    Nice security system. You could of left it running w/a full tank of gas.

    Did you need someone to cover your back going in there?

    Or was it the plan to uncover it?

    It's a type of bubble wrap insulation(1/4"?) they sell at Lowes, Home Depot that has Aluminum foil on each side.

    I used some years ago in the roof of a van.

    How is it attached to the hand guard?

    Ingenious! You did't say how it works though. Looks like it would almost be as good as hippohands without the bulk or expense!

    Yes, its that foiled bubble wrap. Its attached with those push rivets that you can get from the autoparts store. These are old pictures, on the throttle side a little duck tape corrected the big gap and I tuck in some holofill insulation to hold more dead air.

    Works great, summer gloves all winter (those are heated grips in there as well). Somewhat waterproof, and the material is stiff enough to hold the opening open. Less bulky than hippos and cost is around $5 bucks in supplies. :deal

    I've got heated grips on the to do list here soon. Do you mind if I steal your idea?

    I think I still have some of that foil bubble wrap in the garage somewhere. I may have to go look for it. :D
