The open design of the rear frame underscores the lightness of BMWs construction. Disadvantage: The gaps mean that the legs and feet are completely exposed to flying water and dirt. There is nothing to stop the water splashing off the boots right up the riders thighs. The effect of this is a soaking wet and dirty rider and pillion passenger.
Worse still, the dirt and water get all over the side covers, panniers and footpeg holders. The high-quality, solid-colour ABS plastic protective elements are easy to fit. There is no registration or TUV requirement.
Effective protection from whipped-up water and dirt.
Strong with precision fit.
Quick, easy and safe fitting. No need to remove the rear wheel.
