About 16 years ago, I made a composite foam/fiberglass full coverage motorcycle fairing.

At the time, Craig Vetter was in full swing with his WindJammer fairings, which weighed close to 40 lbs.

My foam/fiberglass model, which actually covered more of the bike, including riders legs, weighed only 13 lbs.

The tail extension on the Insight should weigh less than 30 lbs.
