Whats everyones take on the windshield bag for the Electra Glides? Worth the $? Enough room? Does it block your vision? Also has anyone see any other options than the three pocket model from HD? I just want it for sunglasses, garage door opener, and an I Pass. Thanks..

Brother has one on his which has 3 pockets and loves it. Stores cell phone, sunglasses, etc. with no problem. Actually was riding one day when I called him and heard the phone ring. He says it does not interfere with his vision.

I've got the HD three pouch on mine. I used to have that single boxy HD pouch and that sucker vibrated like crazy.

I have the triple and love it. I can throw lots of "junk" into it like the cell phone, glasses, some money etc. Only problem I had was a vibration issue so I just put some soft side velcro on the bottom and that solved the problem.

I've got the three pocket. I wasn't sure if I'd like the way it looked or if I'd really use it (wife got it for me for Christmas), but after putting it on I really like it. Holds stuff in a convenient spot. I also had some vibration on the left side of it, but I gently bend that side down a little and it was able to sit flush on the inside fairing & stopped. Doesn't block my vision at all (but I'm 6'2"). Very pleased. It's one of those convenience things that you don't realize you really need until you get it.

I got the 3 pouch on mine and really like it also. You can keep keys, sunglasses, earplugs, condums, cell, a little cash. Pretty handy!

did you guys put anything, like clear plastic, on the inside of the windshield to protect it from being scratched by the pouch?

I have that same problem with chafing on the inside windshield. I used double sided tape on the bottom to keep the 3 pockets from vibrating and highly recommend the 3 pouch holder. I am in the process of choosing a dark smoked 7" windscreen to replace it but need to find a solution before I mount it and it gets marred as well.

As others have said, the 3 pocket HD bag is very useful. Try sticking a few of those small padded circles normally used for preventing chairs from scatching floors to minimize vibration and windshield scratches. Call Benj's HD for 20% savings.
