I don't...unless the weather allows me to be doorless for a couple days straight. If you have full doors, the surrounds do provide some lateral support when closing the door.

I too enjoy the freedom of not having all that wrapped around me. Long trips at high speeds like the Interstate are rough on this ole body with all of removed.

But I still enjoy the feeling and driving without the top up and doors on is as close to biking it as you're gonna get!

Sometimes I'll take mine off. Depends, though. Like was mentioned, if the weather permits for at least a few days, then yea I take them off.

I have half doors and take the surrounds off when I go topless, it only takes another minute or two to get them off, so why not? That's why I made sure I got the half doors, for when the doors are on, you can still take off the surrounds and it feels much more open.

i only remove them when i am also taking the doors off. and i've had troubles with a little bit of water leaking back inside after removing the door surrounds. Sad the more I take them off the more they seem to rattle and they leak a little (usually only on the highway speeds & while raining) unless I goo up the little crack where the door surrounds fold for storage.

Is a Bikini good enough to keep rain off the dash/electrical instriments in the event of a summer rain, etc?

I only have a hard top and a bikini, and at least 6 months of the year I go completly topless w/out doors and will go weeks at a time w/o putting it in the garage. My dash has seen more water then a fish's back side and everything works just fine (I probably wouldn't try it if I had carpet or cloth seats though).

Go ahead and take them off. Just be careful not to lose those little rubber thingies (called "muckets" I think) that sit between the surround and the body.

I dont see the point in pulling the surrounds, I only take them off 3 months out of the year when my hard top goes on with hard doors. In the summer I run full soft doors and a soft top, which are both off most of the time, unless its going to rain or be really cold.
