Rear Splash Guard

Got an R & G tail tidy on my speed and found that when riding in the wet (which happens a lot over here in the UK) I got a lot of spray which would cover the back end of both the bike and me in road muck.

So I decided to have a look to see if I could find a fender extender to keep things under control a bit and keep the muck off of my back.

After a bit of searching around I came across a rear splash guard from Touratech the adventure accessory people here in the UK, it is for the street (They don't do a speed specific one) so needed the mounting holes modifying a bit to make it fit but well worth it as it manages to break up the spray enough to stop it coming too far forwards.

So if you ride in the rain and have a tail tidy this little device is well worth the 30 it cost.

Cheers

Riggs

That looks like very sensible idea, Added to my endless wish list.

We gotta laugh at ourselves though, having spent a few quid eliminating the fender for purely aesthetic reasons, low and behold we're being sprayed with crap... due to lack of fender.

I made one from a b and q value paint roller tray. A fraction of the touratech price and it weighs next to nothing.

I'm amazed anything can get past those HUGE number plates you run over there!

I do love the look of my clean tail, but with the short rear ends of these bikes, they do spray up a lot of water when riding in wet condtions.

Def pretty annoying to get my back and @ss all wet even when just riding in a light rain or wet road condition.

Nice solution.I am similarly looking for some thing to reduce the crap off the rear tyre...........

A nice low profile rear (trailing) hugger would be neat. saw a picture of one on a speedy once but can never find it now.
