Harley Davidson Windshields - Safety From The Elements
Harley Davidson windshields are placed on the front of their motorcycles (and sidecars) to protect the rider from the weather (snow, rain, hale, sun, wind) and any debris in the air (such as insects, dust) as well as possibly providing aero-dynamic assistance to the rider and motorcycle (in racing). Harley Davidson windshields may be bought with a clear finish or one that’s ‘lightly smoked’ - and you may even be able to find tinted windshields, or simply have them tinted yourself. The benefit of tinted windshields is to block out harmful UV rays from the sun.
