I think it's kinda :cooler:, but I hate to think what happens in crosswinds, it might try to fly sideways!:)

I saw one of those a while back and what comes to mind is: Buy a convertible car for pete's sake. If you don't like riding in the elements, a bike, no matter what stripe is not for you.

Hobie......out.

If I could only get the air conditioner to work on my '83I I would be a happy guy here in the state of Illinois. Weeks of 90+ weather, no rain, crops failing(really), and no A/C. The nerve.

In this desert "Sun" that big window would fry you like "Bacon" !!

Plus the huge cross winds may invent a whole new sport, "motorsailing" , but "SilverFox" could use on the rainy UK days !:goofygrin:

But the Pidgeons may view it as a "Target" !!:doh:

Hang gliding springs to mind!!:goofygrin:

First the tall Tulsa windshield then this. Next they will wrap it all the way over and put side curtains on it. Of course if they use side curtains they will have to convert the electronics to Lucas.

It's a pretty day, you are on a ride. No worry for rain, you have your windscreen with an attitude. You approach a bend in the road. It looks fairly soft so you leave the throttle dialed in. The bend turns out to have a decreasing spiral, you lean it over further and further. Just short of scraping metal, you realize you are going to make it. Then along comes this big wind gust and catches your windscreens wee protuberence, you feel your Wing being carried backwards and out of the curve. Traction is suddenly lost as your Wing is lifted sideways, you hear metal screech and feel the first brushes with asphalt along you knee and ankle. As it all slowly comes apart and you gain new perspectives on the world around you, you reall begin to wonder..... ...Was a little rain really that bad?

I didn't think I would like to ride a tricycle either, still don't YET, but most of the time the people you see riding them are people who because of age and related age conditions want to still want to ride in other than a cage.

I seen a GL1500 at a show with that thing on it, a few years back. I thought the ridicule and laughter had made the manufacturers go away and hide their heads in embarrassment after that. Looks like I was wrong.

Maybe this is the ideal thing I need for my travels to work while worrying about hitting a deer because I don't have my deer alerts on the bike. The deer would simply slide up over the top of the bike and hopefully land on all fours to run off to the woods to eat a bigmeal of pancakes and spam.

Whatcha say Silverfox???
