Sunday afternoon, Don worked again with setting up his "body sock" on his 2 wheeled recumbent bike. (you can see the back frame on the rear of his bike)
Lonny came over to carry a 50# bag of laying mash for the chickens and a bale of wood shavings from our car to the chicken coop area for me. I was being a baby and didn't want to put the extra weight/pressure on my knees (both the replacement and the "bad" knee), so he was kind enough to do it for me.
Don had his trike out as well (planning to go for a ride a little later in the afternoon) and suggested to Lonny that he take a test ride on it. Unfortunately, Lonny's legs are a bit too long for the trike (and it is not easy to adjust that component), but he was able to cruise up and down the street somewhat satisfactorily.
In my opinion....a good shot of Lonny (I took the photo). :)
Sunday's job was to attach the Velcro tape to the fairing (windshield), which in turn, attaches to the Velcro that is sewn on the front of the body sock. In this photo, Don is getting the body sock in position so that he could pull it forward to see exactly where/how the Velcro should be attached on the fairing.
Unfortunately, it is mostly guesswork, since no instructions were included. Photos of how it is to look, yes, but nothing definite in where and how it is fully attached, etc.
An example of the attached body sock.......
In this photo, you can barely see the slit where Don's head will emerge from the body sock. It also has a zipper which will allow him to snug it up closer to his neck.
The body sock will be very taunt when attached. Don achieved his goal of attaching the Velcro on the fairing, but it needed to "set" for at least 24 hours, so the final installment of the body sock will take place (I'm "assuming") this coming weekend. Of course, it WILL be documented. ;)
