Default Video - MadStad Measurements

I was asked by a viewer to take various measurements on my MadStad windshield so others who are interested in this type of system can make an informed decision on the height and style that they need for their bike.

Click here to see my video.

Thank you
Paul Pomerleau

I'm a fan. Great video!

I have a Madstad but the screen doesn't have the bottom cut out like yours. It's the same height.
I get some buffeting. Nothing major. I wasn't really aware of it at first, but I have had an issue with my eyes drying out on longer trips which I think is caused by the turbulent air that seems to happen right in front of my glasses.
I am shorter than you and I keep the windshield lower than you probably do.
I'm thinking the solution might be to cut out the bottom of my windshield like yours is to allow more filler air to flow behind the shield.
You haven't by chance run the other style without the cut out have you? I was wondering if you had noticed if one was more effective at calming the air than the other? Or heard that it having the notch in it would make the air behind the windshield any calmer?

Besides stock, this is the only other windshield that I have put on my bike and the cutout has always been there.
I can't say for sure if you add a cutout if it would be better for your eyes. But the theory says that it should.
90% of the time mine is at the lowest and farthest back position for maximum air, unless it is cold or raining then I raise it up.

You guys on this website are just too nice.

You should hear all the negative comments I get about my turntable video on a certain motorcycle FaceBook page.
About every 3 months or so my viewership skyrockets because the site posts my video on it.

Then I get about a hundred naysayers commenting on on such things as:
"You are a pu$$y for having that".
"If you can't push your bike backwards then you should not be riding".
"Look at the small bike and helmet he is wearing... he must be from a 3rd world country overseas. He would never survive here".
Some even commented "You don't even have a real mans garage".

I was getting so many messages from people saying "Just push it in", that I finally had to add the text paragraph to the beginning of my video explaining why I made the turntable.

This is why I come to this site often. Everyone here is just so nice.
I just want to thank everyone here for the support that they have shown me since I joined 2 years ago.
Thank you.

Thanks Paul. That is what I am thinking too. I guess I'll find out.
