I did a search and saw comments on projekt D AeroWings. The heated grips are great but from what I'm hearing these help. Planning a early April trip to Texas for the motogp.

I'm glad I got myself a set.  It's not the temp that makes your hands cold, it's more about the wind.  The more wind you can keep off of your hands and body, the better you will be.  I can't claim that they are perfect, but the do make a difference and I feel they are worth the investment.

My only real complaint of the bike is the lack of hand protection.

Yep, they fill that open space above the mirrors nicely to keep the wind off the hands. I know on the 10+ they moved the mirrors up but I prefer the lower mirrors on the 08/09's because in the summer months you can pull off the aerowings and have a nice breeze on your hands!  :great:

The wings work very well in cold temperatures at blocking the wind. They also help out a little in the rain. I made a set for less than $25. The majority of the cost was for the sheet of plexiglass. I still have the rough drawing for the brackets if anyone needs it.

I have a set that are smaller than ZG's and since I put 4" risers on, they don't block much wind! I have to make larger ones. Have the bracket so will be easy. When I had two inch risers, they worked great.

Those look great! I love the clear plexi!

I had Baker Built on my '08 and was not impressed.  They were not shaped the same as the gap and let much cold air pass.
ProjektD looks like they fit the gap better.  Almost ordered a pair but ended up buying a used Calsci XLWide windshield from a COG member.
It solved ALL my cold air trouble.
