Over the past few decades I have tried many windshields. Except for the stock windshields on Goldwings, every single one of them made things worse. The problem, extreme helmet buffeting. Without a windshield, the air blast is spread out evenly, and it's not bad at all with my full face helmet. With a windshield (that I can see over) it concentrates all that wind, and aims it directly at my helmet. I've had a couple of face shields blown off, and I has one windshield, from Memphis Shades, that made the bike downright dangerous at freeway speeds. It would catch gusts of wind from passing vehicles, especially semi trucks, like a big sail, and yank the grips right out of your hands. I have now sworn off windshields for life. Sad thing is, I spent almost enough money on windshields to have bought another new bike.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
