Here are some modern versions of Vetters HIPPO HANDS. The originals were leather and fleece lined...



These dont work on a bike with handlebar mounted mirrors, but should be ok on the 1200... YMMV

thanks for the reply but, is there a wind wing that will fit on the bottom of my mirror like the newer bikes have that will direct the wind off the hands

I met a vendor from Florida today at Wing Over The Smokies that makes wind wings and hand wings that look just like Baker's but are made of thicker material and a lot stronger. I asked if he had a website but alas, he didn't. The hand wings attached to the handlebars via a "L" bracket bolted on at the mirror mounts on the handlebars. He wanted 45 a pair for them, mounted. .

When I was looking for this solution for my 1200 a couple of years ago, the onlykind I found were handlebar mounted, and they were not a adjustable. You had to remove them if you didn't want them blocking the airflow. After getting my 1500 and mounting them, I thought that they might work for a 1200 too. After looking close at the 1200 mirrorsI have here,I definitely think they will work. You will have to flex the bottom housing down a little to get the mount in place, but I don't think it will hurt a thing and I think they will be fully functional. If I get a little time later I'll pull one off of my 1500 and try in on my 1200.

Here's the ones I just mounted. no markings at all on them so have no idea who made them. Bought them off a forum member.
