I want to get a windshield for my bike, but I don't know how tall of a windshield i would need. I am approx. 6'2 and my choices are a 15" height, or a 17" height. I just want to know if I buy the 15" (which looks better imo) will I be happy with the windshield, or should I just go ahead and buy the 17" which doesn't look as good?? Thanks

i'm the same height- i put on a 19" and its perfect for me-my line of sight is just over the top edge. depends on how much wind you want to take off your chest.the smaller screens
may cause some head buffeting . the memphis shade does have some adjustment but not much. i'd say if you going for looks get the one you like the best-if you want it to really
protect you i'd go with the taller screen-by the way i hate windshields :lol:

I don't really like them either, but as you know, here in FL with bug season here- it really helps. 70 mph and the big bug coming at you fast really starts to hurt!! By the way, I saw you are a member of the SCRC, i am a new member in the Ocala chapter.....

I have heard from many different people that scrc is one of the best clubs in terms of people being friendly. My wife and I are new to group riding so we are excited to meet people and really have some great riding trips. I don't think we will be going to memphis this year, but mabye next year. By the way, I hate the way a love bug taste's - but after 500 or so they can be filling! :lol:

I too am thinking about the Hellcat seems like a good deal and should give me all the coverage I want. does it take allot of the wind off the chest area?

Has anyone ever tried the Memphis Shades Shooter? This is a handlebar mount shield. BTW I just like to get the wind off the chest. That's why I prefer the smaller shields. Anytime I went with a bigger shield I always get the hed buffeting.
