Default Opinions on $249 Lowers for cooling rider

I'd like to hear any opinions on the $249 Lowers that can be installed on a Vision. Do they help greatly with cooling the rider? I find it a little warm when it tips over 80 degrees.

Guess I'll be forming my own opinion. Stopped by Bill's Service Center in Stratford, WI. They dug a pair up out of a storage box and sold them for 10% off the $249 list price. Bill's has discontinued selling Victory motorcycles. Hard to tell they ever were a dealership. Hoping for cooler summer rides once the lowers are installed.

I have the Baker air wings and use (adjust) them every day. Push'm outward on cool mornings and inward above 75.

I can't say as I have never ridden in the summer without the lowers. My legs do get hot when I am stopped, but I have never had an issue when moving. It gets pretty warm here in Ga in the summer.

They do really help with keeping your legs dry when the road is wet.

The lowers were priceless today. I was overdressed on a group ride. I used my feet to adjust the lowers to increase airflow over my legs despite temps in the low 50's. I also opened my helmet vents and lifted the face shield. The aggressive riding was heating me up from engine heat and my own anxiousness going through curves hard and fast.

Any idea if they had anymore in stock? That seems like a pretty good price.

I bought the last set at Bill's Service Center. The current list price is $249. I saw a set hanging at my local dealer, Sport Rider of Eac Claire.

I had thought they use to be $400. Tried to update my thread title.

I'd recommend buying a set and installing them.
