Had one on my Deuce and had to remove it when I changed the color of my tins. Didn't match! Did not do anything for the ride except make it look sleek. Makes the front end look longer and brings color to a drab area of your bike. As far as aerodynamics? Didn't notice any difference.

Ride safe

I've got the one that Ordy took off of his bike.... (Thank's again... Ordy (IMG:http://www.harleyshoptalk.net/forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) )

Like Ordy said it's just for looks I think it looks great and it's different. It would probably look good on your bike too.

I'm not buffeting expert but I would doubt something so low to the ground in that position on the bike would cause helmet buffeting. To do so the disturbed air would have to rise about 4 feet at speeds over 60MPH where buffeting usually happens.

I would think changes above waist level would impact it more. On my Dyna the only way I could resolve the issue was to install a windvest windshield...which I LOVE!
