Got my shooter windshield from "Direct" last week and put it on myself....the only mod I have tried to do myself. (LOL) The windshield works very well keeping the wind down. There is more noise and some wind on the head. I am 5' 7" and have the windshield where it is pretty straight up....I think!! The one thing that impresses me is that I am more comfortable at higher speeds than I could have imagined. Tonight was riding down the highway and decided to hit it hard to see how much wind I would get. Got up to 120 before backing off (never been that fast before and it was a hella ride) and the wind was minimal except for above mentioned wind at head level which was not bad. I am now able to ride with helmet visor up when I want to and not get a steady diet of bugs, dust, etc. I like the windshield but there will be some times when I don't use it because I also like the wind to hit me at times. Overall, I give it a passing grade. Great find for us Hal and Lamont. Keep up the good work.
