Tall windshield users - do you look over or through?
Written by bike2vcu on 2/29/2012 at 10:29 pm

I have the Hondaline Tall, I'm 6'1" and I look over but find that the screen
gives a lot of buffeting. If I duck slightly it improves but that pose is not
practical for even a couple of minutes so I'm going to start trying shorter
shields as I can get them. I would begin cutting this one down a bit at a time
for testing but fear the result would be like the old torque recommendation:
"Torque it until it strips and then back off 1/4 turn." The prospect of going
too far could be costly.
