    Welcome Crow18, so you are trying to convince us that the hockey stick is not for dealing with road rage.

    The sticks are so securely bungied that it would be easier for me to unzip the bag and fling a skate at someone. It does seem to deter tailgaters, however.

    New paint

    My Krauser fairing is made from Unobtainium, so I had to have it completely reglassed to make it useable. Then, since I was having it painted, I decided it was pretty cheap (incrementally) to add a custom graphic.

    I'm pretty pleased with it, and the shop did a show-quality finish on it, but I will continue to ride this bike, and just let the paint suffer. The fairing does make the rest of the paint look shabby though.

    I had to take this picture while it still looked pretty.

    K-heat

    Hey, seeing all these K1 bikes (and probably the K100LTs also) makes me ask a question:

    On my K100, how much can I wisely block off the heat behind the fairing and in front of my legs without causing problems? The K1 pictures make it look like the fairing is well sealed to the tank and engine, so that would sure take some heat off me.

    I have a K1 and have owned a K100RT so know something about HEAT. The heat transfer on the K1 is much different from the K100RT in that your legs and upper body do not get cooked, but there is a lot of heat that comes from down low across you feet and lower legs. At highway speeds it's not too bad, but around town it builds up and then really gets your attention when you get on the open road until the heat "trapped" under the fairing gets a chance to purge. My take on this is you shouldn't do a lot of low speed running with the K1 because it seems to collect more heat under the body work than seems like a good idea.

    On the K100RT the heat would come up from just below the tank and get sucked up past my legs and onto my torso because of the negative pressure behind the fairing. On a hot day it was an oven. I got a set of Kguard Heat Shields which helped quite a bit. They fill in the gap just behind the fairing lowers and force the heat to pass behind them and exit behind your legs. You still don't get a lot of fresh air due to the size of the fairing, but at least the convection oven effect is greatly reduced. The web site for the company that makes these is still there, but it's marked that they are closed for business right now: http://hometown.aol.com/bmwkguard/ You might also find some for sale by searching the lists.
