I'm going blind or these two pictures are showing two different windscreens!

BTW, I like the first picture -- sharp!

How does the tinting affect visibility during night riding?

Wow. I've gone back and forth and can't see that they're the same -- even when looking for the illusion. The picture taken from what appears to be sitting on the bike, it looks very nearly square in shape, which would be odd, while the picture looking more at the front of the bike, the windscreen looks... well, normal. I'll chalk it up to an optical illusion AND that I'm getting old. :038:

Any other pictures to share are appreciated, and also want to hear your experience of highway night riding when the screen is more in the up position -- how it affects visibility for you. Thanks!

the windshield has the same shape as stock[curve] except being 2 inches wider on top and making it straight on top.regarding night riding for me that's not an issue since i am always looking over the shield not trough it
