Description
 
The 'Taka', which is Japanese for hawk or falcon, pays homage to the GoldWing emblem Honda has used for decades. Long Ride Shields has long been an innovative designer of custom windshields designed to reduce the buffeting created as a motorcycle slices through the wind and to improve safety and stability while operating a motorcycle. The 'Taka' shield is a significantly enhanced design over the OEM windshield and reduces buffeting by more than 60%. Most windshields provide a reduction for the driver, but the passenger suffers greatly as wind surrounds the passenger and creates an uncomfortable situation. The 'Taka' all but eliminates this situation for the passenger which recent tests have revealed.

**2001 - 2004 Goldwings may be required to purchase new 1800 vents.

Love the taka 22 February 11, 2016
Reviewer: Dale Parsons from Clarkdale, AZ 86324, AZ United States  
I ordered the wrong hight taka for my gl 1800 and James at long rides was so good to exchange it.  I just paid shipping back to them.    I just put the new 22 inch one on and wheat for a long ride.   I must say I love the shield.   It kicks the air up higher then the OEM and I could even hear my stereo clearer.  
Good customer service and a good shield.   I am happy with my choice.   Dale parsons.

Excellent August 5, 2015
Reviewer: Darryl Woods from Jamaica, NY United States  
Returned to motorcycling five weeks ago with the purchase of a 1996 Gold Wing Interstate. The only major matter that needed attention was replacement of the windshield.
Ordered the Taka Re-curve and it arrived a week-and-a-half earlier than I was made to expect.
I was immediately stunned at how much lighter it was than the original.
Installed it on Sunday (August 2nd, 2015) and rode to work the next day, and the next, then it struck me this morning...there is absolutely no wind noise or buffeting! This is with the windshield set at the lowest height, and at 80 mph.
The original windshield was two inches taller, set at half-way adjustment, and at 80 mph I would crouch a bit under it with my jacket sleeves flapping, wind hitting my chest, knees hugging the cowl, pulling on the handlebar, and hearing nothing but wind noise. You shouldn't have to ride like that.
Now I don't.
