    Funky as it sounds a dash cover?

    Maybe a wind buffer.
    Or something to keep the windshield and plastic from rubbing each other.

    Maybe a mask to keep the wind from entering in the gap between the bike and the shield?
    I am not young enough to know everything!

    You don't have to have the last word to win the argument!

    Definitely not OEM.

    But I'd guess one of 2 things:
    1) holds some kind of wind deflector to reduce airflow under windshield (but which would increase buffeting around helmet/torso)
    2) an attempt at initiating turbulence in that gap to either reduce whistling noise or to reduce buffeting slightly of air flowing through that gap.

    They are part of a 2 piece windshield system from Aeroflow. They
    hold a small second air deflector below the main shield.

    ^^^
    Bingo! I had one of the Aeroflow windscreens and as Handyman posted, that velcro holds a second smaller air deflector in place. Works very well.

    Anyone got a picture of the Aeroflow second shield that was there?

    If you look at the photograph it shows it's a Cee Bailey's windshield same as the one i have on my bike, written at the bottom. I think most likely it's been for a dash protector of some kind.
