Madstad's on the new fairing?

So... How many have a Madstad on their post Rushmore Shark? Do they work as well on the new fairing as they did on the older ones? How about the looks? Some pics would sure be nice!

Thanks in advance guys!

Harley really improved wind management with the Rushmore fairing. I suspect that a Madstad isn't really necessary. Personally, I'm running a Freedom. It works fantastically.

I'm running Freedom's 12" Touring shield now... but I remember how well the Madstad worked on my '13 and can't help but wonder if there's room for improvement...

I put a 13.5 in light tint on my Ď15. It does great - I think at least as good as the one I had on my Ď13. Wife happy in back too & weíve done some decent distance rides w it.

Iím one of those that actually like the look. Iíll try to attach a couple of pics.

Is that the light grey or medium gray tint? Looks good Ron.

Itís the light tint. I had medium tint on my last bike. I think the darker tint looks better on the bike, but I think I like riding the light better. Just a little better visibility right in front of the bike and at night.
