Those are some righteous handguards ...

What are they ... ?

Google "MSR Elephant Ear Handshields" or "MSR Hand D-Flectors" and also "Moose Racing Foam Hand Protectors". I think there's a few other brands of the "elephant ear" protectors out there. I've used the MSR's and they help for very cold, wet, muddy riding.

Cliff's right - they are from Moose racing. They just velcro on top of the real handgaurds and work great for protecting the hands from cold weather.

If your getting cold from windblast though here is the full meal deal; handled prolonged stretches of 90mph no problem!

Thanks - yes, I've sussed out the handguards - should work well - snowing here yesterday ...

That piece of plastic is an absolute travesty ...

Don't be surprised if a Rapid Response Team is dispatched from Mattighofen to take the bike back ...

Yeah I know... I've got groupies amongst the 690 riders here. It's a big step up from using that space to dry my underwear while I ride

Meh, real 690 riders go commando so no underwear drying is necessary

pegs, risers...

I would like to get more space between the pegs and grips. I've got the BRP mount for the Scotts, and that moved it up a bit, but I'm still a bit cramped standing.

This is a 2013, and I'm not sure the clutch line can stand anymore bar rise.

What's working for you guys?

Thanks

Has anyone used the Giant Loop Buckin' Roll Tank Bag on the 690? How did you mount it?

I was thinking about getting one, but could not envision how to mount it securely on the 690.

Thanks

The bucking roll is for tower style tanks it might work on the safari but I can't see it working on the stock or rally raid setups.
