I got some of the knuckle deflectors from Ebay Honda, I put them on OK and have found them to be very good, especially on the motor-way.

At the risk of being contentious am sorry to say BA55man that I don't think they look the part at all and would actually detract from the overall look of the Biffer.  Keep them on the Zooki Mate.

OK I suppose for a despatch rider but the genuine Honka ones look so much nicer, and apparently work OK as well.   In the  :oldie: days we never had such stuff (or at least I didn't) and when it got really cold and wet I did two things:    (1) Warm my gloves above the radiator (yes we did have radiators in those distant days) and then run Finnigans Waxoyl into the leather - amazing waterproofer that stuff and (2) rode with a plastic bag over the gloves.

Next somebody will tell me that in the fifties you stuffed a piece of a cardboard box down the front of your jacket to help keep warm - it's true, come on 60's Lad own up :164:

Hiya.
My Varadero came with hand guards as standard. 5 years of riding in all weather (it was my main transport!) and I never suffered cold or wet hands even in winter. with my new CBF arriving Friday I was wondering what protection the knuckle guards in the accessory catalogue might offer if combined with heated grips during the colder months. - I know - get all the summer riding out the way first!
Must confess that I don't like the look of the guards in the piccies!  :003:

Look at the Honda ones on the Honda accessory site.  Reports are that thay are not bad and give a reasonable amount of protection.  Look smart to.

Probably will be ones for better protection out there, just depends what you are looking for.
