Shari loves riding with me, but hates the turbulence we get here in breezy (20 MPH is considered calm) Nebraska. She is 5'3" so her height is not part of the problem. Although the passenger seat on the 1500 is higher than the King/Queen we had on the 1100.
We had a Tulsa on our 1100 and it worked great. But the Tulsa on the 1500 is almost too tall for my liking, although it would most likely do the job for her.
Is there other options that would greatly reduce the turbulence on the passenger?

Personally I like the shorty shields so I can look over them but I hear what your saying about Co rider buffeting. Itís pricey but the best of both worlds. The F4.

I rode a 1500 with a Windbender shield and I liked it, it was adjustable. There hasn't been much said about them lately.

I had the Tall Tulsa Vented on my 1500
No complaints -
The F4 will cost you about 2 MPG but it will be like the cone of silence (ask Bill)
The best windshield for the 1500 is an 1800 ... Wink

Well, for once in our lives money is no object. Since the folks' passing, we are debt-free (even mortgage) and making more than we need to live on. Feels great!

MPG does not concern me. The Tulsa on the 1100 cost 3 MPG and 10 MPH top speed.

The view today. Been experimenting with windshields to keep the buffeting off of Shari and the wind noise in her intercom mic down. Had these wings on a non-vented w/s, didn't seem to help. But with this vented w/s and the wings open like this, it keeps a cool breeze on me and reduced the buffeting on Shari, even meeting semis. However, it was a fairly calm day, so who knows what a windy day will do.

I had the wind wings and added the mirror wings, they seemed to help

I was intrigued by the WindBender, but it's rather pricey. They have a good return policy, if we don't like it we can get a full refund, but I have a feeling that I would be paying return shipping.
On a Goldwing Facebook page a fellow posted a picture of his new 1500 with a WindBender on it, saying he did not like it, and where could he get a stock windshield?
Long story short, I'm buying a like-new WindBender for a hundred bucks plus shipping!
Amazing how that worked out!
