GADS Who's using them?

Have a 15 RGS. Who's using the GADS? Who did and took them off? Worth it? I've got the hd FLTR deflectors on the crash bar and they helped. But looking a little extra.

Especially since I'll be riding to Sturgis again. First time on the RG.

I have them on my 16 RGS. highly recommend them. they stop the flow of dirty air from around the tank and into your ears.

I had them on my bike, they work okay. I ended up giving them away due to I'm not removing my Lowers again.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

BB Bomber- I think I have the GADS sys, in a box in the basement. Had it for the 2013 RoadGlide Ultra, worked good. When I get home I will let you know.

Lowers made that much of a difference hey? I haven't ridden a bike with them. I've been thinking about going that route as well.

Thanks, but I believe they are different for 15+

I put them on my '15 RGS after changing helmets and windshield (Windvest 13"). Before GADS I was getting knocked around at speeds over 65 mph, and it made highways riding pretty rough, so I decided to order the GADS. They arrived in like 3-4 days and have made a big difference. Highly recommend them, especially for the price.

I was worried they would look awful on the bike, but I don't even notice them anymore. The dark smoke color blends nicely with my windshield and smoked turn signal lenses.

Yes sir, lowers are the best wind buffeting deterrent you can get, plus they're great in the rain. I also have speakers in mine.
You can get lowers as cheap as $100 and they work as well as the high dollar HD one's. The gloss black is a perfect paint match too.

Starting to lean toward getting lowers and the triple tree deflector .
