I just returned from a trip to Paris. It's been a while since I visited and I was amazed to see that almost every scooter and quite a few motorcycles had aprons that cover the riders legs. There were more than a few big beemers (RT's, LT's) with the as well. If you've never seen these check out http://www.bagster.com/en/showroom_liste.php?id_temp=19 and http://www.tucanourbano.it/main/termoscud.aspx
Anyone know why these haven't caught on in the US? I think it's a brilliant idea... but not so much that I'm willing to start the trend!
