Your gonna love it, I have a 12 inch dark tint from them on my 2011 FLTRX and its the best shield hands down out of all I have seen and had, looks real good, the recurve works surprisingly well, Good luck and post some pics when you get that bad boy installed.

I am telling you the thickness and clarity are awesome, you wont be disappointed.
I keep hearing that from everyone that owns one. With my new saddle and wanting to use my Airhawk for longer trips, I am going double check my measurements to make sure I get the right height when I order.

Agreed. The Freedom 13" shield is the best windshield I have tried. I really like it so far. In my quest have evaluated and kept searching until now. Along the way tried out:
- stock road glide 2019 18"
- Klockwerks 13"
- Harley Davidson 12"

would be willing to sell the above if anyone is interested...

I'm pretty sure I will love it from everything I've read. I will definitely post a pic after I get it. I almost did the dark but I thought it might be an issue at night so I dropped down to the medium grey.

Make sure you leave the wrap on it and ride for a while to make sure you got the right size. He will take it back as long as the wrapping isn't removed. I took a 5 minute ride and took it off. Then I decided it was the wrong size for me and couldn't return it. I've tried about 10 -15 different sizes and brands of windshields over the years and Freedom has to be at the top of the list for quality.

that is my intentions. I usually will put a couple of hundred miles on my bike over the weekend, last weekend was a little over 300, weekend before was over 500. Plan is to install (with plastic on) and do a weekend ride. The height should be good since it's the same height as my current shield, only difference is this will have the curved lip and its tinted not clear.

Have that same shield. Have had it since spring . Had to change the height of my windshield after I changed my seat to a mustang super solo. Perfect fit the first time. Great looks, great wind protection. Went with the medium gray tint. A little to dark to look through at night. But otherwise couldn’t be happier.

On my street glide an 8” shield was perfect for me.
On the road glide the stock isn’t too bad at all but I think that I want it another inch or two higher.
What is the stock height on a RG?

Well, on my 18 RGU I haven't measured it, but the stock height is I believe 14". On my 15 Road Glide standard, the stock windshield was the short dark shield that is either 6" or 8". I don't remember for sure because that windshield has been sitting on a shelf for the last 4 years.

A great shield. I love my 14" touring shield. Kinda got frustrated trying to put it on using the directions included. Then I looked on here and found the best way is to start on 1 side and work your way to the other side then titen them all up. I got the medium tint also. You can still thru it slightly at night but I look over mine by a inch or so.

That's about the same amount I look over my windshield. My new Freedom shield will be here Tuesday. really Looking forward to getting it.

remember swflguy, taz has an ultra and you have a custom. the stock windshields are totally different on those 2 bikes. the ultra is more 'stand up-ish' while the custom is leaned back towards the rider more.

i believe the stock windscreen on the custom is either 6 or 8 inches. leaning towards 8 because when we replaced ours with the lrs, we went 10 and it's about perfect and only seems to be 1-1/2 to 2 inches taller than the stock.

congrats on the new shield taz, i would love to get a freedom shield, only it's so hard to get because if i get 1, i have to get 2 (one for the wife as well) and it's just so hard to open the wallet for $400 for shields. but one day......

Thanks for that. I am thinking 10” is about where I want to be. I still need to do some real measurements yet I guess.
I have a list of mods, and this is somewhere on it, lol.
