Is anybody have the 17i inch windshield I can't decide between the 22 inch or the 17 inch I've seen pictures of the 22 inch but none of the 17 if you do can you put up a couple of pictures and how do you like it does it do the job. The boulevard isn't going to hack it in south east texas for longer trips. I'm 6'3 so I want some wind protection and i'm pretty sure the 22 is the one for me but if I can get away with the 17 inch then thats is what i'll get. The other thing I thought about is while doing some measurements It seems I really need something inbetween like a 19 or 20 inch or so I thought about getting the 22inch and cutting it down but I have no experienc in windshields so I don't even know if it is a good thing to do. When I measured it seems the 22inch is going to be right at my eye level thats of course if I'm measuring correctly. I've already ordered the 22 inch windshield but its backordered til sometime next week so i'm second guessing myself

I love my 17 ,at 5'8" it is the correct height to keep the bugs off me but I can see over it without getting a distorted view through the windshield . don't have any pics but the midnite one I got looks great on my Raven ,only wish that you could tint them .

just measured tonite and the windshield is about 3 inches taller than the mirrors are . The exact height is 19 inches from the band on headlight and follows the angle of the forks .

your the man I greatly appreciate it. just went and sat on the bike and using your measurements the 22 inch should be around the bottom of my nose height so I can work with that. On top of that I just got a email telling me the 22 inch windshield has already shipped and it will be here tomorrow. :)
