Windshield Survey

Now the riding season is finally here for most of us like to do an informal survey.

Noticed there are a few new companies making windshields for the GL1800 and at least 1 Tulsa, seems to have faded off into the sunset. So, what are you guys running, have you tried any of the "newer" screens, thoughts, how'd they perform on the highway for you and your co-rider?

For myself and my co-ridered we've been running a Windbender for years, like the way it performs on the highway. But like to explore new or modified screens.

Thanks everyone.

Not helping your search for "new" options much, but I love the Windbender as well.

Stay with what works safely!

Windshields are like tires and oil everyone has a preference. I use a F4 + 4. Use what you like.

Very happy with my Windbender with electric & tilt. Love looking over.
But if I wanted to look through I'd get an F4.

My OEM works for me. I'll put another one on when needed. I have no compelling reasons to risk a change.
