    I like the aero flow. The wings and mini wings help a lot. If I was doing it again I would probably get the medium. Long legs and short torso. I raise it up so I can just look over it., so up maybe 1.75 - 2 inches from full down. Think 8!wouldnhave been able to use more of the adjustment with the medium. Call them and talk to Paige. He can tell you how to measure (2 people job= better, I did mine alone

    I saw an earlier post where you said you had a tall Aeroflow windshield? I've a 2014 GTLe that i just put a Russell Daylong seat on. The seat raised both me and myself up an inch or so, maybe more for her. She loves the new height and I'm happy to have the pegs a bit further away. But the wind has gone up. Even with the stock windshield at full up we both get tons of buffeting.

    I've read lots of posts saying the Aeroflow wings really help.... and they've got a scratch and dent tall Hybrid windshield on sale - a couple cosmetic scratches but nothing serious.

    Question: How are you liking yours now?
    Question: I'm about the same size as you - how far up do you put the windshield for normal 55-75 driving?
    Last question: pillion report? Any comment from the back seat?

    Thanks for your help.... I know, if I can afford a K16 then I should just buy the windshield and get it over with, right?

    Yeah, pretty busy here until after 3/15. Been wanting to go on a flower ride after that. Wife is going to Justin during spring break next week. May have to cut loose. Dad has been in hospital and now in rehab for 2 1/2 more weeks at Plainview. My siblings & I have been switching out staying with Mom. Sorta have to play it by ear. Roland

    It's supposed to clear up tomorrow. I was thinking of riding to the hill country this weekend but don't think I'll be able to fit it in. I like to leave Friday afternoon and come back Sunday afternoon but I think I'll be stuck in the office Friday.

    Roland,

    Yes, so far so good. The storms were moving very fast so each strong wave was through the area in minutes. **** thunder at 2:30 am a couple days in a row has me tired.

    How about you out west?
