New Freedom windshield! Sweet!

Today I installed a Freedom 13" sport tour windshield dark tint. It is a huge difference over stock. I highly recommend it! I was worried it wouldn't be tall enough since I'm 6-4" but I am trying to balance looks and function and Freedom knocked it out of the park. Fits the look of the bike perfect and amazingly I can hear the radio much better. The quality is top notch.

Looks nice!

Anything is better than the stock one lol. Heard lots of good things about Freedom Shields. Going to stick with my LRS though. Curious on how a taller windsplitter would be though.

I tried the Windsplitter on my 2016 (demo shield)... It caused more turbulence than stock and the tip vibrated at lower rpm's.

I recently installed the 11" sport touring shield with the medium tint. I'm only 5'9" so I didn't want anything taller. I was initially back and forth between the 11" and 12" but I feel I made the right choice. No buffeting and the top lip of the shield is at chin level which is what I prefer as we all know we slouch when riding for longer than 5 minutes so tip of the nose shield height often times turns into eye level and that's annoying. I can also hear my radio much better but an upgrade to a compete ARC system is in the works later this year.

Nope no issues! Bars are 14" KST Outlaws slightly tilted forward so about a half an inch from hitting.

Yep, I am 5'9" and the 11" Freedom touring works perfect for me. Great product!
