Rifle ... alternative to Madstad?

Does anyone have any experience with the Rifle version of Madstad? To my eye it looks cleaner ... and with a larger windshield included in the deal. Tilt ability is also built in.

my guess looking at the pics, is that it is proprietary to their windshield

the madstad is a mount only, that works with any windshield tha is made to fit a stock windshield mounting bracket

I have a rifle windshield system on my DL650. It works fine. It was on the bike when I purchased it. I recently picked up the new Madstad bracket and mounted the complete rifle windshield and mount to the Madstad bracket. I like the ease of adjustment with the Madstad, especially the new version with the thumb screws. However, the rifle is just as adjustable. It just takes a little while since you are using the factory mount to adjust the height. Overall, I like the rifle and if you are one to set-it and forget-it, it would be fine. I do like the clean looks of it.
