The measurement where you have drawn the arrow is 5 3/8 inches. Down a little lower, it goes to 5 3/4 inches.
I like a tall shield. Some who look at mine think it's kind of ugly. I agree, it doesn't really fit the style of bike.
I ride with a group of guys, and we ride all year long , as long as it's not out of reason.We have a lot of wind here in Cheyenne, especially in the winter, and I find if I raise the shield up high, it really helps keep the wind blast off of my head.
In the summer, I lower it, because the wind is not so much of a factor.
I have a c-14 also,and I have the tall Calsci for it as well. I also have a Cee Baily ultra tour for it. I'm not sure which I like best, but probably lean a little towards the Calsci.
I have tried the naked bike, and itty bitty shields, but that is not for me. I want something blocking the wind for me. If all I did was ride in town, I could live with a small shield, but once I hit the road, I want a big one. I'll just have to live with the ugly part I guess.
Mark at Calsci made the extra tall on my request. He thought it was too much, but I told him it wanted something extra tall. If you go to his web site, that is my bike , the one in the snow picture. I think he has sold quite a few of the extra tall. As far as demand for the really tall ones, I'm not sure . People in my neck of the woods go more for the tall ones that people in more moderate climates I think.
I like the looks of your shield, if my hand guards wouldn't hit I would try one of yours.
Anybody else think these buffalo wings taste a lot like chicken?
