Have you ever wondered what the black material on someones engine guard is and why its there? Chances you are referring to Soft Lowers or Soft Lower Fairings. The reason you see them on bikes is they are a quick, easy, inexpensive device that provides protection from the elements. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) carries a huge selection of these personal protection devices.
Soft Lowers, as they are generally referred to also carry manufacturers names of Pac-A-Derms, Desert Dawgs, Motorcycle Chaps, or even Rain Guards, serve a couple of purposes. To begin with, they are a cold weather wind block. This helps divert a large amount of cold air away from the riders lower legs making the ride “warmer”. Another service they provide is keeping Road Slime off the rider. You know the stuff that gets kicked up from the front wheel after it has rained or while it is raining. One advantage each and everyone of us can appreciate is it’s ability to catch bugs, keeping them off the chrome and the riders legs. A really cool aspect of Soft Lowers is the ease of installation and removal, with nothing more than a combination of some snaps, a clip or two, and some velcro. These babies are made to last too with Brass and Stainless Snaps, as well as being sewn with nylon thread for strength and durability. Also for versatility, many have built in slits that accommodate highway pegs most of us have installed. Emphasizing the leading word “Soft” it means you can fold them away when they aren’t in use. This means you can pack them away and only deploy them when you need. Now that my friends is a great product!
Here at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) we are riders just like you. We search for products designed for Riders by Riders. Soft Lowers could have only been designed by a rider because there is no way they these could have been hatched in a Board Room or in a Wind Tunnel.
