    Windshields

    Ok I see there are several mindsets on the windshields so let me try a couple questions. I'd like to hear from folks who have both the Cee Bailey and Baggershield ws.
    First I like the looks of the bagger screen personally as I like the rounder design versus the angular. So with that said:
    Does the 11" Bagger reduce the wind noise so one can at least hear the radio at speeds above 35?
    Same question for the Cee crowd but with either the 9" or 13" vented?
    I actually prefer a little wind in the face and at 6' tall and 34" inseam these heights have been good on Harley Roadglides I've owned.
    Thanks in advance.... T

    I have the 11 baggershield. Cant say how fast you can hear the radio but Iv tested mine to just over 90. And that at about 20-25 of the 30 volume level.

    You hear more pipes, motor and stereo.
    Its not full protection but its not too small either.
    I needed a little less wind but didn't want a full shield.

    Windshield

    I have the 9" Cee Bailey's windshield and I love it. My other bike was a Vtx 1800c that didn't have a shield. The 9" shield will not give you wind protection or help you hear the radio any better. I happen to enjoy riding with the wind in my face.

    I have the 11 inch Baggershield and love it!!!
    Always get comments on it and most think it is the stock shield as it just look like it belongs.

    I have the BaggerShield (11-19") and love it. The 11" virtually eliminated the distortion of the radio at higher speeds. I use earplugs when riding and the music is good for me around 20-25 volume at 70-80mph.

    The top screen in either position does not rub, vibrate or move at all. The extra 2" on each side seems to have really cut down on the buffeting. I like the looks of the smoked screen and no problem to see over/though it.

    Thanks folks. The dealer agreed to throw in the tall Honda windscreen which I'll give a try (since it is part of the deal). I'll look at other options down the road.

    The Honda tall ws is just too high for my liking. Ordered up the bagger shield 11".......

    wind buffeting F6B

    This is my first Wing or cruiser style bike, I came from riding a VFR 800 with riser bars and tall windshield. My VFR did not seem to buffet like this? I have been riding for over 35 years and have had some road racing experience so I am not a beginner.
    I tried the 9 inch Bailey windshield , seemed like I had buffeting still over the stock, so I purchased the 11 in bagger shield ? I still am not happy, It is so bad at 70 mph that my vision seems blurry ( don't laugh ).
    I am 5' 10" , I did not want to go taller to take away the look, I may go back to the stock shield.
    What does everyone else think, I am looking for suggestions.

    Cool

    Welllllllll the Baggershield 11 and 17 are the same windshield with a minor difference...I am 5'10 as well and the 17 is ok for me...I am thinkin about purchasing a taller shield for the trip to Franklin for the rally and only use it for trips because of keeping the look on the bike !!!

    Try putting your taller shield on and get to speed where you have a problem then carefully squat down to a point where it feels decent and note about how many inches you had to get down for comfy ride and use that number for next w/s. My aftermarket shield is ok not much buffing but with half helmet alittle bit too much wind noise...............I have an old stock Goldwing w/s and I'm thinking of cutting it down using this method.

    I'm 5'10" and the CB 13" puts the wind right on top of my open face Bell 500 helmet. I wear glasses and this is perfect. Tried not to go too tall and ruin the bikes looks...

    I recently installed the Cee Bailey 9 inch absolutely loved the look but hated the way it performs. At highway speed the wind was directly aimed at the bridge of my nose making it impossible to ride anyway other than a full helmet with the shield fully closed. I couldn't even crack the shield that's how bad it was, it came off tonight and I slapped the stock one back on. I ordered last night the 11 inch sport shield which can also be mounted at 12.25 inches. I will mount it at the 12.25 inch level first and try it out, if that doesn't work I have a big delimina....go 15 and in my opinion take away from the look, or bag the whole aftermaket shield all together and tint the stock one.

    I installed this afternoon my CEE BAILEYS 11 inch. Dark Grey. I came back from a ride on the highway and I lové it. I'm 5.7 ft and it's perfect for me. Now I can ear my iPod at 70 MPH on volume level 15 without any problem.

    That should work pretty good, that's what I'm running on my bike. I've found that windshields are usually a compromise, none are perfect IMO.

    I forgot to mention the Cee Baileys has a slight gap, the windshield curvature does not perfectly conform to the curvature of the fairing. I noticed it when I installed it, but I pretty much ignore it now that its on the bike.

    I'm 5'-11" and would definitely like a little taller shield. I like the air flowing but would like to hear the stereo better on the highway. For the mean time I really like the looks of the bike so I decided to get a new helmet. My price point was around $300 so after trying a few I found the Scorpion EXO 500 to be a good option for me. I like full face, flip down shield and it vents well. It's also more quiet than my last helmet so I hear the stereo better. I tried the EXO 900 but didn't like it. Wasn't as comfortable and I didn't get any ventilation at all.

    If I were to buy a new windshield today, after hearing what everyone has said, I think I would go with the Baggershield that switches sizes. More wind deflection than stock, still looks nice and if the weather turns bad I could raise it up. Sounds perfect for me.
