I researched these and other brands. After reading several reviews on WingStuff and other sites and forums, I ultimately decided on the Baker Built deflectors. The video that you see advertising these deflectors pretty much hits the nail on the head. I was still a little skeptical because the video uses a fan to produce the wind instead of actually riding the bike down the road. The fan only produces wind in that one area and not over the entire bike. But, I bought them anyways. Actually I bought the Air Wings, Hand Wings, Leg Wings and Foot Wings. I installed all of them at the same time. Wow, there was a tremendous amount of wind reduction. I could ride at 80mph and feel no more wind or buffering than what I would feel at 30mph without the deflectors installed. It made a huge difference for cold weather riding. On the warmer days, turning the deflectors actually channels and amplifies the air toward you for a better cooling effect. As far as the install, I did all four sets in about an hour. The hand, leg and foot wings are very simple. The hardest part is determining which is left or right. The instruction sheets explain all. It is only one page for each set and if you read them, you will have no problem. The Air Wings were a little more complicated because of the drilling. They do supply a template for drilling the holes where they need to be. The instructions for the placement of the template were simple. A drill bit is supplied. It is a paddle bit primarily used for boring holes in wood. This bit does work fine with the trim piece, but you cannot put too much pressure on the bit or it will bite too much material. Basically, if you just let the weigh of the drill itself, plus just a slight amount of pressure, it will bore the holes clean. Another tip is to drill at a slow speed. I do a lot of riding and these deflectors made me feel I made a good purchase after the first ride with them installed.
