I asked about this some time ago......It is a Polisport fender that he had painted to match. I bought one and have it mounted. It is a nice piece and actually channels air through to the radiator. It IS a little short on the front coverage, but it is a good option and quite inexpensive.

My turn!

Sitting in bed recovering from vasectomy #2 (what can I say, I have Olympic swimmers), so what do I do? Torture myself with envy. Duh.

Well i just came here to say you're all a bunch of jerks! With your 'Adventuring' and your clever mods and in-depth helpful advice. You ought to be ashamed!

Aww, who am I kidding, I can't stay mad at you. Let's gaze longingly at one another's posts like we did when we were just lurking.


The day it arrived (shipped from a shop in Vegas, hence the [hideous] decal kit, in the process of remedying that so don't judge!).




Here's my and my buddy's 950s in Pahrump, Nevada. He joined me the moment he heard I signed up for Jimmy Lewis's class (After nearly 20 years riding, I had never ridden an inch off road. So of course I bought a 950 . It only made sense to learn to ride it from Jimmy).




Here's my buddy and Jimmy in the figure 8 rut



950 in the redwoods



OK I feel better now. I'm glad we had this little chat.

DesertSurfer, the blue high fender was painted to match the colour of the motorcycle

This fender is from Polisport, and it's a Supermoto fender that can be mounted on any Motorcycle.

Here's mine: Bought two weeks ago dirty as all hell and covered from head to toe in with a truck bed liner. Spent the past two weeks tearing everything apart, cleaning, and ended up with this beauty. Not bad looking for 63,000 well used miles (Temporary plasti dip)
