High Front Fender on R 100 GS

I have a '91 bumblebee and really like the looks of some of the high front fenders that I've seen. Any suggestions as far as brands to look for or stay away from?

Thanks!

Acerbis, I had one on my g/s and was fine. Hard to beat for the money. Especialy since the BMW one is a couple of hundred dollars I think.

What are the options for non-BMW front fenders for the R100GS? No more Acerbis Baja now, right? Looking for one, willing to buy used.

Contemplating using a Honda XR's fender. Views?



Cheers

There are a ton of aftermarket front fenders the newer fenders are molded in such a way that most of them do not need braces.

I have Acerbies Black Honda CRF450R front fender for my GS, that I've yet to mount seems like it was 20 bucks or so.

What's wrong with a standard high mudguard?
