Windshields that help our passenger

I have been looking for a windshield to help improve the ride for my passenger and help cut down on the buffering. What is out there and works. Wold like to hear what others are doing.

Since the passenger sits higher they will get a little more wind so I wouldn't think that there will be much that helps the passenger. Most of the air turbulence probably is coming from below not above. Remember it's a motorcycle and there's going to be wind no matter what.

You need to contact John at Freedom Shields and ask him this question with specifics regarding bike, size of you and passenger, what you want exactly...
Freedom shields are primo both in quality and service. Many others share my view and experience.

MadStad adjustable windshield. Great for solo riding, forum reviews stated great for passenger. I have only rode solo, but forum passenger reviews was one of the reasons I got one.

I have had a klick works shield and it had a lot of buffeting for both of us. Then I picked up a LRS shield on sale and it is way better for both of us.

My wife said there was night and day difference on our 2012 RGS between the CeeBailey I started with and the windvest I finished with. When I got the 2016 I went Windvest and have not looked back. Happy wife happy life.

Currently bikeless but sticking around for knowledge.

I have a LRS as well. It works good for me. Passenger still gets some wind. but I have an 11" shield.

Like others have said, lowers might help as well.
