I've been tempted by the peanut covers, especially since my FIL made the r65 look like older airheads with the pinstriping, older-style front fender, etc. I even have the original rear fender that was painted gloss black and pinstriped. but the lower edge was destroyed when my FIL changed it into a bit of a scrambler with knobby tires. The knobs tore up the fender. Someday I intend to paint the replacement fender black and pinstripe to match what my FIL had.
But only slightly tempted. I've heard the peanuts aren't nearly as robust AND I guess I'm one of the few that actually like the look of the more modern, square covers.
