Choosing a Size
Looking Over the Windshield
The ideal height is where the top edge of the windshield is level with the tip of your nose. This gives you about 2” to see over the top of the windshield when you are looking straight ahead. With this height, the wind will clear the top of your head for a comfortable and quiet ride. The taller you go the better it feels, especially for the passenger, as long as the top edge doesn’t creep up into your line of sight.
Looking Through the Windshield
The ideal height is where the top edge of the windshield is about 2″ above your line of sight. This gives the most comfort and protection for both the rider and the passenger, but when it rains and the windshield gets wet and dirty it gets harder to see through the windshield.
– If you have a tall windshield on your bike, you can place a piece of Blue Painters Masking Tape on your windshield with the top edge of the tape at different heights and take a short ride to get settled into your normal riding position.
– If you have a short windshield on your bike, you can tape different size pieces of cardboard on your windshield with Blue Painters Masking Tape and take a slow ride to get settled into your normal riding position.
Test Ride our Windshield
Your windshield will come with a protective plastic film applied to both sides of the windshield. Make sure to leave the plastic on the windshield, mount the windshield and take a short test ride, as long as you have good visibility.
If you are not completely satisfied with the height or performance of the windshield, you may return the windshield for a different size or for full credit (less any shipping charges) as long as the windshield is like new and the protective plastic film has not been removed.
Take your time . . . make sure it is right. No worries if you order in the winter months and it takes until Spring to try it out.

I ordered the 17-in freedom Touring shield. It came exactly on the day they said it would. It came out of the package perfect, and it fit my bike perfect. I made it 3 miles before I tore the protective wrap off of it. it is the best windshield I have ever used. The only downside is that now I can hear all the creaks from my various parts of my motorcycle that I could not hear before because of wind noise… lol.

I just installed my new shield. It is awesome. I took for a test ride and it’s dead on. It’s 1.5” lower than the stock shield and works even better. It doesn’t vibrate like the stock shield. Customer service is top notch. Packaging is very, very good even though I hate peanuts. Lol
Review By: Tom – Walworth, WI (14″ Light Grey Touring)
I purchased a new shield from you for a 2007 Road Glide. The shield that I replaced was only 9” tall and the quality wasn’t what I wanted. I had emailed you for information from you about selecting the size I needed and was grateful for the help that you provided. I decided on the 14” medium grey touring model. I am amazed at what a difference this makes in the amount of wind, and buffeting that has been reduced. That best part is being able to hear my stereo much better, and not having to turn the volume up so high to just to be able to barely hear it. It was quick and easy installation. I would recommend your product to anyone looking to replace their windshield. It looks great and does the job!

Got my 12″ windshield the other day. Once again, quality is superb, & it’s perfect for my everyday & short, 200 mile rides. Please feel free to put up the pics, for you guys definitely have a superior product, thanks again for many happy miles behind your bitchin product.

Just wanted to say how pleased I am with the 13” Dark Smoke Touring shield from Freedom Shields for my 2013 Harley-Davidson FLTRX. The shield is great, thicker than the stock H-D, and no visual distortion. My H-D shield used to vibrate visibly at speeds over 45mph. I had my bike up to 80mph with your shield on and zero vibration. I can listen to my stereo at highway speeds and there’s no wind buffeting to my head! Just an exceptional product. Now, onto your service. You invited me to your shop and changed my windshield for a few sizes and allowed me to ride as long as I needed to determine the right shield for me. I can’t speak highly enough about the whole experience. I’ll be recommending you and Freedom Shields to all my riding buddies.

The windshield came in and was installed before my trip. I left Maryland and went through, New York, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Cape Brenton, PEI…..basically covered all the Northeast. I rode 3428 miles in 8 days. I couldn’t be happier with the windshield. I did get into rain, and it gave great protection. I swear I could light a cigarette behind that thing! Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased and will be recommending you to everybody I run into!
Review By: Mark – Salisbury, MD
What a huge upgrade. I have been riding this old CVO Road glide more than 18 years now. I recently upgraded the stereo and now I can really hear it and enjoy it. Way better highway sound. Your windshield is the 3rd one I tried, and it is by far the best. Best looking, best quality, best performance, best design. Great price for the quality guys. The stock shield offered very little protection and the last taller shield I had was flimsy and slotted so it was rattly and certainly not as secure. I always worried it could pop off at high speed and although that never happened it was always a concern. No longer! This thing is rock solid. Thank you.

Hi John, The windshield worked perfect. As you might know we are allowed to ride a little faster when we’re riding in Germany. I went up to 110mph for a period and was able to ride with one hand on the handlebar, amazing what you’re windshield does. I’m very happy with the shield and will recommend it to everyone. Many thanks. Best regards, Bert . . . . PS The pictures are taken in the French Alps!

I received my 12″ Dark shield the other day. I finally got around to getting it installed and taking for that test ride you suggest. I’m pleased to say that I believe this will be the last windshield I’ll ever have to buy for this bike. You definitely have a customer for life. The quality and craftsmenship you put into these shields is remarkable and I couldn’t be happier. I’m proud to say that I bought a Freedom Shields brand windshield for my Harley to any and all who ask. Keep up the good work.
Review By: James – Pflugerville TX
I replaced a 15 inch Harley wind splitter with the 12 inch Freedom. The 15 inch Harley measured 10 inches from the bottom of the radio housing and sat 3 inches closer to the the driver so my visibility over the shield is the same. After a 10 minute test ride getting up to 80 MPH the plastic protection was removed and a 110 mile trip wearing sun glasses and a half helmet commenced. A 999% improvement, minimal buffeting up to 65 and what I consider to be clean air 70 to 75. Totally, entirely, throughly and completely satisfied with the quality and visibility. I am now going to Costco to purchase the jumbo box of toilet paper which will be sent to the windshield engineers at Harley so they can engineer there rear ends before coming up with any more crap. There’s no comparison with your product.

I ordered a Freedom Shields Road Glide windshield. At the last minute my wife and I decided to ride from central Illinois to Florida for Thanksgiving. The shield arrived the day before we were to leave. I installed it according to John’s instructions. I really appreciated having the well nuts already installed. And, by the way, SUPERIOR well nuts to those that one might normally obtain. They are great! The fitment of the shield is perfect. I bought the 14 inch version. It measured exactly what John said it would from the “shelf” of my Road Glide’s radio. So, I was fairly confident the shield would work OK for me on my upcoming 2,500 mile ride. I was a little nervous because, literally, all I was able to do, after installation, was sit on the bike in the garage before we were to leave. The morning we left, November 17, 2012, it was 26 degrees. We rode from the Peoria area to Metropolis, IL that Satruday. Had a meeting with Superman!! LOL! I’ve been on Road Glides since 2000. Many of we “Gliders” will attest that we have a garage full of windshields! I’m not different. I’ve tried lots of ’em. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this windshield! I am 6′ 4″. It is the PERFECT height for me. By choice I want to look “over” the windshield. Again, perfect height. Also, at highway speeds, it keeps me in a wonderful pocket of very “queit” air. Man, that’s a treat. It is, without question, the best windshield I have ever owned. Vision, through the light tint, close up, during slow maneuvers, is easy! The thing is ‘dead clear” No imperfections anywhere! Thanks a lot, John. I love this thing! And, I appreciate the great fulfillment service, as well! I’ll be replacing the shield on my ’01 Roadie real soon. As soon as I can “size” my wife, who rides my “old” Road Glide now. Great job!! Best Regards, Bruce I’ve been on Road Glides since 2000. 2012 is almost over. Many of you “Gliders” will attest that they have a garage full of windshields.

I got my 12 inch Dark Grey windshield for my 2011 CVO Road Glide today from John at Freedom Shields. He and his wife even drove down from the mountains to meet me so I could get some miles on it this weekend. What a superb product it is! I have owned Harley and Klock Works shields for my Electra Glide and the quality of this shield has them all beat. The tint is perfect, the shape totally makes the bike look killer and the edges are as smooth as glass. I already have 80 miles on it and am completely satisfied. I am 6′ 3″ and the 12 inch shield cuts the wind better than the stock windshield that came with the bike. I easily see over the top of it and don’t feel any buffeting to my helmet. Thanks John and Debbie!
Review By: Tom – Centennial, CO
Ok, I finally got the shield on and went for a 50 mile ride. I really like the look of the shield. Fit, thickness and finish are great. Rode with just a half helmet and sunglasses. Got some wind of course, but I would call it “clean air”. So far, I’ve tried the Harley 12” windsplitter, 12” Mako, 12” KlockWerks and yours. I’ve got 4 shields and I’m keeping yours on the bike. Would not hesitate to recommend it to any RG owner. Again, thanks for all your patience and help.
Review By: Richard – Victoria, TX
I purchased a new recurve Road Glide windshield from Freedom Shields last week and it arrived yesterday. It is their 14″ in Light Grey. This is replacing the stock 15″ shield. I wanted one close to the height of the stock shield since I can look over that one and it gives me the wind protection I want. Prior to this I had a 16″ Klock Works, but I did not like it as the edge of the shield fell into my sight line so I had to sit as straight as possible to see over it. The Freedom shield is a very well made shield that has no distortions or imperfections and it comes with a bottom trim piece and well nuts attached. Fit was spot on and very easy to mount. The ride is great with the wind pushed up to the top of my helmet with no buffeting. I do like how well I can see around with the lower sheild and I am very pleased with the product as well as the way I was treated by John. They also offer to take back the shield as long as you do not remove the protective film. I mounted it with the film on and took it for a ride. Once I was satisfied with the performance I removed the film. The film is cut so you do not have to remove the shield to remove the film.
Review By: Les – St Bonifacius, MN
I love my new Freedom Shield! I sell Harleys for a living and I have rode behind most after market screens and Freedom Shield is the best! Other screens are thin and of poor materials. My last screen would flap wildly at speed and scratched easily. I can hear my radio better and smoke a cigarette at 80 ! If you own a Harley Road Glide do your self a favor and get one of these shields!
Review By: David – Aurora, CO
Hey John, The road glide windshield works great . It was worth the wait. The performance of your shield is even better than I had hoped for. I put the original rain-x on it and it works just like I had hoped. I’ll try to get you some pics after thanksgiving. Very happy!!!
