Hello,

Received my 12" Gunsmoke Windvest shield today. Went for a one hour ride and what a difference from both the stock shield and my 12' Windsplitter. I"m 6' w/34" inseam using the stock seat and my head & ears were in a calm air pocket no mattter what speed I was going. The faring vents were closed for this test ride. Sitting straight up on my RGS the top of the shield is even with my upper lip.

Riding with a half helmet and ear plugs, I could clearly hear the radio up to and including a speed of 75mph. (At freeway speeds I did have the radio turned up to three quarters it's volume without distortion).

All in all Doug did a great job. It's height and tint look great on my blue RGS.

regards,

No, I do not own a digital camera. On Windvest's website they depict a 12" gunsmoke shield on a blue RGS.

Sitting upright (no slouch) the top of the shield is even with my upper lip and I easily see over it.

Just got my 10" WV the other day. Haven't been able to get out with the snow. I prefer the looks of the WV over KW.

Yes, my Windvest is a keeper. Planning to sell my other shields (and other HD items) at my local dealer's swap meet in Jan.

Ok,i got the 12 inch and did 200 miles this weekend. I can see over it and it works well. Part of me wishes i could try a 10 as well because then im pretty sure that would make me say the 12 is perfect

Im keeping it

Thanks rsmith for your feedback. Helped me pull the trigger
