    Cheap fix to keep the elements away from you and the bikes critical mechanical parts.

    Excellent for Offroad, Dirt, Mud, and Snow riding.

    Instructions:
    Cut to fit plastic container, I used an old dish detergent container and yogurt container
    Zip-tie to hold in place
    can be painted for aesthetics.

    Cool idea... You can do the same with some plastic sheet but the cut up dish soap bottle also gives it a good "redneck engineering" quality to it... I like it.

    if it works and you like it that is all that matters, being a country fella like myself who has been known to redneck many things, I agree with Dave..

    I like it....

    Good way to use your bike to re-purpose something that would normally end up in the trash.

    im just amazed at how committed you fellas are up there in the far North of where im at here in central Texas, ya'll ride in the snow and other extreme conditions that most of us down here dont even like to see out the window let alone go out in it and ride a motorized bike...lol..!

    I dont mind cold that much when i have a chance to acclimate to it a little, problem here is that it can be teens or 20's one dayand then 70 the next, that just rips a fella up and makes the cold seem twice as bad.

    ride safe whatever you do 66 and enjoy your bike and your mods.... you're having fun and that is all that matters.

    We have 2 season up here in the Great White North (GWN); Winter and Summer. As soon as it starts to get cold it really dips, and as soon as it gets warm, mind you pretty late in the year it gets nice and hot and stays!
    So we still have to go about our days 365 days a year. I enjoy MBing so much that many days, not even weather permitting id rather leave the car at home and Ride along in the MBike.

    Only when it dips below -20C (-4F) is when there is no safe way to be outside for more than a few minutes at a time, and I forget about riding!

    Thank you MapBike.
    Ride safe as well, and enjoy the southern Texas Climate!

    We have some friends that just moved to Alaska, my wife lived there before we met and now she's talking about maybe wanting to move back up there some day... I guess if we were to do that, I'll get a taste of the really cold weather, I'm gonna fight against moving to Alaska though, Id rather go somewhere North a little but not quite that far North..LOL!

    Safe riding wishes right back atcha buddy

    I'd love to Visit Alaska but not so sure I'd like to live there when it's dark for 6 months then 6 months of daylight... The furthest north I've visited was some family I got in North Dakota up close to the Canada border. I remember we were out in the street tossing the football playing catch and someone asked what time it was, I remember saying it must be around 8:30 or so beacuse the sun was just starting to go down when one of my second cousins had to correct me telling me it was 11:30... then proceeded to tell me that it don't really get dark until almost midnight up there in July. They also told me in the winter it was totally dark by 4:00 PM, but in the summer it stays daylight up to about 11:45 or so then the sun comes up in the morning around 4...

    i want to go up there to Anchorage and visit the folks at Wild West Guns, my wife lived in Fairbanks so i know we'll have to go up there also, im not sure if I want to live there or not though, one good thing is there are no property taxes there so you actually own your land instead of renting it from government like we do in the lower 48 where we only own it as long as we're willing to pay taxes on it.

    Map- We'd love to have you in the the Oro y Plata State.
    Google:confused: I'd guess, the state Constitution.
    She'd get mountains, streams and snow, you'd get big skys, forests and summers.
    Win / win, my friend. And Canadia is just up the road a bit. :)

    Ive actually thought about Montana myself, big wide open country with a lot of space similar to what we have here in Texas, we have harsher summers and y'all have harsher winters and probably more rain which we have very little of down here for many years now, dont know that I could get the wife to live there, but that might be a good happy medium for me for sure.

    and thanks for the invite.

    God knows I would love to ride year round. 4ft roadside snow banks here where I'm at right now. I did 9 mnths last year and 8 mnths this year. Depends what happens weather wise after Thanksgiving and how soon april really gets to my area in Maine. Great Idea on the fenders 66! Actually do fender extensions like ye ole mud flaps.
