Since the passenger sits higher they will get a little more wind so I wouldn't think that there will be much that helps the passenger. Most of the air turbulence probably is coming from below not above. Remember it's a motorcycle and there's going to be wind no matter what.
You need to contact John at Freedom Shields and ask him this question with specifics regarding bike, size of you and passenger, what you want exactly...
Freedom shields are primo both in quality and service. Many others share my view and experience.
My wife said there was night and day difference on our 2012 RGS between the CeeBailey I started with and the windvest I finished with. When I got the 2016 I went Windvest and have not looked back. Happy wife happy life.
Madstad. Wife is 5' 10". Even a 16" LRS wasn't tall enough to stop the buffeting. Put the madstad on and not a single complaint about the wind at 90+ on the way to Sturgis. She bitched about a lot of other stuff, but not the wind
Madstad, tried several others before getting it. I am 5'10'', my wife is about 5'5", when you adjust the Madstad you can feel the difference in the wind going over the top of your helmet, and you adjust accordingly. The biggest advantage to me was being able to adjust it, especially when riding in the rain. My wife has never complained about the wind. I believe they still offer a 30 day trial, put it on, take your bike out on the interstate, ride among the big rigs and you see the difference for sure.
IMO, Air turbulence from under the fairing effects the rider more than the passenger. As the rider, you are the wind blocker for your passenger with the exception of the wind around the head area. There are several good shields already mentioned that work well for the passenger. The height of the shield has more to do with blocking wind for the passenger than style. Windvest shields have a bigger curved area at the top of their shields which has the effect of throwing the wind higher over the rider and passenger. Their advantage is you can possibly get away with a shorter height shield that performs like a taller one. Other than that, your options will be different shields for single or 2 up riding, or the adjustable type that will work for both situations. It all depends on what works for you and your passenger and what you like the looks of.
I run a LRS 12" Mako with the GADS001 and my buffeting is nil and has really improved for my passengers. I have a nice comfy pocket at highway speeds and my passengers have said their buffeting is way better than it was.
I didn't see what you ride but I have a 2016 RGU and have been very happy with the LRS 16" Stingray. I'm 6'2" and the wife is 5'9" and this one puts the wind right over the top of our helmets. It is also the right height for me because I can still look over it and not though it.
Hi i went with Long Ride Shield ordered my shield but still haven't got my shipping email its been 3 days now. From what i have read about them they offer very fast service. Doesn't seem that way with my order. Not to happy with them taking a lot time just to get a confirmation from them. Used PayPal so i know they got funds. Will keep you all posted.
Well last night I pulled the trigger and ordered myself a set of LoveJugs for my ‘19 RGS 114.
This bike is the hottest running bike I ever had.
Anyone install these with the frame mount? Any pointers would be appreciated.

Does anyone have any experience with this heel shiftter? i typically don't care for heel shifters as i'm the type of rider with my foot all over the board and find standard heel shifters often in my way, lol. recently i put love jugs on and find reaching around them to up-shift more annoying...
Has anybody dealt with this guy and had a good experience? I read many reviews about people not receiving what they had paid for, and hoped it would be different. Really a cool looking product, but I finally gave up after 12 weeks and had my credit card company dispute the charge.
I've seen other people have issues with this company so I thought I would share my expierence as well.
I'm building a custom Heritage bagger and contacted Bagger Bags and placed my order for stretched saddlebags. Excited as hell to get them, mock up the placement then send off for paint. Boy...
