Gday Howie i am abit embarrassed about the front fender. The back story is, the Varadero handles better on the dirt, without the fork brace. I took the fork brace, & fender off, & rode it around like that. The other week i was going out for a ride, but it had been raining alot. At about 10pm the night before the ride, i thought to myself i need some sort of fender to keep the mud off me. I went out the shed got out the angle grinder, & cut the stock fender in half { i had just drunk a bottle of port}. Then that skirt that goes under the head light, that is held on with 3 clips at the front, and 2 plastic screws at the back. I pulled that off the bike, put it on the fender, & drilled 3 hole in it, bolted it together then replaced the 2 plastic screws with metal ones, & stuck it back on the bike . It looks like shit but it was free, and it worked. What i am going to do is buy a Super Moto fender, & put it on when i have not been drinking {should look better couldn't look any worse}. I will post some more pics soon. Cheers Peter

Very comfy bike, sold it after two years and 45K, couldn't get to terms with the vague feeling of the bike, even after upgrading to Ohlins. Went back to the 1150 GS.

It's not about the bike. It's about ADVENTURE riding and that makes your report very valid!
