    Welcome to the forum. There are as many opinions on the best batwing windshield as there are people using them. Flat, recurve, etc., everyone likes something different. I have 5 different windshields. My favorite for long trips is a extra wide 12", my favorite all around is a 8". You can get a good flat windshield for less than $100 or a recurve for $200+. Do a forum search for
    "windshield" and sit back for a while and read.

    Hi and welcome!!
    Where is the top of the winshield when you sit on the bike.
    It should be around the the same level as your nose. I'm 5'10" and the stock wind shield is about 2" too tall for me. I would like to get a new 10" windshield. The F4 is high on my list

    Like Breeze3at say's everyone has an opinion. I have a Freedom Shield and am very satisfied it is a re curve, you can try it if you don't like it send it back for refund or exchange. I am 6 ft and I use a 9 in. light tint for touring and a 7 in. dark tint for every day.

    9" Memphis Shades (solar tint) for me. I'm 5'10" and my line of sight is now an inch over the windshield on my '09 Ultra. That's what I prefer; looking through the stock windshield(EDIT) for me.
