Freedom shield on the way

I just ordered the 10 inch sport touring in dark grey. The wife caught a big juicy bug between the eyes on a ride yesterday, so that helped move a new windshield higher up on the priority list. I based my decision for the Freedom shield on the positive reviews I've seen on here concerning the fit & finish, and the fact that the shield looks good on the bike.

Similar situation happened to me once with my wife on the back except unbeknownst to her, I was spitting into the wind on purpose and she'd catch some in the face. I got a little wet too but it was totally worth it.

You won't be disappointed with the Freedom Shield. I've got the 10" on my 15 and it is night & day difference over the stock shield.

That is a great looking shield and yes many good reviews from guys on this forum.
Got to make sure the better half is happy.
A bug between the eyes feels as close to what a bullet feels like, LOL, holy shit.

I just ordered a Freedom this weekend also. Did lots of research. Got the 14" light gray tint.

Got the windshield in today.

Sitting comfortably on the bike, the top of the shield hits me about an inch below the nose. The 10 inch sport shield is a huge improvement over stock.

I'm wondering if the 11 inch sport shield would make that big of a difference. I'm probably just going to stick with this one though, it looks really good on the bike.

I'll post up some pics later from some different angles.

If there's any particular angle or measurement anyone wants to see, just let me know.

Foxhound, what is your height and inseam? Can you take a couple pictures of your new shield on the bike and measure from the top of the vent to the top of the shield? Thanks!

I'm 5'7 with shoes on, with a 29-30 inch inseam. I usually wear a 29 inch inseam on dress pants/casual khaki pants and a 30 inch inseam in jeans. Jeans are hard to find in odd inseam sizes and a 30 inch length in jeans doesn't seem to make that much difference. I'll take that measurement from the vent this afternoon.

Measurement from top of vent to top edge of windshield.





Profile pic of windshield.



Also please be honest, is the huge profile pic annoying? I ask because it's starting to annoy me, so i'm sure it annoys others but I don't know how to shrink it down. Thanks

Thanks for the pics.

And to answer your question. Yes, it is a tad large for a signature pic. If you click on the photo it takes you to an online photo editor where you can resize and save. Then all you have to do is upload the newly sized picture to your signature.
