So got a wild hair the other day and removed the lowers before a trip to OKC (roughly 90 miles). All I can say is WOW, what a difference. You want to appreciate how much wind your lowers block, take them off. Now don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad experience! With it being 100 degrees every day, that extra wind was very welcomed. And around town, can't beat it. Didn't take me very long to take them off either, maybe 15 minutes tops. So if you're riding an Ultra, and want to be a little cooler during these hot summer days, I highly recommend popping those lowers off and see what you've been missing!

With them on my seat gets hot as hell. I took them off today and like you said WOW. Heat was gone and found it really enjoyable until I hit the rain storm LOL. Missed them then. Anyway I regress, Im planning on putting on highway pegs now that they are off

Been removing and installing them based on the season for years, also re-install my Sancho Wings for cold weather riding.

Like P_bork, I take mine off every summer. When I bought the bike in July 2011 the first thing I did was take off the lowers. Off in June, back on in Oct.

I have a set of leather lowers that I put on when it is real cold or raining. Takes about 2 minutes to install or remove and they fold up and go in the bags.

for the best of both worlds, try just taking the doors off. it opens them up a little more, and still gives good wind management.
