Hand Guards

Been windy here the last couple of weeks, nothing major, 15-25 with gusts 30-35. The pucker factor has been on high alert at highway speeds as a gust will hit and nearly take me out of my lane. Installed an Acerbis fender last week hoping that would help, and it did, very slightly. Took the handguards off this morning before riding and WOW what a difference. Still get pushed around but the puckering is much diminished.

Still glad I got the Acerbis. Looks good in black on a red '08.

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.
