I enjoy riding the bike naked in the summer... wind in my face, bugs in my teeth, you get it. However, when I'm out on the road and the weather forecast goes to shit... I do not like water and crap in my face from a fenderless front tire! Here is my solution... zip ties and throw this little guy on.. works great as an "Insta Fender!!"

That's pretty cool. I use a bandana but I have no rear fender.

I got caught in a fucking MONSOON last night on my way home from work. About 3 miles from home lol.

Bike was running on one cylinder by the time I pulled into the driveway

This is pretty common on bicycles. Just use a piece of an old tube.

I run a bandanna as well and that helps but inevitably there's still shit that comes up off the front tire. If I know it's going to rain I just take my full face with me. I'm ok with getting wet but at least I'm not getting pelted in the face with nasty road grit.

Word to the wise...make sure that ur bandana stays below the top of fork slider! Mine came up over the slider allowing all of that road grit to get traped there, running my fork seals!
I like this idea as it doesn't give a place to hold the grit like a bandana does! Good little piece o tech!
