Hand guard road test

Haha so its real cold here in NYC. (had to jump start the hawk)

Soo, got on the highway and as I sped up I lost a handguard! It was around 23*F so I continued 2 exits at about 70mph and did a full test of wind blocked vs wind full force.

Conclusion: It is WAY colder riding without a still air pocket for your hands. I can wear summer gloves into the 40s with the guards.

Oh and I did double back and retrieve the wayward hand guard at slight peril.
