Thanks for all the feedback fella's. Should the top of the windshield be exactly parallel with basically just below my eyes? Like should I be able to draw a straight line from just below my eyes and have it intersect with the top of the shield? Right now when I look at a car out in front of me a good 50ft I can see it just over the top of the shield. Now if I pull up close behind it then I'd have to look down through the shield to see the car (that is if I was right up to it in traffic at a light for example).
I had NO IDEA about that piece that fits over the headlight. I always tried to adjust that so it was as close to the headlight as possible. By removing that it actually helps? Cool.
yeah the lowers are OEM but I have a set that I made myself based similarly to Curt's design. I should probably just get a set of Curt's though. I didn't suspect that my oem lowers were the issue because with my hand I cannot really feel much air from below. Without the lowers I get hit in the chest and collar. Its only over my head that I feel all the turbulence. I love riding this bike. In fact the weather was so nice that I rode the bike ALL WEEK back and forth to work which is a little over 40 miles round trip. All highway though. I would so enjoy it much more if I could just see clearly.
Doc_V - DO you have lowers on your bat wing? Now I have heard that does make a night and day difference for sure on the batwings. BTW
I have the stock seat. I was thinking the same thing too that an aftermarket might lower me down in the saddle a little bit and then I wouldn't need a taller windshield.
Thanks again everyone for the feedback.
