What is the best rear fender solution?

I was looking back on some of the threads. What do you think is the best solution for the rear fender?

Where is the best place to buy the rear fender? Some come with chain gaurd?Does anybody have some good feed back on how they like their rear fender?

I was going to make one out of a rubber flap. Thought it would be wize to check with you guys first.

Love the fenda extenda in the front. Time to protect the back!

Thank you eddie and weljo!

Powerbronze hugger 89 euro, thats a little too much for me. It looks great thought damn.

Sw-motech chain guard polished aluminum $59.00.

I am so cheap! I'm going to make some out of carboard! Ha! Ha! I'll let you know what I come up with and post a couple photos!

Weljo is known far and wide as a man of impeccable taste with a "no farkle too far" attitude to match.

Whitehorse Press is going out of business so it's time for a final sale. Signed copies of my book are now $10 with free shipping in the U.S. while they last.

I have one of these on my '08. It comes with small stick on pads that, in my opinion, don't work very well. I ended up securing it to the battery box with small "chicago" screws.

So far, so good. It's doing it's job, and is still cheaper than a hugger.
