Hi All, new member here, had my AT now for a couple of months, and very pleased with it but the weather protection from rear wheel water/dirt fling is like most bikes nowadays: pretty much non-existent:frown2:.

Thus, a decent hugger is on the shopping list. I say decent, as i am not overly impressed with UK choice so far: Gaudy and nasty looking- obvious "add ons" springs to mind: bright colours, gloss finish, Yuk!-form over function......?

Sort of thing I want is as follows:

Matt black, to match the rest of the bikes plastic fittings and blend in discreetly, with max practicality,-a sort of "touring super hugger" i.e:

Extends as far as is practicable over the back wheel, not just a "Bikini" item.

Has an inside divider to protect the chain from gritty crud.

Extends downwards at the front to protect shock linkage from crud. (I know this is a claim of some makers already, but adequate?)

Any one know of a supplier who makes such an item, UK or worldwide? Suppliers out there-take note!
