    Can anybody recommend a good detachable windshield for my bike? I know Harley makes one. I am leaning towards the low profile to the tune of $359 plus tax! I still have the stock mini apes on the bike and plan on leaving them on for the summer at least.

    Can't say I'm a windshield fan but practicality dictates it for the highway and the long haul. I got no image to protect here LOL. Like to here some feedback from those who have. Thanks

    I like the quality/fit and finish of the Harley units myself but there are others that have some decent quality as well.

    I have a Memphis Shields on my 2006 Street Bob. Half the cost of the HD unit. Quick detach comes off in 5 seconds.

    I hate windshields too.

    See my gallery below.

    I love my windshield, worth every penny paid. Granted, it may not look as cool as without, but the practicality wins for me! Especially when the birds are suicidal!

    Sorry Gallery link didn't show up.
    It's not a great photo of the windshield anyway.
    They're difficult to photograph when they're clean.

    That would mean you have a Harley set of pipes on your bike?
    Maybe you've got a Harley seat?
    How about a Harley air filter and the Harley MAP?

    Boring.
    I see a full Screamin' Eagle HD in the parking lot and I keep walking. Seen it exactly like that before.

    There's a lot of great after market parts out there that kick butt on original HD parts. That's what these forum discussions are all about.
    So I for one would love to hear if someone has found something better for your Harley Motorcycle that Harley Davidson doesn't sell.

    ****EDIT****Looks like Chizzle's been deleted. Now it looks like I'm just talking to myself.
    He wasn't as sharp as he thinks he is anyway.

    Hello: I recently purchased one of the "$300.00" windshield and must echo the earlier comment...you do get what you pay for. The Harley product is quality and works exactly like it is advertised...

    I had the privilege of getting one during a dealer sale so...a little less than retail but not that much (so no room to crow) but I find the relief from the wind, weather and bugs such a plus.

    good luck to you,

    Idaho John

    Windshield might not look cool but its a lot cooler when something hits it first instead of you i caught a lug nut the other day i would imagine that one would have hurt quite a bit at 55

    I have the HD detachable on my 2006 street bob and love it easy on and off and looks ok to. Problem is it is about 2" taller then I would like it ,even in the lowest position. Does anybody no of someone selling a replacement windshield that will fit the harley mounting but be shorter?
