    LOL! You framistancesobfornet John-John! Just for that we are gonna visit! Can ya get an RV and MB on a plane?

    Kidding aside, I was asked to leave the Great State of Texas in the 90's and told not to come back. Long story and I look bad. (hehe)

    Kinda like waking up behind a dumpster in Baltimore wondering where your pants are. These things happen.

    65 here today and I have not one working MB!

    Here are one of the few that do not break on an MB.
    They are plastic and very crack resistant.
    Fenders Full ATB

    What about H2O getting passed the air filter?
    Should you cover it some how?
    I have the CNS carb B.T.W.
    Seems a little vulnerable.

    hahah my bad on the random silicone thingy, nothing to do with fenders, i was agreeing with fall-down-stand-up
    silicone the cover of the magneto to seal it from rain other wise water will get in there

    Those poly fenders work great. Cheap and light, and they will take incredible twisting and bending and snap right back, easy to trim to fit, and not likely to send you over the bars even if you have a jame up with chain or tire. But don't know how well they would take and keep paint; left mine black. No, I don't have stock in the company...

    Crashing does not scare me what-so-ever; sudden un-planned stops in mid stride scare the carp outta' me!

    water can sneak down your throttle cable and into your carb in a rainstorm. you can buy a little rubber thingy for brake cables from a bike shop and slip it on there with a bit of silicon at the top.
