I would even be receptive to a personal Email at [email protected] for the time being. Still working on setting up account details. This is just day two for me here. I'm trying my best to figure out the quirks of another forum. I am absolutely SOLD on this windscreen. This is my third one on my bikes. I won't even look at another option. The center vent is a MUST. I went wider and went with the 20" version. I'm 5'10", and it works out great. If you prefer to look "through" yours, the wind noise and buffeting completely disappear !! My preference also is.....go tinted !! Sorry I couldn't help with pics. My private Email account will accommodate those though !! Thanks. -Eric

Eric, several people on the side use an app called Tapatalk. I'm not a huge fan of apps but if you use Tapatalk you can upload very large graphic images - for some reason. The other thing I have done is use a site called If you upload your image, you can get it resized pretty easily. I tend to go to Area 4 on the page and try sizes in the 640 x 480 size to get the image under 192 mg (or whatever the size restriction is).
Save that file to my HD and then I seem to be able to upload. Using resizeimage I changed pictures from something in the range of 4000 x 2640 down to a size where it uploads to the site and looks decent with about 4 clicks of the mouse. might be worth trying. Also, resizeimage deletes your pictures after an hour.

Anyway, I'll be sending you an email and you can shoot me pictures of that windshield. The screen on my bike is OEM Yamaha and 25 inches tall. I'll say this, it blocks the wind but I decided I am not a fan of looking through it. I am 5' 10" as well but tall from the waist up. Lesblank helped me measure and I might go one up from yours in height but I have also heard installing lowers can reduce buffeting.

I use ImgBB to post pics here. It's a free file hosting site. Just go there, upload the pic, select full BB code from the options, then copy and paste the link to your post. The picture will be full sized and you won't have any size constraints.

My dad got a new Strat a couple years ago after an inattentive soccer mom took out his v star 1800. Told me a Stratoliner will be his last bike, even if he meets that soccer mom again. Absolutely loves it. Enjoy!
