Long Ride Shields

Just got my 11" Thresher from LRS today. Put it on and went for a quick spin around the block.....got it up to about 55-60 for about half a minute.....seemed like the buffeting was much improved......and it looks good.....I'll try a couple of picks.....if I remember right it was about $53 plus $10to ship to WA.....looking forward to getting my CVO seat which may make it even better. FYI....I'm 6'2"

Getting the CVO seat will help a little because it will seat you even a little lower.
But not sure why a 6'2" guy goes with an 11". I'm 5'10" and have a 14" and a 13". Don't think I could go down to the 11" without some buffeting.
I will say I'm sure it looks better with the shorter screen.

Looks are why I started with an 11"..... for that price I figured if it didn't help a lot it wouldn't hurt too much to order a taller one.....for the little amount of time I have on it so far.....I think it'll do the trick......time will tell

Little update.....rode a few hours yesterday with the 11" LRS Thresher and the CVO seat.....felt really good...I could feel a little wind coming in the sides but nowhere near the buffeting I was experiencing before.....seat was a lot better than stock but I'll still need to get it dialed in a bit.....time to call Rich's.

Wish they were closer to me. Shipping for a Stingray would have been $26. Decided not to add a 4th shield option to the bike.

I started with a 13in Theasher light tint so I can see at night. If I sit up straight I see over it just fine. If I slouch the top edge is above my vision. So it's perfect. I'd still be tempted to try a 15in. For the price.

I have a 10" and a 13" Thrasher and they are both great.

For the price they can't be beat.

My 16" is fine with the OEM seat or the Corbin tour. With the Low tour I see over it on level roads but on hilly winding roads I have to look through it a lot and with medium tint I wouldn't want to be caught out at night.

The 10" gives me a lot of wind and will start buffeting at 55 mph and above.
