Default Victory Lowers VS. Cee Bailey Flectors

So I am riding around with Victory lowers on left and Cee Bailey Flector on right. First it's nite and day vs none. But there is more heat with victory lowers and does creat some air in top right so will require a purchase of the fairing lower to clean that air flow up. Looks. There is somthing about the forged bars. The open up the view of the 106 and with victory lowers now it's moved back and hides part of the motor.But they look nice and like the belong there vs flector just looks like a black blob. It's a tough choice. I think for the money the flector is giving a nice control on wind and keeps the heat down a little better but looks are a little disapointing. Will ride a little more today and take some temp differances and make a decision. Please share your thoughts. I was hopping this would be easy to decide but with my list of pro's and cons it's a tie

I like the CB Flectors, they disappear into the bike and not noticeable.

See, I like the forged bar look much better myself. That's one of the main draws for me, no other bars look like that!

Yeah think I am leaning that way myself. Keeps full view of the 106 and who wants to hide diamond cut heads

Looks like you have the opaque black flectors? I have the dark smoke and think they look good on the bike.

It was a tough decision for me between the two as the forged bars look great. I went with the factory lowers for the locking storage and the iPhone connector not being in the saddlebag. The iPhone readily available has been a real plus when I have to pull over and get directions or change Pandora channels. Too much of a hassle with the saddle bags.

'10 Cross Country Tour, black, way too much to list now. Some videos are available here: My Youtube Channel Feed - SOLD!!! *sniff*

'01 Honda Magna, black, too much to list

Well I returned the Victory hard lowers. Just love the look of this bike and with the victory lowers looks like a tour. The forged bars are beautiful and are very differant. So far now Cee Bailey wins Really starting to enjoy this bike now.
