I found this on the DML.
This guy rigged those improvised hand guards for a 240 mile ride in the low 40's.  Roll Eyes
 sTD and I rode in the low 20's for 450 miles next time I'll try this

they also mentioned that the multistrada hand guards fit the monster and that Acerbis makes some that fit too.... might even look less ghetto then ammonia jugs.  I don't know if they make them in carbon fiber but if they do, maybe we just found the perfect Christmas gift for Mario

great to see that idea...we used to bolt those up to our barkbusters when it got cold...

MSR (Malcolm Smith Racing) makes some covers that go over the controls.

look there under controls and D-flector Shields cost was around 23 bucks...don't know the current cost

ciao,

We used to use jugs like that on our RC race trucks. I never would have thought about using them for hand deflectors. Wicked smart

The guys name is James, he lives close to me. I rode with him this year and we both almost got friggin smeared head on by a truck as we were making some risky passes out in western Mass. We were riding in a tight high speed group and were third and fourth respectively. I was on his ass as he decided to blast the line of cages in the twisties on a hard left handed sweeper, he changed his mind 1/2 way through  and a truck sandwiched  us between a mini van as we were going about 90. I got on the binders hard as I was about 10 inches from his rear tire and zipped back behind the van and gave him room to do the same.

I swear I could feel the wind from the trucks mirror as it passed me ( We were both on the center line at that point). I really became quite fond on the radials after that!

Back to the point, James is a great guy, very high caliber, he just had a nasty get off at NHIS prior to his inventive hand warmer creation

I thought it was a pretty cool idea!! My hands get so cold riding in the Indiana winter weather.  Improvise and overcome right?
