Fun with Patents: The Knee Air Deflector
According to Motorbiker, the patent was filed in 2008 and got some upgrades the next year. Taking a look at the pictures we've not only failed to see any trace of a truly functional upgrade, but laughed once more, only this time harder.
While Jerry's idea starts off from a real problem, wind resistance when riding on unfaired bikes, he fails to comply to the lays of physics and imagines his own version of an air stream, in complete disdain of what is common-sense fluid dynamics.
And since it looks like Jerry H Biglake has just discovered a new way air travels around a motorcycle, what better occasion to invent a deflector for this stream, so conveniently reshaped by yet unknown forces...
By all means, please try and imagine how would you look like wearing Jerry's
