I'm curious to hear people's feedback, too. I have a tough time believing they would do anything but keep a bit of road water and grit off the bike and may actually be more troublesome if you get mud under there.

Thoughts?

As explained to me at a Horizons Unlimited meeting a number of years ago, the largest advantage to a front fender extender is that you will have a lot fewer flats on your rear tire. The extender keeps many of the objects you hit with the front time from impacting the rear tire, so less rear tire flats.

Fender extender sales people have obviously had some Zig Ziglar training. In particular "Secrets of closing a sale" please!.

This I would agree with. Just ordered the Bluebird extender here:

I've got them on a couple other bikes also. Nice product.

Yeah I bought one for my NC750X - excellent quality but it took a long time to come. I am confused about the Spain thing because I ordered it through them as a Birmingham UK address I think and yet I was told they were made in Spain.
Anyway it looks much nicer than the ABS plastic one I had already bought but not fitted.
BTW - hope I'm not preaching to the converted but Sikaflex 291 is the best (only?) stuff worth using to fix it on?

Have the pyramid front extender and rear hugger fitted. For road riding the hugger is great for keeping stuff clean but will become quickly clogged when off-road I suspect. Is also shiny black where the rest of my bike is matt black so not 100% on it yet...
