I received the radiator guards, and they are a joy to behold. The powder coating finish is flawless. Moreover, they installed quickly, as everything fit without any alteration (a rarity in the world of the 2009 G650GS). I think the engineering is great. As you know from your ride to Alaska, we have lots (and lots more) of gravel roads. I had to pry gravel out between the radiator and the front frame. I'm sure I won't have that problem again.
Thank you for making up some more of these, and getting one to me so quickly. I really appreciate it.
