    Madstad Shield Question

    Hey everybody,

    I am looking at getting a 22" Madstad shield, and was wondering if anybody has the light gray & how you like it?

    Thanks,
    Pikester

    I like the light gray. Just a slight tint, and no edge glow from the headlight.
    The madstad shield is the first thing I put on my bike. Works great, well worth owning.

    Just for reference, I have the medium gray and really like it. I think it matches the grey/black version of the bike quite well

    It does look sharp lue42! At night, if you look through it, is it really dark?

    TSN, I had one on a Triumph and it really made a huge difference. The stock shield might be OK if you were about 4 feet tall!

    I have the light gray. Clear has edges too bright for my taste. I do not notice loss of acuity looking through light gray but adjusted for your height you really aren't looking through it.

    I also bought the light gray. I heard several owners complain about melted displays from the sun reflecting from clear screens. I look over it anyway, so it works well for my needs.

    I prefer clear myself, but it was my understanding that clear was no longer available. If it was me I'd get clear or the lightest tint possible.

    Yeah, it is dark at night but I have mine positioned a couple of inches below my field of view so I am only looking through it for, i'd guess, 15-20 feet in front of the bike.
