Okay. So, I got my Clearview shield last night and put it on the Vaquero.
I got the 'Large' Sized Shield, In Light Grey Tint, with the vent. I had a few concerns before I received it. I was concerned about the size. I thought well, maybe I should have ordered a smaller - or a larger. I was concerned about the tint. I didn't want it to be too dark, especially for night riding. I never had a shield with a vent before, so I had reservations about that.
Now that I have it on, however - the size is perfect. Clearview has some pretty good tips for ordering the right size shield, and it worked for me. Prior to this, I had a habit of slouching. I've got some bad discs, so this is no doubt causing me some unnecessary pain. It's a lot more comfortable now. I find myself sitting up straight instead of slouching down.
The tint color is perfect. It's not too dark. It's easy to see through. I haven't ridden at night yet with it, but I see no problems.
I haven't used the vent in the open position yet, but it seems to be of good construction and worked just fine in the closed position.
First thing I noticed when I put the shield on - and this was before I even jumped on the bike - the radio seemed louder. Maybe it's my imagination, maybe it's the shape of the shield. Maybe I cleaned my ears out this morning. It just seems louder, even on the highway.
On the negative side, I'm not a huge fan of how they did the bottom of the shield. You know how on the stock Vaquero shields it has that black plastic piece that covers the bottom where you put the screws through? Their solution was to replace that with what I assume is a vinyl sticker. Don't get me wrong, it works - I'm just not a huge fan of it. This is saying it a little harshly, but I think it gives an otherwise quality shield a 'cheap' look.
That's all I've got to say about it right now. I'd buy another.
