If the wind shield is well made, it has good clarity and seeing through it, for me, is not a problem. On my 1200, it had the stock wind shield and I could see over it just fine, but wind and buffeting was a huge draw back.
On the 1500 I have a show chrome, which is 3" wider and about 2 1/2" taller. I like that one, on the 1500, I feel nothing, and with the wind wings, it's like Im in a bubble, no wind, very little rain will ever hit me and most importantly, I can hear the radio.......
So yes, I want taller. Theres a couple of things that I don't like about CeeBaily's, Customer service is one thing, reviews are not that good if there is an issue, and no matter the issue, I have to pay shipping back.......... No thanks. It's also very square and some of the reviews that I have read contributed poor(er) Gas Mileage to that. I laugh when I read that because now every time I see one, I think of what Dusty says about the 1500, "It;s like driving a barn door down the road". Maybe it's the windshield?..........
Some reviews that I have read on certain models, including the tulsa tall, indicate no change or improved MPG. I guess that would depend on what they had on there to begin with. I don't care for the swept back look of the Tulsa Tall, although everyone that has posted about the Tulsa on their 1800, love it.
I may pull the trigger on one of the Optic Armor as it looks and sounds just like the F4, just cheaper. Or I may just stay with the cheaper Show Chrome large windshield, as it works well on the 1500, just isn't as durable, and Im sure a shorter life span.
And later in life, if I find that it's too tall....... I can get the saw out....... Can't do that if it is too short.
