield is a perfect combination of looks and function, and I couldn't be happier!
