Haven't seen that one here. Did you make that up?

You can pick from about 15 different plates here.

They are for the BMW GS 1150. You need the kit which includes all of the brackets/bolts. Pages and pages of hand guard info here:

http://tigertriple.com/forum/viewtop...guards&start=0

Tons of windscreens discussion there too. The Tiger windscreens are a compromise of buffeting, coverage, and wind noise. It's a personal "fit" for most people based on their body proportions, helmet, seat and comfort level. For me, it works great. No turbulence, yes there is wind noise and yes bugs still splatter in the middle of my helmet visor. I'm 6'4", 35" inseam, Corbin seat with a Shoei RF 1000 helmet.

Stock vs MRA Vario (you can see the Micky Mouse stock hand guards too )

Great pic. You should send that one to Triumph to emphasize why they should make a proper adventure tourer.

Hey! 2 home made skid plates in last 2 posts! I recognize them from Tigertriple. Now don't fight over who gets to build one for me.
