Is it me or is the entire rear end of the bike in need of some tidying up? It looks atrocious and needs work.

Does anyone know of a company that is making fender eliminators or tidy-up kits? I cant seem to find anything?

Yes, it's you!

This bike doesn't need a tail tidy. It's not a sports bike. It's designed for traveling in all sorts of weather, on & off road, this throwing all sorts of shite onto rear of bike. The more protection you have back the better.

Go out & ride & get her dirty!!

To each their own right?! Personally, I see a lot of things people do to their bikes as silly. I just want something that isn't the size of a whale's tail.

I don't like mine either and was going to make one.

There is this 007plate universal tail tidy that's also a license plate hider gadget but its pricey. Here is what it looks like when I did it digitally on their website

Another shot of the AQ setup. I understand they are now offering an updated kit where you dont have to measure and cut the existing tail section.
Dude I need your nevada GPX files..... I went one time to Carson City and fell in love with the desert.

Show me the ways!

To be honest even sport bikes look like ass with most eliminator kits. I guess Im old and dont get it but I have yet to see a eliminator kit that looks worth a crap. Most make it look like you crashed your bike and cant afford to fix it. LOL

Or maybe you're like me and are willing to ride in the rain - but don't want mud flung down the back of your jacket. The only thing I want to clean up on the tail id the metal bracket to change the angle of the license plate - and the extension to the plate light that accounts for it.
