Edgy - whats your opinion on the plastic panels - I see you are looking at crash protection , do you think they would survive a low speed fall down or two ?

Very keen to start personalizing my new ride and I`m waiting patiently to see who does what and the benefits thereof.
Catchy seems to have done a great job with a Wings slip on  :thumleft:
Im quite keen on the SW Motech guards for protection although not keen on adding weight!
Definitely going to swop the foot pegs to wider units as well!
Im busy looking at the various after market pipes available...who in SA does Leo Vince? They are always decent quality and reasonably priced?

Mine is still stock standard except for the Pirrelli Rally knobblies which it left the showroom in Bloem with

OOO congrats Andre  :drif:
