Bugs are terrible. I live near a bunch of fields, and when the bugs are in their mating seasons it's IMPOSSIBLE to ride (and really, really gross).

I got caught in a light rain storm today on the way home and forgot my sun glasses from work. Holy cow it was zero visibility. Mainly because I refused to slow down and wanted to beat the storm to the house.

JC Whitney catalog has some motorcycle windshields that can fit some bicycles and mabs. I think a windshield on a bicycle would likely be a major headache regarding handling of the machine on the road and putting into storage, but if you've got a strong motor and are just getting killed by bugs, this might be your answer. $85

At 14x14 in, right about your chest area, it might not actually be that bad. Plus it can be removed (stalks can come out of the clips).

You can get some ATV goggles and helmet for less, though, and add or delete equipment as needed for weather and bugs.

Well, the brake caliper bracket arrived but no brake arm. I got a PM at eBay, the guy said he can't locate the part he sold me, asked if he could substitute another in it's place. It looked identical so I said ok. Still no notification of shipping...

Looks like it'a time to actually start working on the bike. I'll have another go at getting photo's to DL
