Anyone Have The Slipstream Windshield

Just purchsed one and wondering how well it blocks the wind. Wanted something that allows some air at the rider. Had the full coverage before, and remember getting hot some days.

Slipstream makes several windscreens. Perhaps a photo or link to the one you have would help.

Good idea. As I look now, it's not a slipstream, but similar>

Looks pretty straightforward, a little larger than my spitfire windshield, but not much. I like mine and I suspect they are very similar.

The Windshield

That looks like my Memphis Shades. It is great in warm weather, plenty of air and keeps the bugs out of my face. When it starts getting cooler my hands will get cold, then I would put the bike up.

Ah. If you want a little more air on you, you can always cut it down a bit.

My bike came with one. It fit well and blocks a lot of wind. I just it off yesterday because I don't like windshields. Bags came off too lol
