Damn dude, sorry about your luck. At least bike shoppins fun. You'll be back on 2 wheelz before you know it...I had a small "sport shield" on mine, about 15" tall. just wanted one on there to keep the majority of the wind off my chest. I had no problem looking over it at 6' 0" but never had the opportunity to try it in the rain. Now I know I won't have the chance for a while seeing as it's not on the road, the season is over, and kids knocked the bike over and shattered it. I should have a new one on next riding season.
Another windshield height thread...oy...see here:I'm attempting to determine what size of windshield I should purchase for my 1996 VN 750.
I'm just 5'8" and I've read that one should be able to look over the glass.
I await your advise!
