Foot wind deflector

A couple of weeks ago there was a post for foot wind deflectors. I lost the e-mail address does anyone remember the name and address of the manufacture?

When my toes get too cold I move my feet under the bike and point the tip of my toes inward. You catch a nice heat blast under the engine. Let your boots roast for a few mins and put you feet back on the pegs. Your toes will stay warm for 30 mins or more.

I tape the lower tupperware side vents with clear plastic tape so that the air that is forced along the engine comes out on my toes.

Jim, you're going to have to show me this maneuver some time. I tried it today on the way home. Don't know if my ankles bend differently than yours or what, but I couldn't make it work. Sounds intriguing, and an easy to keep toes toasty. (also sounds like what Honda did on their '06 model's Comfort Package; in addition to heated seats and grips, they have a lever that opens a door in front of the foot pegs; heat from the engine is ducted through this opening to your toes. My friend with an '06 Wing says it works well.)
