    Come on guys its not THAT BAD. Would it help if I wrote a number on in in sharpie? It is just temporary to see if I like the height. I am going to ride it that way through the weekend.

    Rapturee, thank you for your generous offer and I may take you up on it if I like the height. I am supposed to be down sizing, so collecting windshields is not something I want to get into.

    /\/\ Isn't that what they mean when they say a bike is a chopper?/\/\

    I tried it plain and the air hit me mid chest, which wasn't bad except my helmet is noisy and I look around a lot and feel the sail effect when I turn my head.

    Then I added the spoiler, which moved the air up to mid face shield which was quieter, but still not great....

    So we are back to the tall honda windshield with spoiler on top.

    Chris, If you want to try a Vstream tall windshield I have one you can try. I am in your neck of the woods. It is a very solid and sturdy windshield, but it creates a lot of turbulence for me. So so I went back to the Madstad.

    I am not terribly unhappy with the tall honda and wing deflector, but as I said, it flexes more than I wish it did.

    Do you mind if I ask how tall you are? Even if I don't try the windshield we should meet up and go for a ride sometime. I don't see many NCs in my area.

    I am 6'2" but I am long on the inseam. I do however use a seat that raises me up to get me some more legroom so that helps me to see over the taller windshields. Give me a shout if you want to sync up for a ride. I am in the Colorado Springs.

    What's your riding schedule like? Weekend only? Evenings? Other?

    I am in Pueblo, and it is pretty easy to talk me into going for a ride just about anytime....

    Weekends typically is about the only time I am able to break free from regular insanity. LOL
