New Gauntlet and saddlebags

Finally completed the first big project. String of profanities at every nightmare along the way, but it's done. If anyone wants further details about the turn signal fitment issue with the 2017 Street, message me. But no more to be said, here it is for your viewing pleasure.

The new front look adds a new dimension to the Street and I like it. When riding, how much would you say the wind protection has now been increased?

I was wondering about the wind protection as well. I have about decided to go with the bat wing fairing, but don't want to spend the money if the gauntlet does a pretty good job.

Honestly, there's very little wind hitting me in the chest now. Most of it hits me square in the face. It's a little annoying at highway speeds, but I can live with it pretty easily. The biggest difference other than the lack of wind to the chest is the very different stability of the bike in corners. Seems like it wants to wiggle less, and stays a little more glued to the road. It's a great addition, if not slightly a pain in the ass to install. And if you've got a 2017 as I said, be very cautious, the Memphis Shades brackets don't fit 2017 model year but they won't say that.
