Was finally able to take the bike out for a little ride today with my new shield, got the 12" med smoke sport. Man I wish I got this sooner, the shield is great! Quality of build, got to be twice as thick as the stock one. I left the plastic on just in case I wanted to return it, won't be any need for that, it came off as soon as I got back. If anyone is debating getting one, do it!
