How long have you had the bra on your 1800 and how do you like it?

I've been thinking about getting one for my White '06.

I think the GL1800 that I've seen with the Black bra's on them look good, I just don't know if they are a lot of trouble keeping them clean and have to be taken off frequenty.

Mine has been on most of the time I've owned the bike. I take it off to clean it and the bike. Easy to put on and take off too. Watch the straps though- they seem to be the weak link.

I've been talking to someone about possibly making a color matched nose mask for mine...

I leave mine on all the time. with a frequent wipe under the edges to get the grit out of the velcro padding at the lip/edges.

I do give it a good soaking with Luxor leather treatment to keep it pliable, and shiny.

Had no problems so far.

Mine's about two years on the bike. I love mine, very easy to clean and like the contrasting look. It is a bit of a hassel to put on the first time, but once she stretched to fit it's easy.

I have mine on since I bought the bike 18 months ago. I love it. I clean under it every month during riding season. It has held up very well. Still looks new.

Does any one have the Baker Wings, and also use the Bra? If so how much trouble is it to put on.

I also had one on since new on my candy red '03.
Were it REALLY works slick in when the bugs are out. Keep a good coat of vinyl wax on it and the bugs wipe off like butter.
I hate cleaning bugs.
If riding in a lot of rain, it should be taken off to dry because of the cotton-like backing.
Also when I detail my 1800 for winter storage, I'll remove it and wax the painted area.
