Just wondering if any taller riders on here have the boulevard windshield? I am 6'4" so anyone that might be close to that let me know how the boulevard feels before i make the purchase. Thanks!

I'm short at 5'7" and I just put mine on the other night and I noticed that the wind pressure is completely gone BUT now I can't hear a thing at highway speeds and I wear a full face helmet. It's like my head is in a canyon with rushing water LOUD. LOL

i'm 5'8" and also where a full face helmet... I've been having problems with helmet buffer at highways speeds. it sounds like the boulevard fixed the buffering issue but created a noise issue? perhaps earplugs would help??? i know some guys that won't ride w/o earplugs.

i wear a skid lid and I ride on the interstate some and i've never noticed any hearing issues, of course I'm older now and just might not be able to hear as well

I'm 6"1and it helps keep the wind off my chest but not so much my head. I wear a full face and I get a lot of drag at speeds over 75. I'm hoping that by stoping the rear and getting a custom seat that lowers the riding position will help. May look to have a custom shield made just like the boulevard but about 4 inches taller.

good luck finding a good plastics shop, alot of places wont undertake a miniature project like this for less than a small fortune. but once you get it done its worth every penny... 8)
