Has anyone used both the Tulsa & the Memphis extra tall windshields...if so which did you like best? And why....I have used the extra tall Tulsa in the pass, but I have no experience with the Memphis...thanks for your input

I don't recommend Memphis Shades. They are soft and scratch easily. Mine looked worse in one year than the OEM did in five.

I had a different experience than Ed. I've had MS shields on half a dozen bikes and they were excellent for me.
Which Tulsa are you talking about? The stock replacement or the swept-back shield?

I have used the X-Tall Tulsa's with vent on my 1500's and now on my 1800.
I like them except for the rain coming over the top and on my lap.
I'm going to try the X-Tall F4 with vent next year.
Thay look like a Tulsa but not swept back as much
To late in the season to give it a try this year.

I've had both. A Tulsa on a 1500 and a MS on my 1800. I prefer the Tulsa for no particular reason other than personal choice.

Tulsa tall on my 1500 and now Tulsa tall on my 1800. Like the swept back aerodynamics. Use clear tubing 3/8" OD x 1/4" ID, slit all the way down and put on edge of shield to deflect most rain away....works well. I like Tulsa. ;)

I tried the tubing trick and it keeps coming off, so I gave up on that idea.
