Was that blue high fender painted to match or is it a Euro KTM part offering? Do tell...
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)

First day of summer...

Was a beautiful day for a ride Saturday!

Started the day of right with a fantastic breakfast burrito at Penny's Place in Perth.

Followed up 400kms of some great riding!
