    Opinions on baker wings

    Just trying to take the pulse on the opinion of the baker wings and similar products. Im looking to lengthen my riding season with a little more air deflection during the colder months. I know you guys are looking to see where Im located, and I'll admit I not in the "Cold" part of the country, but I work nights and often ride before the sun comes up. (Im in Virginia for those who havnt looked.)

    So do they make a difference?

    Thanks guys

    Wouldn't ride without the baker wings on my mirrors, I'm in southern PA, works great for winter and summer! You won't regret having them!

    Oh yeah. I had them on my 02 Wing for 150+K miles and they are great at keeping cold air away and routing fresh air in when itís hot. One of the first things I added to my B and very pleased.

    Cool weather: wind goes away from you hands.
    Warm weather, coupled with a "BeadRider" under your tush, you get some GREAT airflow between your, uh, 'twins.'
    Great accessory!

    I noticed here in northern Ohio, when there open you get lots of air. When there closed your hands stay warmer, And I get heat from the radiator.
    Have to leave em open sometimes cause of the heat.
    ITS ALL GOOD

    what about the other air deflectors? And by that, I mean the fairing and foot wings. I probably wouldnt do the foot ones, but the fairing my interest me.

    I didn't see the need for the lower wings. I don't feel that much air on me with my legs tucked in.
    If I want more air down low I put my feet on the highway bars.
    Most of the air that bothers me comes from behind and I get some across my ears.
    Without the trunk on the back I feel wind pushing on my back. Your sort of sitting in a vacuum.
    I ware a half helmet most of the time.
    If I were to ride in winter, which I don't. I would have all the deflectors I could.
    Just my opinion.
    ITS ALL GOOD

    Heated gloves and no air deflectors needed.

    I agree with tenxxx as to lowers etc not needed. I had them on my older Wing but not needed on this big fairing. I really like my vented windshield (appears Mad$tadt does really well also) to get rid of the vacuum created behind windshields.
