I have the chilohowees engine guards, I love them , I got them with a pocket on each, Just make sure if you get them from them that you tell them what type of engine guard you have, they have a great guarantee also and they are very well made.

I've had the Sagebrush chaps for a few years and they do the job. Easy to install and the owner is super easy to work with. He shipped them before he ever got my check.

I've heard good things about the Airlite and Chilowhee; never heard of the Sagebrush though. But if Classic says they're good, I guess they are too!

On the second item, the tank bra: are you talking about the one that covers the back 1/3 - 1/2 of the tank from the seat forward, or the one that comes down like a tuxedo straight down the middle of the top of the tank? I'd like to find the former, if someone makes it for my 06 Nad.

If you find a place that sells the 1/3 tank bra, please let me know too. Been looking for one for a while now with no luck. Thanks!

Yep, for the scuffs your legs/knee's are leaving on the sides of the tank?

(me, too!)

Maybe someone will hear us and decide, "hey, there's a market for that..."

Thanks for the replies. I like the Airlites but my wife doesn't because it will cover up my radiator cover and I do like the looks of the Sagebrush and Chilowhees a little better because of the studs. Cost wise, they are about the same. The bra that I'm talking about is the one that comes down the center of the tank. Both Sage and Chilowhee are similar as well......just don't know if one is any "better" than the other....
This is the SageBrush design..

Is this the tank bra you are looking for?

Anyhow, back to the main subject. I have the Airlites and they work well for me. Especially here in the wet Pacific Northwest.

I have the Airlites...Have had them about a month.
They serve the purpose really well and the fit is excellant.
Airlite was reccomended to me by someone else on this site.

I like em...........

I have the Sagebrush engine guard chaps for my Nomad and like them very much. They are small enough to leave in the bags (they really help if you get caught in the rain) and are easy to put on and remove...probably takes 1 minute. I did find that I could only use them if the temperature is under 60F (not often here in Florida....it is 80F today!) because my feet get too hot. They are really nice on a cool morning or in the rain. ED

Great thread! I've been considering a set of these, think I'm leaning airlite just b/c of the price, $80 with the shipping vs. 134 w/o shipping for the chilo's. Also think the 1 piece will be more "flap" resistant given that it is continuous across the front of the bike.

I agree that the price is right on the Airlites but I really think the Sage or Chilhowees would look better on my bike. Was hoping someone who had tried both would chime in on quality issues, etc.
