I understand ok.
One day I'll get around to removing the extraneous stickerage too.
I did remove the "Helmet advisory" from the fuel tank though.
I reckon that smoke lense is gonna look the ducks nuts on your bike!
I too ride in the rain.. Well.. when it does. We're having a bit of a dry spell right now, but I have
ridden in the rain with my fender removed like this.
Not too sure I understand why folk have a problem though.
Yes, you do get more crap sprayed up the back of the bike, but who cares?
It's raining...I and the bike are getting wet anyway and everything's
throwing crap up, from the cars in front of me, to the bus / truck that I'm passing..
It all comes good next time the bike get's washed.
But then, maybe I'm not as concerned about having a dirty bike now and then.
Just makes it more noticeable when it does
Oh yeah, that's actually partly why I have the plate on the angle like that. It helps minimise the over spray at least little bit. Certainly moreso than if it was hanging straight down. Plus I think it looks a bit better like that.
I know what you mean about the 'plate though.
One thing we got lucky with here is the relatively small plates we have as standard.
I pity the poor bar-stewards in UK. Man they have some huge plates over there!
