Short windshield

I know this question is all about personal preference but what would you guys consider the best short / sporty windshield for the 15+ bikes ?

I have the 9'' Klockwerks on my 17' and like it a lot. I tried the 6'' superlow from Klockwerks but wasn't happy with it. Like you said, it's personal preference.

First off nice bike ! Secondly thanks for the pics, Third is that the 9'' in the second pic ? I had a Klockwerks on my SGS i just traded in so they were deff on my list of possibilities. This also isn't my first glide had a 13 RGC and i know the wind is a little different on these, if you don't mind me asking how tall are you and where do you feel like he wind hits you with the 9'' and do you ride with or without a helmet ?

Thanks

I am a big fan of the National Cycle short shield. It moves the air up and over nicely and it actually is quieter behind it than the stock windshield...don't ask me why, but it is.

Thanks for the kind words. The first pic is the 9". I can dig up a better pic of either shield if you'd like. I am 5'9" and I'd say the wind protection is a little better than the stock windshield. It was as much about the look as it was about function for me. That being said, the radio sounds better and I would say the wind hits me at about the top of my helmet (brain bucket). IMO, it's the best of both form and function
