Hating LRS

Never again... Never again. 2 weeks to heat some plastic in a mold and another week to ship it? Hand made? Yeah. That just means they put in the mold without automation. I was a big supporter of this product telling all about the great service and great product. But never again will I buy from this vendor. Never again will I put up with the delays lies and run around from LRS. Made in Nevada? Bull... Why shipped from California? Ordered a month before a trip and wont have product till I get back. Screwed me so Screw them....

It's all fun and games until someone looses an eye. Then it's just a game. "Find the eye"

Had an issue with the fitment of one of their shields on my Rushmore bike not to mention the distortion . I'm done with them.

I had a similar experience with changing shipping dates several times. being told it was shipping only to later find it did not ship that day. ended up letting them eventually ship it. wrote them an email that it would be a better business practice to under promise and over deliver.
Memphis shades honored their timelines and was an easy transaction.
I have a 15 inch LRS dark tint for sale if anyone is interested

Did you buy during one of their big sales? I now have 3 LRSs. I bought the 16" back in early '16 and it developed a stress crack at the corner of the vent and they were very prompt in sending me a replacement shield under warranty. They have evolved their design over the last couple of years. Are they perfect? No, but for the price they are a good shield.

I've had one Long ride shield and had to adjust the location of the screw holes to make it fit, and really didn't care for the distortion at the recurve. I had minor shipping issues, but it was not really that big of a deal; just a little aggrevation. I think it's an example of why cheaper is not always better.
