Those are both spots along the Sandwich Notch Rd. I wanted to explore that little road/path in the second to last picture but the flakes were beginning to fall and I was a long way from home.

Yes it is. It gives greater clearence in case you run a knob tire like the TKC. When I installed mine I thought it was a little flimsy but it's taken a beating and has held up fine.

Lower Handguard Extensions

I stole an idea from a dude on Stromtrooper (?) who extended his handguards using a thermoformable ABS sheet. I took straight .040" ABS sheet stock, cut a strip approx. 3" wide and wrapped around the lower side using the lower facet of the stock guard, trimmed, taped in place, more trimming so that they wouldn't contatct the tank at full lock, and they work GREAT! Keeps the big cold air blast from coming up behind the stock guard and freezing my fingertips, and not as bulky as the Hippo Hands that I've used before. The flash pictures bring the (cheezy-looking) tape more visible, but it's more subtle/blended in real life. I'll look to either rivet or bolt them in place for permanance.

19 degrees earlier this week, 30-mile highway cruise in to work, completely comfortable!

Thanks for the idea. Going to see what I can make with all this scrap acrylic I have laying around the shop. I made a gas can holder to attach to the passenger foot peg mount last year. Did a 3000 mile trip with no issues.
