Default Long Ride Shields

These Long Ride Shields look very interesting. They are made of Polycarbonate (my preference) and they have just been released. And best yet is that their normal $139 price tag is SLASHED 60% to bring the price down to ONLY $60.

But the problem is getting any "measurement" information or install information from them. I have the XCT and can't figure out if this is made just for the XR's or if it will fit the XCT.

Take a gander...I think I'm gonna try one.

Yeah, but when I look at the bracket (their pictures aren't the greatest)...It looks like the 2 holed bracket and not the 3 holed bracket.

So take off the extra xct brackets and put the xc shield on it. That's what I did with my 7Jurock shield.

OK...12" shield ordered. I'll let everyone know about it. I am more of a LOOK THROUGH the windshield person than a LOOK OVER. So I thought I would try this at 12" and try the LOOK OVER for a change.

Those are strange pics. Pretty sure they're photoshopped. The dark one appears to have been pasted from a bike that doesn't have the windshield support members of the Victory. The clear one looks like it doesn't even have bolts in it. One would have to assume the actual product is designed correctly, despite how they appear in the pictures. Let us know how it goes.

I purchased a Long Ride Shield for my HD Switchback's batwing fairing, it didn't work as advertised or well as the windshield I had on so I ended up selling it.....
