Where's my hacksaw?
Thanks - I used the 2010 SMC fender - fits perfect and has a black/white color scheme that suits the bike well. Fork guards are produced by tactical application of a band saw and sander to the original low fender...

Motard mode engaged

Street mode engaged! Spent quite some time this winter lacing these wheels up will be interesting to see how it performs, but 16/42 gearing might be a bit low, have to change to 17 up front and go up to 45 on the dirt wheels.
