Default opinion on Madstad

I am going to get the Madstad windshield and wonder what others though of the colors. I was thinking of Light grey. I am not sure the dark would be good at night. Opinions ?

I have the light grey tint (smoke?) . . . more for curbside appeal - the "cool" factor. I don't notice any side effects one way or the other, day light or night riding. It does manage the wind fine for me. No bobble-head buffeting with half helmet or full face. Works for me. Yrmv,

I went with Madstad's light gray tint. Doesn't much matter to me, because: A) I look over it, except maybe on steep hills, and; B) I hardly ever ride at night.

That said, I recently discovered that I'm glad I didn't go with anything darker. I did some work on a mount for my GoPro such that it looks through the windshield, and anything darker wouldn't have helped the videos any.

I think mine is clear. LOL Was on the bike when I bought it. Doesnt seem to have any tint I can tell at night. I like it is adjustable, although I have not as it has been fine. I look over for the most part.

I have one dark shield and didn't like it when needing to look through it. I won't be buying any more dark shields. One exception might be for a short one which would never be looked through.

When you coming down to the BlueRidge? I live in Roanoke just 5 miles are so from the parkway. On it all the time. However the have a large section closed due to long over due repairs. From peaks of other to just north of roanokjw . I think it is mile marker 88 to 105. Message me and I can give you an update
