Well said. I really like this fairing and especially the fact that apparently you're not in a cage in some helpless position (it must be scary to drive a recumbent streamliner) but can ride it like a normal motorcycle. You even have your legs at hand in case you stop. I'm aware that it deteriorates drag coefficient (like a really big, open window on a car), but looks safer.
Now, this is the streamliner I'd gladly try.
We only need a better battery pack at the same weight at most, to get a really usable range (like 300 or more miles)
