I ran mine in up to 100+ temps all summer and no airflow issues. I suspect if a blockage occurs it will be because something hit it. Not trying to sell anyone on it, but I'm happy with my purchase...

I got some scratches on my plastic is the desert too, and I ordered a kalamata metallic touch up pen which at least makes them less obvious.

I've not had any problems with my OEM guards bending, but the plastics get scuffed up. Just replaced the BMW plastics with Wunderlich.

Mine is switched. When I stop if I want it left on I just press the screen on the GPS when it asks me if I want to leave it on. Much simpler than forgetting to turn it off, at least for me.

I carry both a SPOT and a PLB. SPOT mostly for tracking and letting those who monitor my trip about my progress. The PLB I hope to never use, but would pick it over the SPOT if I did.

Agreed, and if your main goal is to ride at highway speeds a dual sport helmet isn't the best choice by far. For me the highway is a necessary evil to get to places I like to ride. :D

Easier just to remove the visor. It is quieter that way, but I like the visor and am usually on the highway just to get somewhere to ride offroad. So far the Cee Bailey does the trick for me.
