I am presently using Mikes large touring shield plus a Madstad bracket.
Have not been able to get a whole bunch of miles due to weather, but so far I can say that Mike's shield is going to be a keeper. I can generally set the shield so that I can find a spot that gives me some pretty good comfort. Some days are such that you can hardly get comfortable in your car.
The combination of the movable bracket and the shape of the shield with the flip at the top gives a lot of options for placement depending on conditions.
I also have the Calsci large shield, and it has done a good job for me as well. It is just a little bit bigger than Mike's, but not much. I have not used the Calsci with the Madstad bracket.
I like the looks of Mike's large shield, and I think the flip at the top helps get the wind over my head .
The flip at the top causes distortion so it is not good to look through. With the bracket though, there is enough adjustment so that you can set it to look over the top and still get some quiet air.
Over the past 4 years and 4 different bikes, I have tried a lot of shields, and can say that there is no one that is best. All of them have some good and not so good points.Not everyone feels wind the same way.
I can say that Mike's unit is as good as any I have used, and I intend to keep it on my bike. He makes a good shield for a fair price, my guess is you won't be sorry if you try one of his.
Edited to add somewhere on this site I have posted a bunch of pictures of Mike's shield and the bracket and how I mounted mine and painted the bottom to hide the unsightly bracket. A search should find the topic on windshields.
Anybody else think these buffalo wings taste a lot like chicken?
