Got Desert Dawgs?

I just ordered a pair of Desert Dawg crash bar covers in hopes they will stop some of the cold air from hitting my legs. A friend put a pair on his Harley and said they work pretty well. Anyone have any experience with crash bar covers on their Nomad?

I have a similar product on my V2K from sagebrush designs. The company was great to work with, they were designed specifically for my size bike and the particular brand of engine guards. They fit perfectly and work GREAT. Block the wind and the rain and keep you much warmer.

I've got the ones from Sagebrush designs, too. Yes, they were great to work with, and the chaps do work well.

I used Airlite chaps on my 07 Nomad. They helped a lot especially in wet weather.

I have the Airlites on my 10 nomad. Excellent product, but they are either on or off. I had Bakerbuilt air wings on both of my Valkyries. They are far superior as far as adjustability goes, but I haven't seen any on our Vulcan cruisers.
Take care, Eric

I have airlites on my 2012 Nomad. They are awesome! My feet stay toasty warm. So far I've been down into the 40s with them. Quality product, great price, and they shipped fast.

Where did you get them from? Mine were ordered Monday and still haven't shipped!

Airlites are one piece and are excellent quality. They are from Canada. Google them.
