Very happy with this puruchase
Oddly enough, I have the same commute as the previous reviewer (~120 miles, mostly interstate).
I installed the handguards right before my commute this morning, and they performed flawlessly. Temperatures were at about 45 degrees F when I left, and my hands were totally shielded from the wind. My gloves (Held Race-Tex Gore-Tex) are essentially uninsulated, so they would not have held up on their own.
Speeds ranged from 5mph traffic to 80mph on open interstate. The guards held their shape and position perfectly, and I had plenty of room to work the controls.
I also had no issues with fairing clearance. There is a small amount of contact, but only at very close to full lock. The flexibility of the guard made this a total non-issue, and I was even able to lock the bars when I parked.
Now, I only have 60 miles under my belt with these guards, but I have no complaints. I will update the review should I find anything upsetting, but I doubt that will happen.
If you are considering these, just do it.

Lengthy review but please read
Ready for winter riding - My commute is 133 miles round trip and the morning temps already being in the low 40s. The Barkbuster Blizzard Handguards (I'll refer to them as BBHgs) have kept the cold at bay while wearing non insulated gloves and I arrived at work with no cold fingers. I've also ridden in heavy rain and the majority of my gloves are dryer than without the BBHgs. I expected that some moisture would still get to the hands because it's not a completely closed design, but it's a thousand times better than it was. The BBHgs can be adjusted fairly easily which may redirect some of the rain that got to my hands but I haven't figured out the angle yet that I would like them to be.
I didn't find any interference with the controls during operation of the bike even with heavy winter gloves. There's more than enough room in them for hand movement (I have longer hands). I did have some contact between the windscreen and the BBHgs but that was expected seeing as I have an aftermarket windscreen and risers installed. The pro to this product is they are semi-rigid and have some flex so no damage done! The only con so far is that about half the mirror view is taken up. This doesn't present a safety issue for me just an annoyance. I was already looking to change the mirrors (on my FJR) which will extend the view and potentially not be an issue.
I'd like to have given excellent ratings on performance, finish and durability but couldn't due to only having ridden with the BBHgs for a couple of weeks and have not encountered the harsher winter elements as of yet. I'm hopeful that these 3 categories will not be a disappointment once winter sets in and would love to post another review when spring arrives.

Michael B:The paperwork states that they will fit over the aluminum backbone of existing barkbusters, but does not say anything about the full guards. Given the size and shape of these, I would be surprised if they fit.Oct 20, 2014
