Gads

I just bought the GADS LTTD for my 2012. I only purchased the triple tree deflector, because I didn't want to add any visual changes.
I was told by Bob at Gads, that it works better as a full system, but there should still be a benefit with the one piece.
Anyone use the LTTD on it's own? And do you have before and after input.
Thank guys

I use the Harley dog dish. Similar to LLTD. It helps by it self.
All the wind deflectors help and the more you have the better protection. You just need to decide which ones and when's enough.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I guess even a little is better than none. I figured with the lowers that I put on (for the stereo) they will give me more protection, so I didn't really need the other parts of the GADS system.
I go get the bike next month so the ride back will tell me......

I put one on my '11 SERGU I had and noticed that I could actually ride with my ballcap forward instead of backwards. Made just that much difference. I put one on my '15 but haven't had much chance to put miles on the new one with this weather.

The Gads full system along with the HD wind deflector set that mounts between the engine guard and fuel tank gives me complete buffeting control. I add soft lowers in winter time but otherwise ride in complete comfort. The complete system is cheap enough and visually you can hardly even notice it.

I purchased te GADS LTTD also as a stand alone. I'm not at home right now to install and use it, but I was told by Bob that it should help some with face wind.

I didn't notice much difference in the buffeting zone but did feel the air on my shins. I believe username panwhenucan is bob from gads

You are correct, that is Bob's name from GADS...
