And so it was time for the first ride home:



Much more smoother and enjoyable, it's hard to tell from only 1 trip but the first guesstimate is that it saves about 10-20%.

Thanks. So far the extra range is still about 20%, at this moment my Super Charger is being installed in a huge peli case to go on the back. Two weeks and I can finally start really touring with it!

Recently I mounted the rain guard from Zero: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLZ..._bq2tSdJ_a-0eg



And I'm pondering about what it does from an aerodynamic standpoint. On the on hand it adds a bit of drag due to extra frontal area, on the other hand most of it is behind the riders legs anyway and it could combat vortexes that come from the rear wheel?

Update: Still riding around happily, managed to do 800+ km in one day yesterday.

Can't help noticing that Nissan Leafs have these thingies in front of their windscreen. I assume they are there for aerodynamic reasons, might it be worth it to slap a couple of those shapes on the top of my screen?

They might be vortex generators of some sort, or fake VG's so customers would think a lot of research went into optimizing the air flow in that area.
My best guess is that the bulges are there to make the panendermic semi-boloid slots underneath function without hindrance.

Too bad I have my turboencabulator on the rear side of the bike in that case...
