I know it is the wrong time of year to be thinking of this, but my friend is making an order, and has a discount, so I am going to get in on it with him.
First - Handguards
I want them for blocking the wind. I won't be needing them to protect my hands from trees, or branches or whatever. That said, I still would like them to look nice.
I have narrowed it down to the following parts (Hope people don't mind that I borrowed your pictures).
Acerbis Dual Road
Powermadd Star Series Guards - I would also get the extra extension piece for these to make them taller (seen here
In order of appearance (my opinion, best to worst) Acerbis, KTM, Powermadd.
In order of price (cheapest to most expensive) KTM, Powermadd, Acerbis.
For those that have had these, how do they do at blocking wind. I plan to basically ride in any and all temperatures, as long as there isn't snow on the road at the time, or in the previous couple weeks (all the cinders and salt they put on the roads makes them too unsafe for me to risk it).
The second part of my setup - Heated Grips
I want something that works well, has variable heat, and will last.
Again I have it narrowed down to the following parts.
Oxford Grip Heaters
Symtec Heated Grips
Heat Troller Grip Kit -Mounted (Looks like Symtec heating elements with a heat troller)
In order of price (cheapest to most expensive) - Sumtec, Oxford, Heat Troller
I will be adding a heat troller (or two) for heated gear so I like that it would match, but other than that I don't have any opinions, that is why I'm asking you guys.
Thanks for any help you can give.
