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%.  

Made from impact modified acrylic for added rigidity, this shield performs best at high speeds making it the perfect shield for touring.  Additionally, this shield can be buffed to remove any minor scratches and restore it to its day one shine.

Please note: These are simply replacement windshields and do not come with a vent.

Specs

  • Width - 25.5"
  • Thickness - .156"
  • Material - Impact Modified Acrylic

Fitment Instructions

Our Taka shield is designed to fit all Honda Goldwing 1800 models. The recurve will push the wind up and over you and your passenger. Ideally, you want to size it so you are looking over it by several inches when the shield is in the down position. This will still give you the option of raising it if needed. Measure from the top of the fairing (bottom of the rubber strip) to the top of the shield. Sizes are as follows:

18” - Measures 14” when the shield is down, and 18” when the shield is up.

20” - Measures 16” when the shield is down, and 20” when the shield is up.

22” - Measures 18” when the shield is down, and 22” when the shield is up.

24” - Measures 20” when the shield is down, and 24” when the shield is up.
