Nice Dan...Just want to know regarding your Evotech Radiator guard. Does the radiator guard screen go end to end? Cos I purchased the R&G radiator guard and upon installation it was about an inch short on each side...exposing the radiator fins...so i returned it to the dealer. I took photos of it and dealer sent the photos to R&G UK...and they said they didn't know that it was short on each end...they will have to do R&D again for the 390 radiator guard and make it a bit longer on each side.

Yeah it is mate but only short on one side, maybe about an inch short. I was going to send it back to Evotech but figured everyone will be in the same boat and its not as bad as the R&G's.

Hi Dan...can I ask a small favor...can you take a close up semi front view of the Evotech Radiator guards like how I took mine above? So I can see how short it is compared to the R&G's?

Many thanks,
Miguel

Can you not stick the rego to the back of the license plate like we do here in NZ?

Nup, has to be in its own private package mate, October 2014 is when we no longer have to display them due to number plate recognition roll out.

Thanks for the comments guys.

The tyres are pretty good in the dirty patch's mate. I wouldnt want to spend hours in the dirt but they would get you across it.

The trail that the bike is sitting on is my driveway, its fun on the EXC but slow on the Duke.....cause I dont wanna get it dirty :eek:

Ive had a number of people ask if they could come to my place with their bikes for photos, but I agree the Peewee does look good in the jungle.

Have 8 weeks annual leave coming up so planning on a heap of photo scenes with a photography friend......thankfully its FREE! Will post the good ones.
