I have to ask . I am not totally serous . But it is a serous question regarding aero clothing like speed humps on the back side to smooth out the air around the helmet.

What about the back side . IS the Legendary BMW rider Ernst Henne's Butt Cone legal for land speed racing. Or is it unsafe or too funny looking to ride with.

My understanding is that a "speed hump" is only SCTA legal in the APS classes, if you run without the bodywork, the "hump" has to come off.
Great picture! grin

I'm guessing that you're asking about the neck support hump at the top of the shoulders. It seems legal in all classes at ECTA. I think all the leathers I've seen Greg Neal use (and others) have one and still run in production classes.

NOPE ..I am asking about the BUTT CONE . You are not truly committed to speed  till you are willing to walk around the pit with a road cone strapped to you rear end

You can see it in this video. at 59 sec.

what kind of materials would you use and how would you keep it from compounding your injuries if you happen to fall off?

That is why I hope it is not allowed in any class. But a rubber cone and a bungee cord comes to mind.

I'm a car guy but this is a valid point. What about soft foam and velcro? The velcro on the on the suite side could be sewn in foam bonded to velcro on the other side. My imagination is running wild with all these crazy shapes people would be wearing...  rolleyes

If you were to have the "butt cone" surgical implant procedure, it would be difficult to be successfully protested on the shape of your a88.  Be a trend setter!     vic

SSS, it seems those who are writing on this thread may have their heads heads up the butt where the sun don't shine and therefore don't need any aero strap on's. One never knows what the advantages would be cause they can't see which direction they are going anyway. Sorta like the two wheel hero rider in Vegas that can't figure why the slinky don't work on the up escalator. I better go to the garage and do something before I go nuts.
