Not going to win any style points, but this is my cold/wet weather solution....





....they go over my stock handguards and make a huge difference in comfort when things turn ugly.

I rode a couple hundred miles on Sunday with the new hand guards. I did not ride in any rain but the wind on my hands was noticeably absent. There was a slight increase in airflow on the tops of my thighs. These will be great on cold days. I am still not 100% satisfied with the lay of the left side but everything stayed in place and nothing deformed from wind pressure even at the higher (low 70) temps. Because the right and left sides are not symmetrical, I will need to re-cut the left side top before I am 100% satisfied with the design of it. It's minor, but if I make it, I want to make it right.

In order to get these mounted correctly, I did have to add stainless steel screws and aluminum strips. I had to add a total of 5  1/8" holes into the stock hand guards to get the extensions mounted properly. There is no longer any wind buckle from the original compression mounting that I tried first round.

Pics of the new black material follow. Available colors will be the cream-white or black. Pricing will have a lot to do with shipping. I'm thinking somewhere around $45-$59 shipped depending on what size flat rate shipping box that I can fit these into. This would be a complete kit with two sides top and bottom with stainless screws, aluminum strip mounting hardware and instructions. I've got to test these to see if I can fold them to save on shipping without any detrimental after effects on the materials.

Treemuncher moved on two years ago. Having looked at the Touratechs recently and how overpriced they are, I was thinking to make some for myself. I could probably make some extras to sell.

I would look at the ones made for snowmobiles. There are a few out there that are a little thinner, and they fit right over the guards.

I bought my 3/4 mit from OBR AdV, but there seems to be lacking on their website currently......
As I get older, I am no longer surprised at what I know, I'm surprised at how much I don't know.

 As I recall Patrick runs those or similar year around. But you know those southern boys. Anything under 65 is cold.

Some of the better looking weather extensions have been carved from Jiffymart waste paper bins actually ::008::

That is a great link. I used to run a set of those on my quad in the winter back in the 80's. I just ordered a set. They have them priced so good I thought it was for each one but it is for a pair.

I did exactly what Super08 did. I have ridden with those for three seasons. Fast to put on and take off when weather turns warm.  They are cheap too!
