splash guard

I made a cheap splash guard for the upper rear wheel area. Cut down a piece of an old trash can attached with some strategically placed tie wraps. NO, I have never owned a KLR.

Great idea. I just picked up some truck size mud flaps to make something for mine. I didn't think about using a trash can!

I just traded my DL1000 on a 2012 S10. I LOVED my Strom, hoping I will like the S10 as much!:

The rack in the passenger area is very easy to take off if you want to put the passenger seat. Very clever!

I own a KLR and have been wanting to upgrade my Tenere with this splash guard. Can you tell me if the rear tire clears the splash guard with full compression? I was thinking corrugated plastic but your trash can sounds good.

Did you do this on Earth Day?

That 1 in 527 grade will do it every time.

You are right. the opposite direction I only managed 4.5085388994 L/100Km

Of course I always take lab grade measuring equipment with me at all times.

I couldn't stand the temptation. I'm posting that in the WTF thread.
Thank you Bob and your drummer.
