Home made wind screen

How do you think this looks. It works but I think it looks kinda janky from front view. I welded up my self.

Well... I like the effort. But just doesn't flow with the shape of the bike in my opinion.

You get 10/10 for improvisation from me.

I don't even want to think about the safety impact <shudder>.

Maybe keep it until the next Mad Max movie comes out.

I will eventually fork out the $200 something Honda wants for the tiny one they offer. This thing creates a huge air pocket. Air flows right over my shoulders and I can feel any air at all from my knees up to the top of my shoulders even around my stomach nothing.

I'd at least round off all the angles to make it a little less military looking

You're right it looks janky to me too but why do you care what we think? If it works well. which it seems to according to you. then I applaud your McGyvering. Way more satisfaction than just off the shelf and you won't see yourself coming down the road any time soon.

Yeah. Really a "Wehrmacht-Krad" with this conning tower. Directly from "Iron Sky".
In earnest: in accidents you will beheading yourself with this neatly made, but dangerous contraption. Better dismount it for security purposes. Or make it shorter with rounded edges.
