Zoobie the gearshift assist cost R6382.21. Then the enabling code was R553.26 and then fitting was R360.00

I think it is well worth it and works brilliantly. Ive tried it at low speeds and at higher speeds with no issues.

I also fitted a headlight protector and got a cool little reflective sticker from Nocturnul_Thingie for the rear poop scoop (is that correct)?

Fitted a raid tool box supplied by Flying Brick. Great people to deal with and very happy with it.

Me too!  Mine from Jabo, new black one, 1 cm bigger (does not sound like much but allowed to get my tow rope in as well) and option to either use hinge or detach lid.  Great stuff.

And I ditched my rear wheel hugger.  Looks like it mean business now.  :-P

The only problem is they don't stay that good looking  (boots rub against them, get all dull) 
I'm considering to get the Wunderlich ones instead. Anyone got that, if so what it looks like after a few months?

Thats ok. Better them than the frame. When they get to damaged I can replace them also as they are fairly inexpensive.

The wunderlich are about R300 more expensive and I am not sure about the look. Im sure they will also get scratched and worn out though

Actually rubbed the paint off to the metal just after the guard's end.  :-(  Bike not even 6 months old
Think it's from ride standing for hours on end.
