Hey !!
I was priviledged enough to join the "why we buy high fenders" club last weekend !!!

Snow-ish crap from the Central Oregon sky turned this NICE dirt road into a nasty GLUE within 15 minutes,
......and we were still stuck out on it.

I never thought I'd purposely RIDE in crap like that....
....but crap like that just happened to us, while we were riding a nice dirt road.

Ripped that low fender right off, RIGHT-NOW fast !!
Fortunately I was still struggling with simply steering at a slow speed, and I just felt a big BUMP.

950SE High Fender is only $39.99
I haven't figured out which fork guards to use yet....
...the SX85 ones are kinda cheezy looking
...the 690SMC ones need a bracket made for the bottom,

We'll start with the fender, and see how it evolves
"got no problem with keeping truly roadless areas as wild....
On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
...then that land should be open for public use" (peterman)
