Baker-Built Air Wings

I just added a set of these to my 2012 Voyager....a very nice improvement if I do say so myself. The design of the upper fairing leaves a little bit to be desired when riding in cold, wet conditions. These alleviate that and when opened, allow for lots of warm air flow when needed. They are expensive for sure, but very well machined and engineered. The pics show them from various angles and in both the open and closed positions.

I had these on two different Valkyries, and the mirror wings on my GL1800. Excellent product that actually works. They are a pain to keep clean in the summer though when the bug splat starts to add up!
Glad you like them. Take care, Eric

definitely looks better in clear. Do you have something shoved between the upper and lower fairings?

Indeed I do....I cut some closed cell pipe insulation to wedge in there and positioned it to move the airflow out to the wings. You can see it in some of the pics. All together, it really improves the over-all protective nature of the fairing.
