    I installed my SOR Safari mesh bikini top recently. Something you can use year around here in SoCal :)

    I dig getting 80% of the sun’s heat and UV rays covered, but still being able to look up and see out the top. It is the best of both worlds of having a bikini top and not having a top. Seems to be nice made and solid quality. pulls tight and not sloppy and loose.

    FWIW, they claim you MUST have their additional Tiger Channel at $27, but I installed into a round older style channel just fine (just like my old one was) and have had no issues. I have even had it at freeway speeds.

    You suck.

    It's like 4° with 15 to 20 MPH winds and scattered snow. :flipoff2:

    I don't particularly like mine when it is shut. It flaps way to much on the mesh.

    EDIT: Oophs, the pic didn't load. I have the one with the mesh insert

    Otherwise, it works fine on the highway open, as it does "bubble" up. But hey, I wasn't running a tap at all last weekend

    This is the first winter the 40 has spent inside in 12 years.

    BTW I was exaggerating the temp, the high today was around 40° the wind chill just made it feel like 4°
