Madstad windshield

Hey guys - I have the final version of the Madstad shield on my bike and I have pics. I need to figure out how to post them. Hopefully, I'll get pics up tomorrow.

I just ordered this one. Pretty sure it will work better than the one I have now.

I have about 10 pics to post, but I keep getting timed out by the forum before I'm done with all the descriptions, etc. So, now I'm just going try top attach my first pic and see how that goes. This one is the front view of my shield, darkest tint available. If this works I'll add more pics and info tomorrow.

Here are four more pics of the Madstad shield. It is adjustable for height and angle. In the third pic you can see where I landed with my adjustments. I have the shield at its lowest setting and at an angle of about 34 degrees back from vertical to the ground. The fourth pic shows how nicely the brackets are made. Note that I have the knobs on the outside instead of the inside where they belong.

I don't know what the price is and the Valkyrie shield might not be on their site yet. But, they are available and you can contact them thru their site madstad.com. Also note that I am 5'9" and my eyes are 5-6" above the top of the shield if I sit up straight. I have a few hundred miles on it and only one tiny bug to the forehead. Their design really works.

That's a nice looking shield but I'd need the taller(if avail) one since I'm 5'11.

The bugs and buffeting always drive me crazy but a very small price to pay for the love of riding. Wish there was a self-cleaning shield.

Nice. The brackets do a better job concealing the Frankenstein stuff going on with the instrument cluster than even the dark tint on the windshield. :-)
So the brackets are attached to the forks only by a pair of 6mm screws? Is that adequate?

It looks great!

How much handlebar real estate do these use? My Honda tall shield takes up too much accessory-mounting space.

Mine could still be raised by about an inch and a half. You could also angle it to only 30 degrees. I think they actually recommend 30, but I was trying to make it look as rakish as possible and it still worked for me. Best to get their advice.
