Richard, You and I have similar stories. I started on a CB 350, went to a 60h Yami, then did not touch a bike for 25 years. I bought an 09 VN 900 Classic LT. Similar thoughts, bikes got heavier, and more powerfull during my Hiatus..
That said, The windshield on a classic is tall - at 5'6", I cannot see over it. But after the addition of lowers it is real nice on the higway. I ride about 20 miles of open interstate to work. The window is worth is weight keeping the wind off. Crosswinds are a challenge cause it's so tall, but it is something you'll get used to - I was real skidish at first, but the 9 is such a great ride it handles it great.
Enjoy, and welcome to the 900 gang....
