It won't hurt your gas mileage. It will keep your knees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. It will also help keep those rear fenders a bit cleaner.

Which color did you get?

I got the clear ones, best thing I did. Almost nothing on the rear fenders. U won't be disappointed.

I got the smoked one.
Excellent choice! Those are the only ones that are nearly unbreakable.

I originally got the clear ones and within several months there where stress fractures on them.
Baker replaced them with the smoke ones, with no hassel.
Great company to deal with. :thumbup:

A great product. But there is one thing to know and remember when installing. DO NOT over-tighten the mounting clamps. The wings are supposed to be snug but movable.

Ahhhh ok, nothing more then the wind deflectors on all the bikes. The word "Trike" threw me...

Wife wants me to get some. I have em under the mirror now, but am looking at Baker's for the whole set now...
