Got an email the other day that the long ride shields are now making them for the 2015/16 road glides. Intro pricing is amazing. 79 or 84 depending on the style you choose.

Ordered one, waiting to get it, looks pretty nice from the website.

I will post pictures after I get the new shield and get it installed.

What size did you order and what height did you go with? I'm unfortunately out of town right now and would like to take advantage of this price.

I went with the 14" Stingray. I e-mailed the company and asked what size the shield that is on their website with the guy riding it. They said that was a 14". Took their measurements and compared to what i currently have on mine. the 14" Klock Werks Sport Flare. A member on here measured for me (since mine is still tucked away in the garage) and it sits 4.5" from the top of the vent. Compared to LRS, their 13" sits 5" from the vent, which is a little taller than what I have. Before i saw this shield i was considering the 12" pro touring from Klock Werks, that I was told sits 1" taller than the 14" sport flare of theirs (so guessing the measurement would be 5.5" from vent to top). So I thought about it, and I made the decision to go with the 14". Cant wait to get it installed and for the weather to get nice to be able to take it for a ride.

I am 6'3" I think the 14" KW sport flare came up to about level with my mouth, as they say it should be between your nose and mouth. Just guessing though, but either way, i would get small road debris and an occasional bug hit with the 14" sport flare, so I knew I needed to go a little taller. I think in the end, the 14" will fit me nice and the look will be what I want. Will put updates on as soon as I get the shield installed, as well as after I get the first ride impressions. Couple months at the minimum, hoping April or May.

Here is the site that has the photos. I'm not endorsing them just yet, but for that price, you cant go wrong. :)

I ordered myself one as well. 13" stingray. Great price.
I got the 13" Stingray as well. A buddy owed me money for the Xieds i gave him as I got a FP3. I told him about their site and he found that they will take an additional 20 bucks off if you send them a motorcycle license plate. He had two plates and ordered one for me and one for his Street Glide.

Crap. I didn't see that offer about the plates. I've got one just sitting on my work bench too! Maybe I'll send it in anyway.

Yesterday I ordered the 13" stingray in medium tint and it's shipped already. A lot faster than I expected because the website mentioned it could take up to a week due to order volume. I expected it to take about a week since it's such a great price and they must be shipping a bunch of them. I used a ruler to measure for my shield. My wife held the bottom of it on top of the vent, straight up, and we looked at where my eye level was and went down a couple of inches. It ended up being 5" above vent level which corresponded to the 13" wind shield. Long ride allows you to try the shield if you don't take the protective film off. I'll report back once I get it.

So I got the new shield on Friday. Installed it over the weekend. First impression is good. Looks just right for the size, cant road test it because of the cold, so all i can really go off of is how it fits, how it looks.

So how it looks, I like it.

How it fits, I may have to work on it when it gets warmer. Not sure if its a fitment issue yet but after installing, the ends of the shield doesn't sit snug against the rubber seal, see picture. I have an e-mail out to the company, not sure what they will say, but its not the worst thing, maybe it was designed that way. You can tell either from just looking at it, you have to get very close to see it.

Anyways, I will be interested to see what others get, I am 6'3", be curious if anyone my height goes with a lower shield and how low they can go and still get enough wind protection but not have as high of a shield.

Have you considered getting the windshield trim pieces? They help distribute the fastening force of the screws over the entire bottom edge and I think would help solve this issue.

Yeah I was thinking something like that would work, just not sure about that price. Does anyone know if there is a comparable aftermarket? I'm sure kuryakyn has something. Have to look around.

Do you have these? Are they metal or plastic. I looked up Kuryakyn and those are plastic for 80. Just curious.
