    Cornshield Prototype Number 3

    Those on the forum who already know me are aware of the fact that I like to go for long rides on the open road cruising at 70 mph and above, so . . . . .

    I decided to design and built the "uber" wind-shield for the open road conditions . . .

    I started with this project yesterday and I went for my first test ride this morning and everything went according to plan, this thing is working!!!!

    After a lot of cutting and bending this is the final product AND if I want to go and do some trail-riding it takes me less than 2 minutes to remove it



    The only thing that I still have to do is to paint it.





    It all started with a plastic dustbin that I bought from a local store

    Cool, functional, and not much money. It looks like Batman's cape upside down. Remove it for a trail, hang it on your back and you'll look like the caped crusader going through the wilderness.

    I hope its not to firmly attached. I would hate to see you get that in the throat in the event of an accident.

    Perhaps for perception of greater safety could one radius the corners a bit and cover edges with some form of welting to lessen sharp edges? Certainly a matching "cape" behind could cover some of your gear on next years world tour.

    Maybe for safties sake round those sharp sharp pointed bat corners on the top and then get some of that snap on door protector stuff and put it on the top edge. I really like following your adventures and would hate it all to end wit a beheading or cut juggler vein. It looks cool for sure. Nice work! (only speaking up cause I do care)

    Ok. I see we're on the same page, never saw yours as I started typing as soon as I saw the first post.

    Woohoo!!!!

    After searching for many hours on ebay and Amazon I was able to find a couple of interesting Batman costumes complete with capes and masks to compliment my new Wind Shield or should I say Bat-Shield . . .

    Wonder if Batman ever got his cowl DOT approved?
