Tall guy looking for LRS windshield recommendation

Hey guys. New to the group! Im 65 and 38 inch inseam. Wanting to buy a stingray windshield but not sure of height to get . Currently using KW sport 14. A bit too much wind. Seen a post were a guy 66 bought a 15 LRS and it was too tall for him. Im thinking about getting a 14 Stingray. Anybody out there with a recommendation? Tried to measure but no one around to help me get an accurate measurement .

Okie, welcome to the forum from Arizona!

Unless you're set on LRS, I recommend that you check out Madstad windshields. They're adjustable height and angle so you can fine tune them for maximum wind buffeting reduction. While the Madstad windshields are an acquired taste, I can attest that they're highly functional for long and for windy rides. Best of luck with your decision!

No where near as tall as you, but for a starting point, I'm 5' 9" and have a stock seat. 11" LRS works great for me. See over the top except when cresting a steeper hill.

And its on a Rushmore.

I am 5'11'' and use a 16" thresher on my RGU. I see over it fine unless I am on roller coaster roads. As I crest the hill I have to look through it to see the road.

604 with 33" inseam. Put on 14" Thresher LRS. It is perfect. Couldn't be happier.
