2013 AIMExpo: MadStad Engineering – Video
Finding the right windshield for your motorcycle can be a challenge, as you won’t really know it will feel to you unless you ride with. MadStad Engineering aims to take the guesswork out of motorcycle windshields with its adjustable system we saw at the 2013 American International Motorcycle Expo.

MadStad owner Mark Stadnyk says it’s like having a thousand different sizes in one windshield. Hopefully we’ll be able to get our hands on one to find out for ourselves.
