$100 is a great price. Now they are on sale, $39.60 for Electra Glide. Fantastic. I'm placing my order today.

Correct height is critical. Normally I slightly slouch and look through the top of the windshield. When the windshield is hard to look through such as rain or snow I sit up strait and expect to see over the top.
So then how do you measure the Electra Glide windshield? From the middle screw to the top of the windshield?
As for the tint, never buy a tinted windshield if you ever expect to look through it. In bright daylight you may not think they diminish the view much but they never improve the view. The problem is your eyes adjust to the ambient light all around you but you are looking through the darkened windshield. If it was possible to dim the light everywhere except where you are looking then it would improve your view. That's what car tinting laws are all about. In cars you can tint any window but the windshield (local laws vary). This way your eyes are adjusted for dim light but you are looking through a clear windshield. Never tint a windshield. That's the law for cars and should be the law for motorcycles. Some motorcycle windshields are very low but when I'm going very slow on a gravel driveway I want to look right in front of my cycle.
If it's bright out use sunglasses. They dim the light everywhere and make it easy on your eyes. The advantage is you can take them off at night.
Yes I know tint is cool but I'm more worried about seeing where I'm going. Ride safe. Use a clear windshield.
On a related note never use those yellow tinted glasses for night driving. The experts all say tinting can only decrease light. (I guess we shouldn't need an expert to tell us the obvious)
