Just came across this:

Probably been around for a bit, but flying under the radar.

Good find. For me this falls into the same group as a lot of cosmetic 'farkles' interesting, but really? There must be a need or maybe not.

$50 is a lot to spend to prevent a problem I haven't read of people having.

I did notice they also sell some windscreen cleaner...

Possible uses are during love-bug season, or where your daily route is under construction.
Yes you want to keep your whole bike clean, but in an emergency, you can easily remove the guard, take it into the gas station rest room and clean it in the sink.

But what if you're in a filthy Tennessee rest room?

I don't doubt it has some usefullness, but your err in your assumption (at least for me), "Yes you want to keep your whole bike clean..." Not too much of a concern to me. Haven't washed either bike since June of last year. Unless riding in the rain is like washing it. I wipe the windscreen and headlamp housing each day I ride, but don't get too annoyed with the bug guts. I am not riding a "rat bike" but it's okay if it is a little cruddy with evidence of riding.

Dale, I kinda agree with you. A clean bike is like an unused bike to me.

Show folk you ride it, if I wanted my 'Wing' in show room condition I wouldn't ride it as much for fear of getting it dirty.

Bugs on the screen, proof of being ridden! Stone chips! same.

Used to have headlight protectors on the car, until it flew off one day in a strong crosswind. Went to get a replacement and was informed the materiel the actual headlight was a higher spec than the cover. Then I was asked how many headlights I had had break during my years of driving/riding. Actually - none. So I was spending money to save what?

Needless to say I don't bother now.

The lexan used on the headlight is really tough stuff and odds are you replace the bike before you need to replace a headlight because of some type of road damage or wear. Really seems like an unnecessary accessory.
