Freedom Shields Ordered

After plenty of reading here and a couple of phone calls to John at Freedom Shields I ordered one of his. I went with the an 11" touring in dark gray. Looking forward to getting it next week and putting it to use.

Good deal. I went back and forth on that shield and ended up going with LRS simply for the price. I am not worried about the clarity at the curve and honestly, dont understand why so many do, you should be looking over the shield. Now I do get looking through it when it rains and some ride in the rain often (me) I swear my new bike is a rain maker!

Mine is on the little brown truck and out for delivery today, just in time for my trip to Colorado this weekend. I will try to get some pics while on vacation and give a review as well. I told John that if get to his neck of the woods I would stop by and check out his shop.

I've had three shields from John and they have all been perfect. Congrats on a good choice.

I am 5'9" with a 31" inseam and have a HD RallyRunner seat on my RGS. My Freedom shield is the 11" touring model in light smoke. Perfect height for me, and I look over it, but I am thinking of getting the same shield in clear. The tint messes with my head in low light conditions. It does look good on the bike. Build quality, service, delivery, clarity, you name it, all perfect. I wish they made shields for my '03 Honda with almost 100k miles on it!

The FS 11" Sport Tour was top of my list after a year of looking and reading, that is until I bought an 11" Cee Baily used from a forum member. It's supposed to be here tomorrow... we shall see, I love the look of the CB. Hope the height does it for me. I tried the 12" HD Windsplitter, another sexy shield but it was just tall enough to bug me, top of shield right in my line of site.
