Driving around with the top down is one of the last bastions of free spirit I seem to get these days due to our digital world. That, and cruising out of the inlet and into the ocean in a boat on a beautiful sunny day.
I leave mine in all the time unless I need the back seat for a passenger. The top will go up even if the windscreen is in it's "up" position, and you can just push it down (it's hinged) so it doesn't impair rear-view vision.

Probably one of my most appreciated $300 accessories that I originally thought was way overpriced and not worth it. Everyone who doesn't use/have seem to be saying they don't have one because they like the "open" feel; you don't lose the open feel, you don't lose the wind and the smells and the sounds. It just reduces the back breeze to the point you don't even notice anything but the open sky (at speeds under 40). and at speeds over 40, it's composed enough that you aren't fatigued by wind noise/feel after a 6 hours highway trip.
