It's a worthwhile upgrade. And, really, no more pricey than many of the other farkles we put on our motorsickles. Especially since it's made by a small company, and there's not much of a market. Well, maybe the W800 crowd will start buyin' 'em pretty soon!

The front end feels "heavy'; I know it sounds strange but it is a good thing - like it's locked in on rails. I have had the bike out quite a few times after installing it and it really makes a difference. The front end just feels more solid. The fit and finish on the brace is great, and it took virtually minutes to install.

You need to pull your fork gaitors down around the top of the brace to finish the look. I don't have a good picture of my old W with the brace but you can get an idea at the superbrace website.

Here's a link from the site which may help:

The gators fit nicely over the Superbrace. Plus that keeps road crap from getting on the upper sliders and eventually degrading the fork seals.

The gaiters are seated properly down around the top of the brace. If you look close enough you will see that.

Sounds like you may need to adjust your gators dad. Nice ride yesterday though!

Appears to be a modern Hinckley Bonneville T100, pre 2009.

Neither are my gaiters. The bottom ripple is a bit distorted; always have been. The seating on my brace is correct.
