sunroof?

PdxMark said:
I have a bike on the way that will include nice aluminum Honsho fenders. I usually transport my bikes in roof racks that clamp to the fork. I can get a roof rack that doesn't use a full-length tray to accommodate the rear of the front fender. My question relates to the upper front lip of the front fender.

I'm concerned that the wind pressure from driving a couple hundred miles at highway speeds could fatigue, or maybe even bend, the upper lip of the front fender. Am I just being paranoid? I can mount the bike backwards, so the rear fender faces forward. But this would put the wind load on the rear fender stays. Is this any better?

Thanks.
If you have a sunroof, you might be able to keep an eye on it. I would try driving a little more slowly at first, then see how it goes.

Would a bike bra cover the fender? That might help.
