Just got a set of the VPS.
Went for the black on black guards
Plan is the plastic parts are easily and quickly removable for the summer Spanish trips (and UK) should it be hot....please
Got the black powder coated ones from a bike thing...He does the coating and still charges the RRP so there must be some profit margin there
Found them £18 cheaper but powder coating would have been dearer
Not able to test them as there is currently 4 inches of snow and falling
I got the skid plates for them off an Ebay store as they were doing a 15% off so they cost £13.59 delivered
Now thinking maybe get a pair of storm plastics as well
