Hi, Purchased a new GL1800 and am open to suggestion. I want to install a set of Baker Wings and I'm not really sure which color would be best to go with Hot Rod Yellow? I was thinkiiing either clear or smoked. Any suggestions? Thanks.

No matter where you go, there you are.

If I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself... NOT, I had to much fun getting here.

I have always seen the smoked, but it would be interesting to see something like the hot rod yellow with all clear. That would be a tough choice without actually a visual comparison.

My recommendation is to install the ones that YOU think will look the best on your bike.

It's your bike, and your eye that has to look at it the most.

I like my clear ones but probably because they came with the bike. You will love them regardless of color. Cool in the summer, warm in the cold weather. The hand wings especially make an incredible difference in the cold.

I asked my girlfriend, clear or smoke, she said clear so I ordered smoked.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
