Stuck on these 2

klock Works 14Ē Sport touring VS Freedom Sport Touring 16Ē. Iím 6í did tape measure bight was close to 8-8 1/2Ē high with several inches above it ( @2-3Ē ) but trying to decide which will give me max flow over me somewhat style and it take from overall looks of ride either. What does everyone else think and have? And any other windshields to look at Iíve looked at Memphis didnít care for them.

Freedom shields are hard to beat. Excellent quality, function, and appearance. Call John at Freedom. He'll set you up with the correct height.

I have a Freedom. I love it. Give John a call and talk with him. If you buy his product you can try it, and send it back if you donít like it. Just costs shipping if you donít keep it.

You could ask for 100 reviews on windshields. There are tons of quality products out there. The right windshield for you is where you want it to be in your field of vision and what style you like. No one can really help you out with that. But if anyone mentions a fugly Madstad, then I'm gonna get pissed!! LOL

If you get the right height on a Freedom Shield, it is hard to beat. Very impressed with the one I just put on my Ď17 RGU. I know it is a bit of form vs function, and as sexy as their Sport Touring model is, I think their regular touring model is pretty darn sexy too, and all the more functional. I just canít stand it when my upper arms get cold from the air that slips around on the sportier windshields, and this one is the best yet in that category. The extra thickness and medium shading I picked makes it look like a shark body part, not a windshield.

14" Freedom touring in light smoke. I'm just under 6' tall and it works great for me and shoots the air over the wife's head enough that she doesn't complain about it. She's holding a white towel in the pix so the tint can be seen. They didn't have the sport touring when I ordered this one. Freedom will be the only company I order from for the rest of my bikes. Great quality and customer service.

I think you should check out the MADSTAD. Awesome windshield that you can adjust to the perfect height just for you.

One thing to consider, the sport is shorter around the side edges and you get hit with some wind , the standard cut gives you the best protection, even though the sport might look more stylish, my money is on standard.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!
