    I started with the touring shield. I'm 6'1" and with the touring shield the wind hit right in the face. The new fairing puts the air around my neck, which I prefer. It is a little louder, but I have gotten into the habit of ear plugs. When you mock up the airtech, see if you like it. If it doesn't work, you could easily sell it on this site and likely break even, as you will have already drilled all necessary holes, etc. I'll bet you like it.

    That's funny that you painted the back of the touring shield. I thought about doing the same thing when I first bought the bike.

    I'm 6'1" as well...should work about the same.I'm sitting on a Sargent seat, which I think is just a scosch lower? .HUMMMMM! I have some thinkin' to do.

    Painting the inside of the shield, gives it [the motorcycle] {IMO} a color balance...sort of like a fairing does...while not being as large, and blocking too much air.

    Nicely done. That bikes looks great. Really like the lines from all angles. Form, fit and function? I'd say you nailed it.
