F4 Windshields vs. LRS Taka, your opinions please

I'm thinking of getting a new windshield so that I can see over the shield a little bit. I've seen F4 at a couple of rallies and I'm wondering if you guys have any experience with them. Pretty expensive in my opinion, but maybe I'm just spoiled. I'm used to buying LRS shields for my other bike so I'm also looking at the LRS Taka, but I don't know how good their Goldwing shields are either. Any opinions on either or both are welcome.

I have the vented F4+4 on my 99 GL1500. and really like. One thing I really like is being able to clean it with paper towel at a gas station and not having to worry about scratching it.

@slowrollin, I know my pal @GoldWingKing had a not so good experience with the Taka product. Not the company but the product.

The F4 is a premier product and high quality. I'm sure other manufactures will start making windscreens for the 2018 @Vegas

This is Don Frank from F4 Customs Inc. There is a big difference in our shields. This may help explain why we think our shields are the best.

Thanks Don. What I'm really concerned about is wind buffeting. I'm thinking of going a little lower so that I can see over the shield. I've had good luck with other bikes, using a recurve. How does the F4 Sport shield do with the buffeting? Also, are you going to be installing shields at Wing Ding 40 this year?

The sport shield is fine for those that want the sport look and it still has the full adjustability that the Goldwing allows. We will be at WingDing installing the windshields for sure.
Hope to see you there

I ended up going with the F4+4 and love it. I usually ride with it full up on the 2018. When I have it full down, I get what wind I want then put it back up. Only complaint is with a light rain, it doesn't like to shed the water very well in the full up position. So I drop it down to let the windscreen clear.
