I had just got a new shield, brand unnamed. My wife got a new Street Glide and had been researching options to decrease head buffeting that was so bad it was affecting her vision at highway speeds. Someone told her about Freedom Shields, which is located in Pine Colorado (in the Colorado mountains). She emailed them, and, since we live in Colorado, John and his wife Debbie (owners) drove down and put demo shields on her bike. She got on the highway to test them out and ordered one.
The shield I got was going to have to be cut down some. My wife talked me into going with Freedom Shields. John observed me on the bike and did some measuring. Last Friday they brought the new shields to us and put them on our bikes. I cannot say enough about this shield. No head buffeting, thicker than stock, polished edges, 2" painted black at the bottom to hide the "ugly" parts where it attaches. The recurve is effective but there is no distortion. I ride a '12 Glide, am 6' tall, have an extra padded (custom) seat and I went with a 14" light grey shield.
Great customer service, effective high quality product...I couldn't ask for more.
