I have a 14" Freedom windshield. It is thicker than the others and does not vibrate or flex when riding. I tried others and they were flexing at this height. I'm 6'3" and have a tall police saddle on the bike. I see over this shield easily.

I use the 10" wind splitter by Harley. I'm 6'4" and it keeps the wind over me without obstructing my view.

thanks for the info, do you get much vibration from the windshield?

I get a little buffering. The only way to eliminate it completely is to get one so big it would be totally ugly.

If your talking about the windshield it self? It doesn't shake a bit.

I'm 6'2" with a mustang seat that has me an inch higher than stock. I recently bought a Cee Baileys 7" reverse curve and love it. Its thicker than the stock shield and I don't see any vibration. If you want even more wind protection, they make a 9" and an 11". On their website they have directions on how to pick the correct size for you height and whether or not you want to look through the shield or over it.

Hulkss- Would you post a full pic of your bike that shows the Police seat mounted?
