I have a bunch of down time right now so i have been researching mods for my 17 street bob. A question came to mind in reference to fairings. It looks like they might help with some wind drag, but how efficient are they? I know a lot of it is style, but how good are they for wind? The Memphis Shades and Arless Ness primarily. The MS looks wider, slightly, and that it would be better for actual efficiency. I like the look of the ness more. Opinions and pics welcome. The search function was also utilized. lol

I had a Memphis Shade on a Sportster I built. I thought it did a good job of reducing arm strain by keeping most of the air off my chest. I didnít think it was all that big and I thought it look good.

Thanks brush. So essentially it cut down on the human parachute affect?
