Because I'm not one of those tough guys that can handle all that wind blowing them off their bike, my first purchase was a sheild. After looking around a bit I decided to go with a Memphis Shades "poptop" sheild purchased from phat performance for a total of 144.43( sheild and hardware are sold seperate). The sheild is black across the bottom, clear at the top, and matches my Midnight Custom Vstar perfectly. Simpe installation, I think it actually took longer to tear it out of the shrink wrap package it came in. I'm around 5'10"so I still get a little wind in the face but this was a dramatic improvement.
