Only SSD and I. He came over and we called it off due to the chance of getting blown off the road or being hit with flying debris. Blizzard And to top it off Dayboro was hit with a mini quake.  bounce

The day was not a total loss we did some reconstructive surgery on SSD's barge.

Did yous happen to notice if turning upside down the panel around the forks results in air scoops which might reduce the heat problem? And if there are panels above the side vents preventing heat from getting to the knee vents?

A while a go I offered to look at adding baffles as they appear to be mostly absent. SSD wasn't overly fussed so we have left it. The repairs we undertook were to the inner panel under the windscreen which had some significant cracks and warping. We heated up the warped panel and we aligned it with welding gloves on. We tried Bondic, 5 minute Araldite, and 2 different brands of super glue. None of them would hold so I resorted to deck tape. The deck tape is reasonably stiff and unyielding until heated. The panel has compound curves and with a bit of heat from the heat gun the deck tape easily conforms. SSD is now a fan of deck tape. After he left I realised that I have a bottle of blue plumbers glue that may have worked.
Regards Martin.
