I usually have to have something I am messing with, otherwise I tend to buy something I don't really need. I will probably experiment with coroplast fairings and a rear rack, just to keep me busy if nothing else.

It's my sophomore year, and so far I haven't needed a loan. Hopefully it will continue to go smoothly.
At 55 mph, a 10% drag reduction translates to a 5% increase in fuel economy. At 70mph,a 10% drag reduction translates into a 4% increase -Phil Knox (Aerohead)
