assum ing you are referring to Tulsa...
I'm 5'11" and the standard was good for me.

As for your passenger,it will depend on her height.
My wife is only 4'11" and says that none of the windshields I've used(OEM,Tulsa,Windbender) have affected her in any way.
What changed things for her was the mirror and faring wings.

I believe Alan from Tulsa recommended the tall windshield if the passenger was over 5'9". This was in reference to the original Tulsa shield. Call Tulsa, Alan is a standup guy and will give you the proper onfo.

The biggest "Bang for your buck" is a set of mirror wings (about $35?). Preferably BakerBuilt ot similar that are adjustable so that you can direct air in during hot weather. (Tulsa's mirror wings are not adjustable as I understand it) :wink:

Good Luck!

pjg991,

I'm only 5'8", SO is 5'6". I'll give you her imput as to what a difference the Tulsa made for her. Now some like riding behind the windshield, some like seeing over the top of it, your choice.

The wife says with the OEM Honda windshield she felt like she was getting blasted by the wind. We rode a friends GL with a Tulsa +2. She liked it and I didn't mind seeing through it.

We ended up getting the Tulsa extra tall and have never regreted it. Now she says she doesn't even get a breeze unless I open one of the Air Wings. But that's how she likes it. Just my 2 cents.

I've got the Tulsa adjustable, and due to the extra width it has relieved much of the buffeting on my wife's shoulders when raised to the proper height. The first add on I did was the Baker mirror/hand wings which made a huge difference for my wife. Start there, it's a cheap way to make her more comfortable.

Mine also has the vent which will be wonderful come the summer.

You'll probably be looking through it no matter which model you get. I have the x-tall and love it. You just have to be careful getting on and off so you don't look studid bumping your head on it.

My bike already had the tall Tulsa windshield on it and I was glad. I had put one on my last ride. (GL 1200) They make a big difference. I will say that if you ride in and out of the mountains and valleys, you will get fogging that you will not be able to see through. Some people claim that the vents help that but have also heard from some, that the vents do not help. ???

My SO really likes the side wings and the mirror wings. The side air was the biggest blast for her. You will notice a little bit of handling change at first but will not last long. Well worth keeping the partner happy. Also will help on the passengers sound system noise.
