I'm 5'10" (30" inseam) and tried a 11" on a demo bike but found it wasn't much different from the stock for me, it looks good but I'm looking for function.
Decided to go with a 15", I do look through it when slouching but if I sit properly I'll look over it. You still get air but to me it's just a much nicer ride.
I also tried out the soft lowers and in combination with the 15" it pretty much eliminated the buffeting. Now I can cruise at 120 km/hr ( 70 mph) in comfort and hear the radio.
I also got caught in the rain after installing the new shield which kept most of the rain from hitting my face. Just my knees got wet, (had the soft lowers on) but overall the bike gave good rain protection.
Maybe try calling your local Victory dealer and see if they have a demo with a after market shield.
