We quit riding to Sturgis decades ago, by bud got ran down by a RV.
Dodging RVs and trailers is why we dont go any more.

Lead Magnet, check into Memphis Shades Rio series. You can adjust the shield well forward. Mine is a good 2 inches off the brake cylinder.
You may have to also buy lowers if you get buffeting.

There's room, as you tilt forward or back, you'll need to move up or down to keep the light centered.

Interesting info on the Saeng edging. When I got my Concours, it had edging on the aftermarket windshield. I thought it was just auto window molding but maybe it was from Saeng? Either way, on that particular application it made buffeting worse and I removed it.

What I've found that does work, including the Spitfire I put on the XLH was the small clip-on adjustable wings. When just right, you still get airflow, just slower and smooth. Downside is they are ugly and add a bunch of weight high on the shield. The Spitfire in particular moves a lot more with the winglet attached.

It certainly could be explained better on the Saeng website, but I think Micro Swirl Trim is “peel-and-stick” for straight applications only and Gen 4 Edging is pushed on and is able to bend and follow the curve around the edge of a motorcycle windshield.

Why does the page for Micro Swirl ask for motorcycle make and model and for windshield information?
