Swomack's Review / Long Ride Sheilds

Well like I had already posted, I recently purchased two Long Ride Shields.

I purchased a 10" dark tint & a 13" medium tint.

Both are Stringray's

So far I have tried out the 10" Stringray and man I have to say thumbs way up.

I am 6' tall 34" inseem and the 10" Stringray is killer.

The wind is just above my half helmet.

I really like it and the quality was good as well.

Next I will have to mount up the 13" Stringray and give my review on that one as well but after trying out the 10", the 13" is going to be even that much better I'm sure.

I bought the 13" Stringray for the winter time.
I also know I will be able to hear my music better with the 13".

I still have my 13" Klock Werks Sports Flair and I still dog it but with the Sportsfliar I had limitations with my apes.

No issues now, even with the 16" apes I just installed.

If you are looking for a new windshield, I would say give these guys a shot, because they are great and the prices can't be beat.

If anyone has any questions just post it up on this thread.

I have a Thresher and a Stingray in 11" in medium tint. I like bith of them. I like the looks of the Stingray better, but seems the Thresher dies add a little bit more of a pocket of wind protection. Passenger said less wind on her legs with the Thresher, which I though odd, but zi don't ride on the back so what do I know?

Must also say I don't have a lot of experience with windshields, the fatboy was without. But LRS is definitely better than stock and yes, they run sales pretty often and the prices can't be beat.

Swo...That 10" LRS looks good on the sled. May have to get me one for the summer.

I'm also with you on the more room for the bars. I can turn lock to lock with my KST Outlaws.

but not so with the KW 14" sportflare.

For the price of $ 74.00 shipped to your front door, it's the best deal going.

The 10" dark tint currently on my bike works even better then I thought it would.

I am 6' tall and the wind still goes over my helmet.

I also purchased a 13" medium tint Stingray, but I haven't mounted it yet to test it out.

I plan on riding all day tomorrow so Sunday I will mount up the 13" Stingray and give it a try.

I will report back for those that are interested in this product.

I wonder how the 10" would be on the passenger. I'm looking at both the stingray and the Thresher. I really like the looks of the shorter one, but I really do want function over form. I am 6' also.

Would like to jump on one before the price goes back up, but we are pretty much socked in for the winter here in IA, so I wouldn't get to test it until the weather breaks and I doubt they would let me keep it for 3 months and then return it. But like you said, for $75, it's almost disposable.

I'm thinking th 13" would be great for your lady.

If the 10" is throwing the wind just above my helmet a 13" would do even more so I'm sure it will be great for riding two up.

Once again for the price, just buy both.

Hell you can get two for the price of one.

My Klock Werks 14" Sportsflair was $239.00

I paid $150.00 delivered to my door for two new LRS windshields.

Swo. Thanks for the review. I'm wondering if there is any seat height difference, + or -, with your seat vs a stock seat. I'm 6'3 and need the wind to be over my noggin.

Thanks
