I am looking at a new extra tall tulsa windshield for my bike and was wondering if anyone had tried the
W18415-T Hon GL 1800 Windshield (Tint) w/ VH X-Tall? I guess my question is if going with the tinted windshield will there be a problem seeing at night :?: Any help in this will be a big help to me. I do think that when I trike my bike out that it would be a big ++++ to my wife as far as the air with the taller one.

I am sure opinions will vary but for me a tinted shield is a NO-GO. At night, with a clear shield and some rain and I can hardly see to run the twisites. In the interstate it would probably be o.k. because I could keep the speed high enough to keep the shield clear. I had a clear Tulsa Extra Tall and really liked its aerodynamics.

I have the Tulsa to tall with tint. Tint is a non issue at night for me.
Tint is not any more than you have in your car winshield right now. How is night driving in your cage?
Sure is a help on bright days though.

I have the Tulsa extra-tall, tinted, with vent that I just removed. It worked great for me with no problems caused by the tint.

I just wanted to try something different for awhile, so the Tulsa is in the box in the garage, for now.

Ride Safe and God Bless.

Go with the Tulsa Extra Tall with a vent, you won't be disappointed. It is slanted and will repell the water, unlike the oem. Tinted is what i have and don't really know the difference between the non tinted, but like it during the day. I look through the windshield and the water runs right up over you. Just remember to clean it at specified by the carrier.

Tinted

Thanks for the input on the tinted windshield I believe I will try the tint or at lease look at it, and if it gets here and I think it is to dark I'll just send it back and pay the shipping and get a clear one. :superman1:
