All legal I think- varies size/speed/height. Just plain aircraft "skin" in most cases. No problem with pedal cars in CA., but I had to gear down to 20 mph on the VM and had to register the City_EL because it 'ain't a golf cart!

Are the shells going to be available for sale?

He has the mold ready to go why not make more and show the world what could be done?

I'd think any television reporter who saw one rolling down a street would want to interview the driver for the evening news.

Not a motorcycle; but I have a motor, yet over 5 years now and no one has interviewed me (fantastic invisibility mod, I guess).

I wonder if Allert has performed any other mods besides aerodynamics/instrumentation.

Clutch-mounted injector kill switch? P&G/DWB? LED indicators? What's his tire pressure at? The curious mind wants to know!

Closest thing going in US right now is a 125cc Kawasaki Eliminator and the Yamaha Rifle fairing through Craig Vetter.

Recent update shows that Allert has had his mileage above 220mpg. No new mods, but he was riding with another stock Innova that got 130mpg on the same trip. JJ

He'll probably be good for over 250 mpg once he cleans up the wheels, puts mirrors inboard, adds turtledeck and teardrop canopy, etc.. More water to be drawn from this well.

Why did he have to cut the back end of the fairing off so abruptly? If he was going to go though all that trouble, why not extend it more to the back
