Aeroguard review

Been contemplating these for a while and finally pulled the trigger. Test ride today of about 120 miles in light winds. The bike is a bit more sensitive to wind, but not to the extent that it is any problem. I was pushing 90mph at times, and it was still just fine.

Wind protection is significantly improved. Overall I say it's a good modification. I'll have them painted to match the bike though.

i have exactly the same setup. works good, huge improvement. does not worth painting them. be careful, riding with shield up over 200km/h will develop horizontal cracks starting from upper screws inwards. happened to me 2 times, both right and left size.
