Yes they are great in the winter, but when the temperature hits 70* you will want to take them off.

Yes and they work very good. Your legs will stay much warmer and drier because they keep the engine heat from blowing past you. I have ridden comfortably with them on in 25 degree weather. I wouln't suggest keeping then on once summer arrives.

They're great for the winter and remove virtually all buffeting along with a taller shield and lowers. I would like something similar for summer that allowed some air movement for heat dissipation but not enough to cause the buffeting.

The only issue I've had with them is that you need to make sure that the velcro attachments are snug; if not, a good wind burst will disassemble them while you're riding!
