Rated 5 out of 5 by SnackDaddy Mission Accomplished! Reduces head buffeting, quiets rider bubble
After reading all the mixed reviews, I didn't know what to expect. I still had the stock 8 inch windshield on my bike. Demo'd the 10 inch Wind Splitter, and I instantly noticed the quieter, non-head buffeting rider space. In fact, while riding highway speeds, I tried to lift my head as high as I could (safely), by standing on the foot boards and raising up about half way before I could get even close to the slip stream of the turbulent air. I'm 5ft 8in, and my eye level is still about 3 inches above the top edge of the windshield. The one inch "line of distortion" that everyone talks about so much was right there, as commented on by so many, about 1-2 inches below the top edge, where the windshield curves. But for me, that distortion represented about 5 feet of actual roadway, and it was located approximately 3-4 yards in front of the bike. ***Who rides looking down, right in front of the front wheel? I was so impressed, I returned the demo windshield and bought my Wind Splitter then and there. Looks great on the new Batwing Fairing as well !!!

Being a taller rider (6'4") The stock windscreen on my SGS threw the wind right into my face. I decided to do the dealer wind screen demo to see which wind screen worked for me on my bike. The 10" Wind Splitter was the first screen I demoed . It was perfect for me. It throws the bulk of the wind over my head leaving just enough air movement to enjoy being on my bike. I like having some air moving around me, if I didn't then I would get in my truck and drive around. Its a perfect balance with this wind screen.
Also I highly recommend taking advantage of the free wind screen demo at your local HD dealer. Its free, they came out to my bike and installed the demo screen, and when I purchased the new screen they came out and installed it as well for no charge. Great program.
One negative is that I would like to see this wind screen available in a darker tint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RockBottom Great for wind buffetting, but has terrible visual distortion.
At 5' 10", the top of this 10" windshield sits just a little too high. This creates a couple of problems for me. First, as compared to a non-OEM windshield I had on my previous '11 Street Glide, this one tends to vibrate, or buffet, noticeably worse in the wind. Second, because it is just a little too tall, as I am making turns at slower speeds I find myself looking through the windshield in the area of the recurve. There is terrible visual distortion from the outside edge all the way across the top to the other side in that recurve area, making it difficult to see small obstacles or pick a good path. I find it dangerous to ride with, and have already pulled it off waiting on a replacement.
