Promoting recumbent bicycling via your vehicle?

Just saw a post at the local South Florida (SFRR) Yahoo talk group, by my
GOOD Friend Jose, with a rather interesting idea on how to further promote
recumbent cycling. See picture at: http://tinyurl.com/2tfoz
SO my inquiring question here is, does anyone else (Other than maybe bicycle
shops via their work vehicle) use their vehicle for such purposes? (Perhaps
a photo to see?)

Psssst Andy. The bumper URL must have been bumped off the site. The sticker one works.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but a friend of mine owns a NYC bicycle messenger company, and
they use some recumbents alongside their regular bikes. They have a few BikeE's, a few EZ-1's, a
pair of EZ-3's and a Lightfoot cargo trike.

Anyway, the guy created some bodysocks advertising his business, and he lends them out to his
friends. So sometimes there will be up to five of us riding around the city on our rolling
billboards.

See http://allgoodnamesrtaken.com/10-25-03/

Notice that both his and his wife's bikes also advertises the NYC Bicycle Show -

Ps: And yes, those *are* our vehicles.

I'm undecided between that and Freddy's Stiletto carbon fairing. Both are about the same price
range. The Rotator *seems* more aero, and allows me to use a longer bodysock thus completly covering
my legs and feet, but is heavier, I would have to replace my handlebars(1) and improvise some kind
of mounting system. The Stiletto's is lighter, fits my current setup without any modifications, has
that bubble to help push some wind away from my face, and the green stripe on the front of it is
exactly the same color as my favorite bodysock.

Don't you wish all of life's predicaments were like that? Great fairing, or great fairing?
Hummmm..... ;)

(1) - My bike's handlebar has a set of aerobars prongs brazed on it that wouldn't fit behind the
flat section of your fairing - You can see them pretty clearly on this image - http://allgoodnamesrtaken.com/10-25-
03/Joao1.jpg and this other image shows how they would stick past the fairing - http://allgoodnamesrtaken.com/10-25-
03/Fairings_compared_2.jpg - and that is why I would have to replace them.

Cheers
