They wouldn't be so bad if they were a complete mudguard, at least it would keep the crap off the rider or pillion.

I'm with you.I like the new look but would be concerned that the stock hugger is not long enough now to do a good job.I was chatting with a fellow biker on Sunday at a bike-stop cafe-in-the-woods who had a similar complaint about his 800 Yamaha.Lot's of road crud getting thrown up under the Rear seat area

Strangely, it puts less crap on your back now. Although there wasn't that much water on the road yesterday.

Might get the chance to test it properly today

Better still stop making bikes with tiny rear ends to quote the visionary Sir Mix-a-Lot, "I like big butts and I cannot lie"

Haven't put it on yet, doing a bit of an upgrade to the set up.

V2 will be one of these once I've sorted out the water proofing.

Microphones will be in the side pods, camera will probably be poking out from top right of the number plate.

That's my usual rant. Some bikes like the v4 panagale look rediculous.
