Now that its getting colder here in the Carolina's,
I have moved my windshield up to the highest setting on my 1800.
I had it as low as it could go before. I really don't like looking through it as much as over it. However, when its cooler, it helps to have it up higher. I ride with an open face helmet for now. I have a full face helmet too but its cheap, and has a lot of wind noise
So how many of you look through vs over the windshield?
I am thinking I should really find a higher quality full face helmet, one that is quiet, no buffeting and lower the windshield back down so I can see over it. When its warmer this is not an issue. I am looking for cooler, bordering on cold suggestions.
over it , i leave my house at 4 am everyday and its been in the low 40's but i use my nolan helmet and put face shield down during the morning , and flip it up when i come home , btw i love this helmet when you turn it into a full helmet hardly no noise at all
My 2001 came with an Windbender. It is a 2 piece shield that both parts are adjustable, but designed to look over. It has a lip at the top of the 2nd shield so it is hard to see through the bend. The air flows nicely over me and my rider. I use to have a VT1100C Shadow with a tall shield which was great until it fogged up. I even tried the anti-fog chemicals that would work the first time it got wet.
I just looked up this Windbender online and it is about $450, so I got a better deal than I thought on the bike. I highly recommend it.
