Haha! Sorry, was just referencing another thread here that is quite entertaining.(depending on your sense of humor!)😁
I'll likely get one for myself as it's a quality, useful part at a very reasonable cost compared to many out there.(the Giving at Motostorm that is)
I was talking to my brother tonight about your suggestion. He is saying why put one more thing on the bike that you have to clean? And I'm saying wait a minute, the hugger is meant to protect a few other things (relatively speaking) protected and to be hones it looks pretty cool. I think he may have agreed being he just shrugged a bit.
So i guess this topic has a tendency to create controversy wherever it's mentioned lol. I'll have to check that thread out.
