I have a high front guard now,it was just a matter of getting around to front guard is illegal here.Like a speedway track,gravel roads give their best traction when wet,you need a front guard to ride them wet.

Everyone has their own take on handling,I know everyone loves the airhead,but I find them an understeering bike,nervous when pushed and run wide.The big front tyre means I can push the front much harder,my entry and corner speeds are higher,and I can choose my exit line.I don't have a problem with adapting the bike to my needs,others may find the handling ghastly,but it inspires so much more confidence in me than the stock set up.
