Bought these for trip to Rolling Thunder. They work helped keep my legs Dryer They do get close to pipe but did not see any problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ACinSD MEH.. :/
I wouldn't say that these deflect a ton of wind, maybe some, but not enough to think they're awesome. The design really forces the wind in towards the engine side of the cover, which would keep your engine running cool...and your feet getting a nice consistent breeze of cool air. Are they better than nothing, yes. Are they a solution to keep wind off your feet in a cold environment, no. Are they cheaper than the $600 hard faring covers, yes. You get what you pay for...mine are going on ebay.
I went on a 1000 mile three day ride in mid 40 degree weather and my feet were still considerably cold at the end of the day. I wore boots with proper weather socks, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Willie Soft Lowers for my 2014 Road King
I often ride in the dark, in the rain in Seattle. The lowers have a highly reflective edge that makes my bike look bigger than it is. And my boots and shins are protected from most of the rain and road grime. The lowers are ease to install and complement the black and chrome paint scheme of my bike. I won't use the pockets as they are inconvenient and in the line of fire. All in all a great addition and ease to take off when desired.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EcoJohn Somewhat Helpful
The Soft Lowers help a little bit. I bought them for use in late Fall when the temperature drops below 60 degrees. They do block some of the wind so I guess they are somewhat helpful. I think the design would be better if the air was deflected down towards the road or around the side of the bike instead of towards the engine. I have not ridden in the rain yet so I cannot really comment on how effective they are at deflecting spray coming off the road.
If you are looking for something more effective, the hard lowers would probably be a better choice.
