Has anyone been running in safari mode (rear windows out of soft top) and then flipped the top back into the open (sunrider) position? I have been scared to try it at anything over slow back road speeds.

Not sure how stable the top would be in this setup.

Any experience out there?

Yep, it's fine. Your top is still locked up there until you hit that latch in the back.

I've done it many times and once drove across the state that way.

Tons of people ride in Sunrider mode with soft windows in or out without issue.

This forum has beaten the idea of whether this is a good idea (keeping windows on,) or who would pay damages if it isn't to death.

But that said, what you propose OP is not only ok, I think it's what the owner's manual says you should do, which is essentially "Safari" the top first, then "Sunrider" it.
