    Being 6'2 i'm a tad too big for the Zed...

    The most noticeable downside is when travelling at speed roof down with the icicles forming on the top of my noggin. :(

    I read somewhere about mocking up a wind deflector to lash to the sun visor. has anybody tried this?

    Wonder if you could fashion something out of perspex? I would have thought the key issue is fixing it so the wind pressure doesn't just push it downwards. :-\

    Me and hats don't go well together.

    I've tried them all barring a Stetson, Turban or Fedora.

    At the weekend my daughter insisted I take off my woolly hat as soon as we reached civilisation. =)) :(
