theauhawk In PA, especially in the winter months, you would probably be much happier with a bigger windshield, like the National Cycle Plexistar 2 (um, the one I use), or its bigger brother--the Plexifairing 3.

A larger windshield has many advantages: protection from wind (and thus, wind chill factor), protection from wind noise (both reducing rider fatigue), protection from small or large (ouch!!!) insects, protection from the occasional loose piece of gravel that gets thrown at you (mega-ouch!!!), and of course, protection from rain (you'll get caught out in it, sooner or later).

Fortunately, judging from the posts on this website, a number of worthy windshields apparently fit our bike.

You can start a search for one, by visiting National Cycle's website:

http://www.nationalcycle.com/

or "Memphis Shades"...

http://www.memphisshades.com/

Be very careful with what you use to clean your windshield...some cleaners can discolor it (permanently)...and I wouldn't use anything more abrasive than a cotton cloth.

Knifemaker 10" ? in summer, likely pretty nice. This time of year, kinda useless.

Do yourself a favor and try a bigger one. Women say that size does not matter...but they are a lying...

niterider That shield will help the air to go around you and not hold the air in front of your chest. This helps you to be more aero-dynamic.

hyperbuzzin Have you tried riding with it off?? (although it is kinda cold here in PA these days for that)

I would think it's of some benefit. Even a small shield can help deflect wind and/or bugs.
A lot has to do with how it's positioned. Nearly straight up will do the most deflecting. Leaned way back will deflect less and may even aim some of them bugs more at you instead of away from you.

10" Winshield Functional??

My bike has a 10" National windscreen. Is this functional, or is it more for appearance's sake? Thank you in advance.
