What do you mean by Electra Glide "Style", or Road Glide "Style"? Flat vs deep? Frame mount vs fork mount?

What "Style" is FXRT?

I voted RG, because RG and FXR both use frame mount.

Nitram_b4 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
If all I did was highway miles I might want something to deflect a little wind but I would rather take the long way and not the highway

Agree if you run the highway no protection will punish you.

Windshield and soft lowers until temps in the 70's then bare.I agree on the long trips down the highway though nice to have something blocking the wind.

I ride my RK with and without a windshield.

I have 4 different windshields for my E Glide fairing.

What I prefer depends on the day, the ride, the weather.

No one answer.

Even if we don't argue? Why can't we answer?

It's harder to hold on at 70 mph than it used to be.

If I am cruising in a town like Myrtle Beach then I will leave the windshield at the motel. Traffic might get as fast as 45 in some spots. Unfortunately it is a far piece to any town from where I live. I would like a faring for winter riding.

I ride with the windshield on the bike. I wear Ray Ban prescription glasses so I am stuck behind the shield unless I am riding at slower speeds.
