Default Windshield & Lowers Thread for Newbies

Could we start a windshield & lowers picture thread ? List the manufacture of windshield or lowers and if they preform as intended. Guys I've had a lot of motorcycles but I'm new to Victory XC and I'm extremely ignorant of whats avalable, and whos making what. Thanks.

What a great bike!!!

There are already several threads on this. Try doing a search, e.g. windshields, wind, buffeting, lowers, closeouts. Cee Baileys and Ness, as well as Victory make windshields, I'm sure there are others. Victory, and I believe Memphis Shades make fork mounted lowers, and Victory makes a vinyl lower that fits inside the crashbar area, called closeouts.

The trouble with evaluations is that wind and buffeting are also effected by riding position (how you sit on the bike) and by the type and brand of helmet as well (imho a full face helmet tends to exacerbate the buffeting). Some riders aren't bothered by buffeting.

I know about searches but I'm thinking that this bike is so new that there is stuff coming out every week for this thing and was thinking this would be more current. Also get updated opinion on products, sometimes a windshield isn't so great after the honeymoon is over. If I don't get many participants I'll delete the thread.

I wish it was broken down by height and what style of helmet or lack of helmet and what gave the most improvement
