More confusion on windshields..

Ok all- I'm around 6'2 and the stock windshield on my 16 RGU seems pretty good to me. Wind does not hit me in the face, it hits my head which so far has kept me cool on hot days. The problem is, it's not the nicest LOOKING thing. Or, as my buddy says, "hideous". So- did anyone change out theirs based on looks alone? How about looks PLUS function? If so, what did you replace with, and why? Clear or smoke? I'd like to clear my own confusion on this, because since I like the height so far, it isn't great looking. Any feedback would be greatly helpful!

I am same height and changed mine out for increased wind/rain protection. I will admit that the improved looks were a definite plus as well.

Is it the Klockwerks 14"? What was the difference from the stock shield?

Yup, it does help direct the air over me better. Allows me to hear stereo better and will all vents closed, does a better job of directing rain over me as well.

I keep all vents open during clear weather and is best with this shield to me for eliminating any buffeting or turbulence.

The Madstad probably offers more protection, but looks hideous IMHO. The KW performs for what I need and looks great doing it.

May I ask what you paid for it? And where you bought yours?

Sure, Direct Cycle Parts. $189.95 once added to the cart. But give them a call to get all the discounts and mention you're a forum member.
