My vote is off. I had mine on for a couple months after I bought the bike, but decided to take it off for aesthetic reasons. It DEFINITELY looks cooler, IMO... especially if you get some barend mirrors. Plus the only time I found it usefull is 70mph+ Even at lower highway speeds (~60mph) I found that it gave me more of a buffeting affect that was more annoying than a constant blast on the chest.

Also depends on how big/tall you are. At 6'2 190 they really don't do much for me. Wind hits me from the middle of the chest up. I run one anyway because in Fl we get some really big bugs, helps to be able to get my glasses down behind it sometimes. I caught one in the face once 3 years ago and actually had to stop because I couldn't see where I was going. [laugh]

Wouldn't have that problem if you wore a helmet like a good boy. ;)

I have it on right now, but I think it looks better off.
