I have seen them, but have not yet used one.
It is a very interesting concept and if it does what they say it does, it should also cause rain drops to go over your head better.

I have a Tulsa Tall on my bike, and also on my past two 1500s....

I also have the Tulsa tall. I see some reviews coming up on the 1800 board. Google reviews and you will see some. Sounds like a good replacement, but there are some issues with installation they are working on. Waiting to hear a good review for passenger buffeting before I splurge

So I rolled the dice and gambled on this windshield. I needed a new windshield this year so I opted for this one. It is supposed to arrive today. I will report back my impressions on my 1500 after I give it a try, hopefully this weekend.

My buddy Doug attempted to install this new shield on his 1800 today. He was not happy when the sheild gasket could not be fit properly.
He said he would be returning it.
