Atyler, the boulevard screen is just for show. I rode a test bike with one fitted before purchasing my bike it offered virtually no protection. If have ordered a 22" screen from "rifle" it's about to turn up, supposedly they tried to deliver (whatever that means) last Thursday. So.. if you are not in a big hurry I can let you know how it goes. It's supposed to rain here for the rest of this week and all weekend. If Ican fit it before the weekend it should get a good workout. If you want to go for honda parts, have a test ride on the interstate and if you like that go for the big Honda screen.

Took it for about a 40 mile run today....NO Wind Noise! Total protection from the rain on helmet and chest. Recommended big time.

Boulevard wind screen seems small to me but would love to see some pics.... There is a website called Chromeworld and they have a fairing for the stateline that is pretty cool. You can get it with audio or without. pretty spendy though. Otherwise your dealer should be able to point you towards a part number for the windshield that comes on an Interstate.

leaning towards the memphis shades alley cat but have not gotten anything yet. none of the shops near me have shields i can hold up to see what it will do to the look of the bike. I have the high back rest and I am concerned that the wind screen will make the bike look too short. i like the lean look, but I am used to a wind screen on the highway

I want my cake and eat it too

I've got the Memphis Shades batwing fairing and I really like the look of it. I'm 6'3" and have the 12" windshield and I get pretty good coverage, it's not as much coverage as the plexistar on my suzuki. It really does help keep the big rigs from blowing you off the road though.

I just put the National Cycle Chopped Switchblade on my 2010 a couple of weeks ago and I think it is an awesome look for the state line. I have gotten a ton of compliments. I will post a picture shortly

you can check with national cycles, Their switchblade shields snap on and off in seconds, no tools required.
Not sure if they have one out for the Stateline yet though.

I threw on a Memphis Shades Big Shot this past week and gave it the 150 mile highway test yesterday. There is some very mild buffeting at speeds over 70 mph but i'm sure that can be fixed with some lowers (although I doubt I will put them on). I'm 5'8" with a 30 inch inseam. I also have a pop top but I couldn't get it adjusted quite right so the buffeting was a little worse for me.

forgot to mention there's a pic of it in the gallery. it looks much better than i planned.

That's the only shield I've seen that I really liked the look of. I have 2 questions:
1. How hard is it to remove for those times you just want to go bug hunting?
2. Do you look over the top of it, or through it?

It's super easy as long as you get the trigger lock mounts. No tools required and it takes less than a minute. My original plan was to only use it for 100+ mile cruises only so i wanted something convenient. My understanding is even with the quick change mounts its still pretty quick.

I look over the top of it and nobody has ever accused me of being overly tall (5'8", 30" inseam). I think it comes to about the bridge of my nose. It's the one with the 7" cutout and it's 20" from the top of the headlight to the top of the shield.

Thanks for the info, it helps my decision on shields.
