I can't believe how far forward you've rotated your handlebars though . The levers and handguards are pointing so far down! In fact, it doesn't look like the hand guards would guard your hands at all brushing past tree branches and stuff. More like lever guards.
Thanks for the kind words!
Itīs all made of makrolon plastic, that you can warm up with a hot air gun and bend. Allthough I had to beef it up with a small piece of aluminium underneath the center of the baseplate.
Really durable stuff that have survived several "lay downs"

I stand alot when driving, and that possision of the handlebar suits me best.
