    Jimbo Shield Time! Help me pick?

    Heard nothing but good things about them. I have an '09 Tdub, so it has a mainly white body with blue and black accents. I'm thinking smoke/grey. Any one else have this color scheme and a jimbo shield? Would you mind posting pictures of your bikes w/ the shields on? My only concern is it is so hot for about 50% of the year here. Now, add on a jacket and sitting in stop and go traffic. So, as shield owners, do they make much difference in airflow to the upper body at low(city street) speeds? I suppose I could just install it in early spring/late fall when it gets cold enough to want to divert the airflow. Or, is it low enough to help funnel air upwards into your jackets? Thanks for the replies.

    I have the smoke color on my 06 blue bike..... Looks good on mine. My wife has the blue one on her 06 blue bike and it looks good... I think he now has 5 colors to choose from..... I've had mine since 07 and the hot weather isn't a problem like the large shields are... Keeps the wind under control on the chest.. OMM.

    You can yank it off in 5 minutes if you feel it gets too hot.

    You won't notice a difference in traffic at low speeds at all. The only time I can even tell my shield is there is when I'm commuting to work or touring. Speeds of 40mph and above it helps keep wind pressure off my chest, which helps my lower back. Plus they make the TW look really good!

    i don't think you can go wrong with the smoke grey or the blue. i have the blue on my '05 color scheme, as i wanted a highlight.

    as littletimmy stated they are so quit to put on or remove, but i don't think they take that much away from cooling.

    I agree, but a little too dark for me.
