Ahhhh yes!! that's exactly what I've been thinking about doing Smeggy!
Thanks for those pictures. My fjr had a very similar thing on it stock and it worked quite well. Even a 200 dollar hugger isn't going to protect things much better...
That's great stuff man, I'll do something very similar
Beat me to the suggestion, those flaps work, I ran into a deal on Ebay for my Hugger , which is the only reason I changed out. As you said , cheap they are not.
