I ordered the same Polisport SM mudguard and some black fork guards, which I'm getting some stickers for. I will need to make up a cover for the ABS sensor though (which the alt rider fork guards cover)
    Well I got my call today from Adventure Bike Shop to say my Altrider High Fender Kit was in transit (Currently in Netherlands) so should be here shortly.

    So we'll be able to show off both Altrider option and Camel Adv option soon.

    Oh my god, can you see any corrosion yet?

    I'm still undecided about which Windscreen Support bar. Don't know which one to go with yet.

    There's one under the tank, it cannot be seen so there's no need to replace if you don't want, i have tho because I bought the TT fogs and it's much easier to run cables under the tank so replaced the hose at the same time, there's also one that runs at the back of the cylinder by the tool box/battery it's fiddly to tighten the jubilee at the toolbox end but still very doable.

    Spurred into action, plus the temp was a balmy 5 degrees, I decided to get my finger out and attack the brake lines. Finished the rear and under the tank lines and what a nightmare of a job. Patience is a must as this is probably the fiddliest brake line job I’ve ever done.
