    Muffs

    It's September so winter has arrived in the north east and I was wondering if anyone know where I can source some muffs for my 1200gs.

    I contacted Steptoe but he said he wasn't doing them anymore.

    I contacted VAL_H and have had no reply

    I like the tucano urbano ones which use the bar end weight to secure them but I don't know which ones they are.. (they seem to be earmarked for scooters on their web site )

    Can anyone enlighten me. I don't _have_ to have tucano ones, so if anyone can recommend some muffs and a supplier I'd be grateful.

    Thx
    Mark.

    Dreamer,

    Who makes those muffs. Are they the Tucano Urbano ones that val sells?

    It looks like you've got the hand shields in place, is that right. I'd heard that you had to remove the hand shields to fit the urbano's

    Anyone else know if htis is true

    they fit over the handshields on the 1150, but you have to remove touratech extensions to the handshields

    Oh, yes. Away with bulky winter gloves! Away with lack of feel! Say hello to warm, dry hands than can still operate all your switches, levers and throttle properly all through the winter.

    look a bit like oven gloves!

    i assume they are comfortable to use, they look bulky.
