Look at the Plexistar 2 and the Plexifairing 3 from National Cycle.


I had the PS2 and really really liked it.

This is a similar faring (it may be the same one) I use on my GL500: very nice coverage for a 'sporty' faring. I added the LED turn signals.


On my VN, the Maier bug shield is more than enough to block said breeze. If you're more than 5-8, you can buy taller versions.

I'm a little over 5'8", and so shaved almost 2 inches off my PF III. I easily look over the top of it. It's s a great shield. I just returned from a 1,500-mile ride to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and it saved me from zillions of bugs! And, throughout the year, in the rain and the cold, it provides excellent coverage.

I bought the SS-28 from this same EBay posting. I have not put it on the bike yet, but I am looking forward to a sporty style windshield after summer is out (HOT in Alabama).

I've got a ps 2 (currently off) and I like the extra coverage for the hands. Especially on the days I ride and it's in the 30's.

With the temps like they are now, that may not happen again.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

I like the shield but I am nervous about trying to cut it down

I have the Memphis Shades Malibu. It's perfect for me. I'm 5'10" & I can see over the top & it has great hand protection. The only down side is there is no "Lowers" to it. I added some.

P.S. It comes clear. I painted mine.
