Yeah, in a place like Dallas, what you want is AC during the day, and the
top goes down when the sun does...
Sunscreen on the ears is recommended, anyway. And are you sure it's the cap,
and not the backblast, that makes your ears stick out? I suppose if you're
going fast enough, nobody is going to see your ears...
I have noticed folks wearing wide-brimmed hats, with chin straps,
cowboy-style. Though I would think the flapping would drive one bonkers --
the brim of my ball cap vibrates like crazy as it is. My problem is that due
to height and leg length, my head is positioned entirely out of the small
less-turbulent area behind the windshield, and into the wind vortex. For
this reason I rather doubt a rear windblocker would help, unless it was
considerably taller than the windscreen.
Hey, it's all part of the fun...

it's the primer red one with chrome wires
