So things are coming together nicely on my HDB 950 setup. I took this photo Sunday. I have both powerlets installed with a dual heat troller controlling them.

Tonight, I just received my HDB Ultimate Touring Hand Guards

The touring system basically includes longer guards and a matching spacer for the left bar so everything stays symmetrical for those who use a cruise control on their bikes.

Here you can see how much longer compared to the old guard on the bike

Voila! My Kaoko cruise control installed with the new longer HDB ultimate touring guard

I don't have time to finish the install tonight but I'll post pics on Thursday when I do.

I think I'll spray paint my spacer flat black. s

A happy customer. No other connection. Top quality goods, flawless product, customer service (a couple issues with fitment (not product, my bike) and a mirror broken in shipping were handled without hassle). In the same league as Woody at Woody's Wheelworks.

HIGHLY recommended.

Cool guards...

Looking for the difference between the regular handguards and the "Ultimate Handguards"... riding an XR650R, so it's not a 400+ lb bike. (don't see a distinction on the site unless I'm missing something...)

Also - I'm assuming if I hook up one of the on/off switches in the top clamp, I could use that as a "permanent" kill switch? (a little theft prevention...)

Any thoughts on that?

I've got an F650GS with the Touratech WP suspension upgrade. It includes a new set of trees and bar mounts.

I'm getting riser clamp dimensions of 100mm x 43mm with an overall width of 130mm.

Got anything that'll work for me to get a set of your guards?

Paul @ Highwaydirtbars

I just want to get out a huge thanks to Paul over @ HDB's.
After a simple inquiry about some smaller parts he supplies
they show up @ my door, in two days. Pics will be coming after I finish the install this weekend. These parts are a work of art, and the service second to none. Thanks again!

Great product and Outstanding Service

Paul was quick to help me sort out using his hand guards on a F800GS with Rox risers. Once we had it figured out he shipped everything promptly. The install was very easy & clean. The flip out mirrors are fantastic, very stable and way better than the stock mirrors (which are good only for lookign at yourself not the road behind you). Yesterday I "tested" the hand guards and can attest to there strength. Great product, fair price, and great service.

Here's what you do.....

.... you buy the Highway Dirtbikes setup. Then go look for a bike to add to them. In that order - they're that good. If they are more expensive than the other stuff that's out there, it's because you can see by the quality, design, fit and finish that they cost more to build, and that they are worth it. I got my first set the other day for a brand new bike and they're just gorgeous. I love bombproof stuff - these are IT!

Will second ASSFAULT's comments below - +plus 1.

Thanks Paul.

Acerbis vs HDB trial

My set up with HDB is on the right, my son's set up with Acerbis on the left.

After 8 days of riding (and crashing) in Utah in May, I can say, unequivocally that hands down, HDB is a superior product. Acerbis bars bent on some of the falls, interfering with the clutch or break levers. In addition, the standard mirror on the Acerbis bike broke off the clamp that holds the mirror to the handlebar/clutch. I crashed a few times with the HDB mirrors in the open position and they simply folded back. Visibility on the highway was as good as with original mirrors. In addition to protection, of course, the look is way cooler, in my opinion, and the switches/powerlet/ram-ball options for the top clamp are very convenient.

Also, Paul of HDB is very responsive to emails, inquiries, exchanges, questions, etc. Customer service is outstanding.

Overall, worth every penny. I highly recommend HDB vs Acerbis.

Im looking for a new set of hand guards for my BMW HP2. I destroyed the last Acerbis set. These look like they are worth a shot. Any body know what ones i need?
