Had a change of plans. The HD QD Shield was on back order. I need it alot sooner(Planning a ride for vacation). Just ordered the SwitchBlade™ Shorty® Windshield from National Cycle. It also has some kind of locking mechanism. Even though I rarely stray out of sight of the bike its a nice feeling that it should be harder for "unathorized removal". It does leave hardware on the bike though. I will give it a try.

I know mine aint coming off of my bike. It's a dramatic difference for me. 75 MPH + is smooth as butter and now with the SE Fork Brace, no wobbles or shimmies...

I was looking at these today. Worth a read, especially the second link.

On that second link the seller is American Classic Motors. There was a thread here about them recently, you might want to look at it before ordering.

I just picked up the 58601-04Quick release std height. Will put it on tonight and give it a try on the Hway. Cost me 350 with tax. Looks perty though.
