    Just in case anyone was wondering. I installed the Alcan on my GSA and the install is super easy. It takes about 15 seconds to install them. It is much easier to install them than I expected. The video showing the Rogue install is the same time it takes to install the Alcans in my experience.

    Thanks hippo hands.

    Then you are good to go! Rogue would work well on the Scrambler.

    I saw the head on photo where they are on a triumph explorer. Do you have a photo from rider perspective on the triumph? Do they allow access to the stock accessory buttons? fog lights/heated grips?

    I've been wanting a set of these for years, but didn't think I'd use them enough to justify the expense. I rode about 3 hours this year in mid-20's temp in rain and my waterproof winter gloves plus the heated grips just weren't enough. I realize I would have paid $500 for a pair of these that day after the first 30 minutes, LOL.

    My Alcans arrived yesterday. Took less than 5 minutes to install; quick 'n' easy enough that these could be installed or removed during a ride as needed (provided you've got somewhere to store them), which I wasn't able to easily do with prior muffs I've used. Too much ice today to test them out; hopefully very soon.

    FWIW: 3rd gen (2015-) Versys 650 with hand guards and mirror extenders.

    Will these fit on a G650GS without hand guards?

    Just received mine today, VERY fast shipping! I just put the Back Country version on my '05 R1200GS. Went right on, super easy, just like everyone has said. My gloves and heated grips are almost fine, but when its 20 degrees on the way to work at 5 AM, I realize there is something missing. Hopefully these fill the gap! Prolly gonna wish I'd went with the Rogues, but I do a lot of trail riding so I went with the Back Country. Anxious to try them, but we got 4+ inches of snow last night!

    You need hand guards, to fit the hand covers correctly.

    As long as the hand covers stay in place using the Velcro is owners preference.

    On the fence between the Alcan and the Rogue. Do they both fit into each other equally for on bike storage, or is the Rogue more storage friendly. Thanks!
