I agree. (I hate the 10 character minimum requirement on this board hence why I am continuing to type so that you can see my acceptance of your fine craftmanship......I think I hit my 10 now).

you should market them.

How well do the 'fork wings' help with wind and such? They don't look like they do much, but a lot of touring bikes have them.

Thank you.

They help break up the turbulance coming from under the windshield to different degrees depending on the size of the lowers, your windshield angle, riders height, position etc..
