I only adjust my windshield occasionally normally in the rain.

With my Windbender HPS, I will move it up or down depending on what kind of road I'll be on, highway (up) or 2 lane (down).

When I bought my bike it had the stock shield adjusted all the way up, never moved it until I replaced it with a F4+4 which isn't adjustable. Haven't felt any desire to move that either even if it was.

In the past 400,000+ miles I have adjusted the windshield maybe 6 times and those were probably in the first 2 years, seems like the lowest position works best for me. :thumbup:

Windbender with electric option...

I adjust mine several times per ride. Up on the interstate, down in the twisties and towns.

Soooo... there's really not an option for me to vote for. ;)

In warm weather (70 degrees or above) it's all the way down and colder than that I raise it about 3/4 of the way up just so I can see over it without any special effort.
If I wanted to look through a windshield I'd drive a car but that's just me and I don't mean to offend anyone.

Sometimes a couple times a day, depending on weather.

I put mine in the highest position during cooler weather and any time my wife is on the back. I keep it down in hot weather.

Only if the wife comes along, then I move the Windbender up two notches.

Windshield adjustment

With a 4+ Cee Bailey I put it to the bottom in the rain & use the face shield. But then back up just above mid point & look thru it for normal riding conditions & up further when it is cooler in the spring & fall.
