I'm with you on this one.I understand how you feel. I like a full windshield and I like no windshield. I was thinking along the same lines as you............have a quickly removable windshield for when you want to ride in the open air. Now, you may be different, but my only complaint, when I ride at speed with apes, was the wind blast on my chest. My complaint, when riding with a full shield, was that I didn't care for the look and I could not have my bars in the forward position that I wanted, because of the shield. As mention above, a bar mounted shield would have filled the bill. I really didn't want something removable, because I sometimes ride 100 miles of freeway to get to a place that I want to ride without a windshield...........that was my problem. I compromised and just went to a short shield. I don't know the dimensions, but you can see it on my avatar pic. It keeps the wind off my chest at freeway speed, but still gives me the open air that I like. The best thing is that it stays on the bike, doesn't look at that bad and it works for me.
That exactly what I was going to do, because I had a full shield that came with the bike. Instead, I sold it to a friend and used the money to buy a used mini shield. I bought the mini with the money from the full.I'm with you on this one.
I recently installed some mini-apes and I swore up & down that I would not install a shield. Well call me a wuss cus I did the unimaginable.
Had a handlebar mount shield laying around but it was huge so I did the next big thing and cut her down. LOL Looks half a$$ decent.
I thought that I had some pics, but I couldn't find them. I will take some tomorrow and post them if it's not raining. Al I know is that it is a Boulevard Cruiser originally for a Honda. I adapted it to my kawi, but I'm sure they make them make/model specific.Do you have any close up pics? What brand? origin? Sorry for the questions, just want to be informed before I buy.
That'll work. Getting wind blasted on the chest while trying to hang on the apes and the darn helmet choking you into submission ain't cool.That exactly what I was going to do, because I had a full shield that came with the bike.

No kidding.......although I have never had the helmet choking thing with either my half or full helmet. Without a full shield, I feel better wearing a fullface on the freeway. I like my teeth.That'll work. Getting wind blasted on the chest while trying to hang on the apes and the darn helmet choking you into submission ain't cool.
