Ok so I went the DIY tail tidy route, and love it! That is until I got caught in the rain. The rain seems to come off the back tire and hit me right above the back pockets on my jeans. So what I plan on doing is fabbing up a piece of aluminum that will bolt to the holes on the plate and provide protection on days where the chance of rain is iffy. My question is how far down and how wide should it be made. Has anyone else attempted anything like this???
