Got ya thinking on that lol Didn't say it wouldn't work, it won't go down.

You got me think all right. Maybe add the bird that dips its beak in a glass of water and you would be very close to perpetual motion.

Go ahead Jon now you can move the thread to the joke section. undecided

Nah, that'd be too easy.  I think I'll let this thread meander and wobble and pretty soon it'll be talking about weird stuff -- like aerodynamic motorcycle clothing, of all things!

I've never ran with a "butt cone", but my leathers do give me a serious "man toe". I haven't seen any mph gains from it, but the locals do stare.  shocked

Oct,
       The part that worries me is, that this thread is not old enough for you to have fabricated those "items" as a joke, which (I can only assume) means you've already been thinking about this...

It appears that Lars is combining the aero clothing and exhaust thrust concepts.

If I saw a Butt Cone on a racer in front of me I would just hope that it would remain the "Cone of Silence".

if you had a break away butt cone would you need a safety teather attached? Does the teather connect to the bike or the rider?
