That's way too clean you need to get out more ;-)

Any details of those hand guards?

Mine looked that clean just a month or so ago when I got it, and now it looks like its been in a fight with a gritter.  :008:

Bike is surprisingly capable in very heavy rain with no signs of wanting to give up. Hidden plugs under the tank combined with a tall screen keeping the most of the bad weather away from the controls makes for an easy ride.

Have to keep brushing away the road salt with a paintbrush dipped in water after most rides to prevent corrosion (long-term rather than short-term) around the swingarm / huger / rear shock area but seems more protected than others bikes I've had.

+1 on the hand-guard link (or brand name). Struggling to find a hand guard company that cater for the weighted bar end setup.

Lower fairings look nice but I opted for engine bars instead (realise yours came with them). Plenty of mods available. I'd recommend Oxford heated grips as a must have.

The hand guards came with the bike, I have absolutely no idea of the make... I will take one off and see what I can find, they are however, bloody excellent.

Bike has Hot Grips that are lovely and toasty, also a scott oiler that keeps things nice and slick.

It is now not that clean as I was out in torrential rain yesterday, it now looks like it has been used as a submarine!!!

Thanks. Just purchased some on eBay.

See what they're like if, and when, they arrive.

FYI the ones I ordered do not fit and are far too large.

Probably made for hollow bars hence plastic looking cheap bar end insert.

I have a pair of VStrom guards on mine although they did need a bit of "re-engineering" to fit  :mfrlol:
