Touratech Handguards
« on: November 29, 2018, 11:36:54 AM »
Has anyone fitted these to the XR? I know they're not listed on their website but the OEM guards on the later GS models look much the same. Just in case, I mean the full guards not the extenders. I have Givi ones on my bike and they still don't give any more protection on the underside than the OEM.

Otherwise maybe Barkbusters, but without the alloy bar thing...

I have put on Barkbuster Blizzard for the winter. Ugly as f@k, but functional.

But, I have roasty-toasty fingers. And believe me, they will be coming off once the weather starts warming in about 4 or so months

Well exactly.
Mine will be off in the spring too, hopefully.
