did you stop and measure it afterwards?Capt Cruiser said:For what it's worth. Last year I had a 1" rock come at me on the highway while doing 80mph. It hit about 1" down from the top and although it still scared the crap out of me. it put a small nick in the windshield, and bounced away.
I was sure glad I had a polycarb windshield.
You also need to consider what you want to shield from the wind. I am 6 foot and I started with a 21" Memphis Fats...then a 19"...then a 17"...and now a 15". I obviously look WAY over the shield, but for me thats fine. I seem to get a little less buffeting and I ride with a half helmet and sunglasses with no issues. But the majority of the wind is blocked from my chest...where it really bothers me the most. Definitely stop by a Memhis Shades dealer and see what size makes the most sense for you.gdbontly said:Mine is 21", but it will depend on how tall you are (sitting height), what seat you have (some aftermarket seats are lower), and your riding posture. I'm 5'9", but I have to sit up straight in the seat so my back doesn't hurt. When sitting in your normal riding position, the top of the windshield should make a level line to the bridge of your nose. You should be looking just slightly above the top of the windshield.
