Air stream on knees

For that spot on your knees that gets all of the air, rain, cold, heat and bugs. I added a 1/8" x 2.5" x 4.5" piece of tinted acrylic, bent it, used double sided tape to install it behind the upper wind wings. It has eliminated 99% of the air stream the hit you in the knees. I'll take it back off and make some more cuts for symmetry but it works excellent. Total cost...$5.00

I went on a 120-mile ride today, I had not installed one on the left side yet. I wanted to give it a test. I was amazed at how much difference it made.

Do you have a different view of this piece you made?

Riding alone can clear your mind, while riding with friends can fill your heart
