I was wondering if this shield, because of its size helps much or does it really just there for looks?

I'm 5'7" and it helps, but I'm thinking of getting the bullet fairing from memphis shades OR taking the existing Boulevard to a local plastics place and having a new one made just slightly longer and tinted.

I like that it is small, but if it doesn't work that well then no sense spending the money. Not sure what would work the best but still not be too large. What would ya'll recommend? Something definitely with quick detach.

Not sure what the height of the boulevard is but I have the National Cycle defender and its at 15". I need a little more adjustment but for the most part at 120kph on the highway it keep the wind/bugs/rocks off my chest and head. Allows for a little wind to keep me cool. I'm 6'

It does nothing unless you are at highway speeds then it does keep the bulk of the wind off your upper body, if you are looking to keep rocks/bugs, i would go with something else. I only used the boulevard because i really like the way it looked on the bike.

So I finally mounted my boulevard and took a test run today. It does make a difference. I found up to 80kph I could barely feel anything. Over 80 it gets progressively less useful. However I did note that at 120+ I no longer need to hold on for dear life.

Sorry no pics...yet. Not sure if I like the looks, especially with the custom headlight. I do like the look from the riding position. Makes it feel more "sporty."

Overall I'm happy.
