    Jim I was amazed at the difference they made in my bike, especially on the interstate. Glad you are up and ready!

    Sounds like me, my poor bikes are always filthy. Good looking VTX you got Gary, I have always loved the headlights on these bikes.

    Oh yeah for sure... I could see right off last Friday coming home from the shop that they needed to go back on, (esp for the $25 it cost to replace the plastic panels... No brainer). Thankfully the attaching hardware wasn't damaged, it was another $60 for that). I also have a hypercharger air box/scoop that would invite all the bugs in without a deflector in front of it!

    I was thinking running/fog lamps, maybe some wind deflectors.

    Not sure how the deflectors work with the standard windshield? On my '03 1800C they were part of the windscreen... Fog lamps? Mine are running lights, (I think?) When I go to high beams they turn off with the low beam headlamp.
