Garage
I have the OEM boulevard from Honda and it works well for what it is. I wanted something that would hold my EZ pass and not destroy the look of the front end. If I wanted the whole windshield thing I would have bought the F6B and I hear it comes with a radio. I know that for long trips it's more tiring. I wear a full face helmet and can understand how those with a 3/4 or half helmet might need a windshield. My wind shield is good enough for me I hope you find what works for you.

Fooling around in the garage last weekend and come up with a much better looking shield than the Boulevard that works a bit better, also. I took one of the old F6B OEM shields that I had and drilled it to fit the Boulevard bracket. They are cheap on eBay because they replace the OEM screens, too. Being wider and just a bit taller gives more coverage, but it is still nothing that will give the full body protection I think most of you are wanting. With the Boulevard, the wind hit me starting at the chin, where as now it is at the eyebrows. I should mention that I am 6'1" and have a custom Corbin that raises me 2 inches over the stock seat. I plugged the holes by gluing in plastic body molding connectors. It really looks like it is made for the bike much more than the others.

Interesting option. I too use a boulevard screen but need a bit more wind protection for longer rides. Which year F6B screen did you use or are they all the same? I'm assuming that the screen is not so large that the boulevard screen brackets will prove inadequate. If you can post pics that will be very helpful.

I am sure they are all the same. Mine was a 2013.

Let me try another. Pardon the messy garage and bugs on the screen.

Thanks for the pics. That is definitely increased horizontal and vertical wind protection compared to the OEM boulevard screen. Looks good too. If it were fully dark it would be awesome.

That looks very familiar. And quite nice, too.

Put a few coats of Night Shades on mine this weekend and carved out the shape at the bottom.

Again, still tweaking.
