Hey GUYS, I know there are lots of guys asking questions here and not trying to take over your thread, but I respectfully have a question myself.
I Am looking to get a BWF for my 2009 V-Star 950. I am 6 Feet Tall and live in Texas. I never ride in the rain and I am trying to determine what shield, or SHIELDS to get. I wear a full face helmet (Shoei RF1100) just in case that matters because I hear all kinds of stuff about buffeting with the BWF windshield combined with that type of helmet.
OK so I was thinking the 9"????? However, in Summer which is coming up any day now, will that take too much wind away from me and eliminate the fun factor?
I see a few of you guys, specifically REDCAT have the 5" for Summer and the 12" for later Fall / Winter. Can you DESCRIBE the differences in the 5" and the 12"
(that's what she said...LOL), seriously though. WHY do you have the 5" for Summer? What does it accomplish when riding and how much air do you get?
In Contrast, explain what the 12" adds to the riding experience.
No Matter what I get, I am 100% getting the LOWERS, as everyone said those are the KEY to eliminating buffeting. I never experienced buffeting so not sure what it Feels like.
if anyone wants to explain that, go ahead. I assume it's the wind shaking your helmet around.
I am Getting the BWF 50% for looks and 50% for a little protection, AND the ability to have a windshield anytime I want it, which is also removable. Speaking of Removability, does anyone with a BWF ever take it OFF? or is it on the bike 100% of the time, just curious.
Thanks and hope my questions will help everyone out to some degree.
