I don't ride with the safety nets down (I leave them rolled up), but after some of the wacky weather we've been experiencing, I thought about a way to stay relatively dry on casual rides. I bought a roll of plastic window material of ebay and velcro. I cut the windows to the shape of the nets. Had the velcro sewn on (hard side on the nets, soft side on the plastic. I put a large sheet of cardboard down on a work table. I stapled the nets (one at a time) on to it so it was flat. I put the the plastic over the net, then took a marker and traced the outline of the webbing straps. This gave me the template to cut the window to shape and gave me a guide for where to sew the velcro on to the plastic. I keep the windows rolled up in cardboard shipping tubes that I stow under the roof. If it starts storming, roll down the nets and put the windows up! Tip: Use a sheet of large tissue paper between the windows when you roll them up, so there's no plastic to plastic contact. That will keep them from "whiting out" due to moisture and help prevent scratching.
