I have been looking at replacing my wind shield. The original is in pretty grim shape. Anyone have an opinion on Memphis Shades? I like the tinted one with the vent. Suggestions would be appreciated.

I'll go with the vents.

I researched the windshield a long time ago and can't remember the specifics, but I sort of wanted the Tulsa. Well, I just got my Tulsa from eBay last month.

I plan on replacing mine with a gradient black with a vent. Just can't decide to get a standard height, or a tall one.
(I know, you're supposed to look over the shield, not thru it, but, I plan on a couple long road trips next summer, and going thru Fla, don't feel like eating bugs)

How tall are you all that you can see over the windshield. I have the stock windshield on my 1500 SE and at 5 foot 10 I cannot see over the top without really stretching.

Hey Rupert, I also have a 1500SE - a 95 - and it has an adjustable windshield on it. At 5' 11" I can set the windshield so I can't look over the top, or with it all the way lowered I have about 6" of clearance over the top. I usually ride with it set so I look over the top, but can duck behind it is needed.

Cool! How is it for protection - I prefer low profile too!

I'm 6' 3" I like to see over the top too, so I think the standard height will work.

I got the Memphis in standard height. I'm 6'0" and can look over it when needed. I'm happy with it. I don't find any practical difference in adjusting the height. My wife says there was less turbulence with the original shield, though. The "solar" color is nice -- just a slight gray tint throughout.

Sounds good - The Memphis is looking alright to me. Thanks.
