Question Re: Shield to block cold air off feet

I'm beginning to think that my CRS has gone into overdrive, but didn't someone make some type of plastic shield or guard that would block more of the cold air off of your feet?

Thanks

Found it. The guy's name was Greg Wagner, out of St. Louis. He went by ou812 on the old site. Try emailing him at [email protected].

I was at the Cycle shop Saturday with a friend who was looking at Goldwing stuff. They had the "wings" (air deflectors) in different sizes that you can mount just about anywhere. They are adjustable and work well.

If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans

Wink Re: Info

Ken, Ken, James, and Jerry:

I've gotten a reply from Greg and he still makes the cold air shields and he handles several more items. I've inquired as to the expense of the cold air shields and will most likely purchase a set. Once I get some more info I will let you know.

Thanks for the links, it sure is appreciated.

Do keep us informed, John. As my toes began to get wet and thus cold on a recent ride, I found myself thinking about these guards again.

Wink Cold air shields

Ken and any other interested:

I ordered a set of the cold air shields from Greg Wagner, cost $56.50 including shipping. You can reach Greg at "[email protected]". Once they arrive, I'll install, check them out, and let you know my thoughts.

Right now, anything would be an improvement. That is what gets cold first and once they are cold, there is no letup, only get colder. I'm hoping the shields provide enough protection that Gerbing socks are not needed. Most of my riding is not the all day many do, thus I can stand some cold for those shorter times. Now if I start riding more in the colder weather, then Gerbings will be in order.

Foot Position

I've found that shifting the feet backwards where the ball of the feet rests on the pegs takes advantage of the warm airstream coming off the engine... moving the legs in/out .

This requires more bend in the knees, but is a fair trade-off for a temporary change of position.

Smile Pics

Jerry and all others:

I've posted the pics Greg sent me. One can be seen at:
http://www.bmwlt.com/gallery/files/5...rleftfront.jpg

Search for pics uploaded by me to see the rest.

Now as for cold feet in GA, well I've seen temps down to single digits, that is cold in about anybody's book. As for St. Pete, just ship some of that warmer air up here in Jan/Feb. :-) Maybe I do need to move further south, naw, roads are too straight. lol

Hmm. Looks exactly like the pics above from Kevin's site. Interesting.

My concern is that little bump on the bottom of the fairing just in front of the guards. The one that is already ground away on my bike. I'd hate to see what these guards will look like after a few fun roads.

Ken...you really really REALLY need to reconsider buying a GT. Your feet get 2 to 3 times the wind/rain on a GT. You poor poor dear. I just don't think you'll be able to handle it.

Not all of us stay in the same state, Joe. Some of us ride more than one tank at a time. You should try it someday.

Oh, I did find a good deal on an '06 Blue GT, but they said I'd have to wear a "Joe" name tag while riding it, so I passed. I just didn't think I could maintain the proper smiling condescension for mile after mile.

Joe:

I know, just don't seem possible this far south. But 35 degrees, rain, and 75 mph for 3 plus hours does not spell warm feet. Now my daughter lives in FL, and she saw 17 degrees year before the last. Course that is nothing like the temps on Thunder Bay, but little is.
