If you look at my mods below, you will see Sancho's wings off til warmer weather. Most definitely pushes more wind up to my hands.

I have over 8,000 Miles's mine and they do block a fair amount of air. The downside is that they catch air from trucks and wind gusts and move the Bike around. I'm on the fence about them. Moving from a bike with solid wheels that caught all air, good and bad, I say they they tend to act similar. Maybe with a comprehensive approach they would fall inline, windshield, lowers, and crash bar deflectors.

I just got my Sancho's wings in... just installed them. It was a breeze. Unfortunately I can't test them out because I'm out (temporarily) a rear fender. LOL

When I get that new jawn (cvo fender) painted and installed, i'll be ready to find out what everyone's talking about!

Had mine on for about 1000 miles they do make a difference. Waiting to see how they work with the Madstad windshield.

Yes for me on the Sancho's Wings. Just installed them this morning and tested them out on the interstate. They definitely helped - they calmed a lot of the turbulent wind that comes up from the bottom of the fairing, making my helmet and glasses shake less, and allows me to hear the stereo better. I still get some buffeting, but without lowers I would be getting this anyway. For the price, I consider this an excellent improvement!

I have had them for 10k+ miles and believe they help. Less wind and with my soft lowers pretty much nothing. Amazed they have lasted this long and as firm as the first mile they were on. Good product.
