I saw this awhile back and was wondering if anyone else has made a set of tank air deflectors. These photos are from the other forum in this post:

http://11109.rapidforum.com/topic=104077032688




I suppose they could help with cold weather riding, and possible turbulence. Personally I'm just seeing if its possible to keep air from running up my thighs when its real cold or if I'll need to go another route. What are everyone else thoughts and opinions? Ugly? Functional? Bad idea? Good idea?

thanks
eric

ps: If you have please mention the materials you used and why.

During a cold trip ,i thought the something similar but more like leg protecyion,i have stock suzuki windshield and it protects my upper body pretty good.
i think these extensions are ugly ,good idea but i looks like doesnt belong there.Some flap design on windshield may work better and looks good.
Maybe because its color i didnt like the way it looks.

Those look a lot like "Baker Air Wings" a wind control product I have on my Honda Valkyrie. A GREAT product BTW....very functional.

I have thought about longer trips on the Strom and these look like something I would want for longer trips...a way to reduce buffeting and fatigue and wind noise.

Thanks,

If I could get some weather protection for my body and legs, the Strom would be the best sport tourer I have ever ridden (it is now for cool to hot dry weather). Baker Wings with lowers might do it. Who cares how it looks if it keeps you warm and dry?

Too bad you could not bring somthing off the crash bars and try to capture some of the engine heat. My legs need some help.

Even though I love my 650, it offers no 'winter leg protection'.

Last winter, I rode my Burgman 400 scooter all winter (no mean feat here in PA), 'cause it had nice lower fairings to protect my legs from the cold. Not so the V-Strom.

If someone would come up with commercially available fairings like the photos above, I'd buy them in a minute.
