Why does this remind me of janvos39 and his Suzuki Burgman modification?

Very cool. Added a link directly to the builder's site in post 1.

I was trying to remember what thread I had seen this posted in before.

Oh yeah: it's in theycallmebryan's Ninja 250 streamlining thread: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...tml#post148131

It was april last year that I came up with this:

Found nice example of Dutch project with 125 cc bike
Allert

Since than it was also linked by Theycallmeebryan and also Craig Vetter who I did sent this link.
I think this guy is ahead of us in implementing good ideas to come to the fantastic FE.
Very interesting to follow his improvements.

Maybe it can be a sticky article in this motorcycle/scooter catagory????

MetroMPG 01-25-2010 04:46 PM

Good idea, Jan. I'll sticky it now.

Also: I've written a blog piece about Allert's project.

214 mpg with DIY aerodynamic fairings on Honda 125cc motorbike | Hypermiling, Fuel Economy, and EcoModding News - EcoModder.com

I wrote to him to ask permission to post his photos, and he wrote back saying:

Quote:

I like to read the EcoModder website and I would be happy if you write anarticle about my Honda project on that site.
He also says he'll be posting new photos on his site tomorrow.
I suggested that he might want to look at the MPGuino to add an MPG gauge to his bike, since his Honda has fuel injection:

Quote:

I know about the MPGuino, I've bought and assembled it but do not have it operational on the bike yet.

Keep working on that EcoModder website, it is much appreciated.
That's very cool. I bet he's seen your Suzuki as well, Jan.
