I'm considering the 'tall' windshield for my Chieftain after a long ride on Monday. At 75 mph into a strong wind I got head buffeting and wind noise I'd rather do without. I guess I've ignored it for the last 15 months. :) I ducked down to look through the shield and it was calm! Very nice but I couldn't ride that way. I prefer looking over a shield but I had an Electra Glide with a shield I looked through and it was fine. With the Chieftain's electric shield I'd have the best of both worlds if I could look over the tall shield in the lowest setting. I'm 6'1" with a 33/34 inseam. Anyone with those dimensions and experience with the tall shield? Thanks.

I seldom ever adjust mine. Just leave it up 98% of the time. But I've always been a behind the windshield type rider. Most every one I know wants to be looking right over the top. I'm 6' 2", 38 - 34 jeans.

I've got the Low Tinted Windshield on my Classic. It's great for around town and short trips. I'll go with the Tall Windshield next summer for a planned road trip to Colorado.
