You will never hear the end of this. To each is own is the best answer. If you like it and can afford it do your thing. I have a windshield on my Fat Boy on my wife's Trike and on my Big Dog Mastiff. Why, cause I want to. There are dudes on here that have floor boards on their dog, I hate floor board, so I took them off my HD Fat Boy. But that is my taste and again to each is own.
