    My CT

    had my 2017 CT Highlander for about 4 weeks now, and finally getting it how I want it.

    Fitted Engimoto Satnag bracket: ace, now satnag fits in right place to see it.
    Fitted Givi handguards extenders: ....verdict: Great,
    Fitted Pyramid Hugger: verdict: better than nowt, but needs to go further back
    Fitted Pyramid Fender extender: I fit these to all bikes, as I believe they are ace.
    Fitted H&B skid plate (today) : Looks great, but fitting was a bit of a pain as the front left piece that fits in place of the ally spacer was a little long..... but took my electric file to it, and managed to get it sorted.

    Now just have to collect new silencer as DPD are a sh*t delivery company and never told me they had it.
    Tomorrow I will get to fit the arrow exhaust, and I think that’s me finished.

    Ride safe y’all

    Worth while extras and if your getting crap form the back tyre onto the seat try a 'Duck Tail' or an improvised version. I used a piece of rubber car mat.

    Hey Dave, I'm thinking of buying the Givi handguard extenders but I'm concerned at paying £70-£80 for 2 pieces of smoked plastic  :114: so I'd be glad if you could elaborate on how you find the wind blast protection of these extenders on your hands,  cheers.

    The Givi extenders are a great improvement on the originals.
    If you really want good wind protection, fit Barkbusters blizzard muff-type things....they dont look great, but do work (I have a pair on my other bike)

    my crosstourer had the givi extenders, but unfortunately it was form over function,

    they did absolutely  nothing to improve wind,rain protection.

    the bottom of the handguard could do with extending also, the Honda guards just seem too far away for weather protection,

    but they looked nice LOL

    I am a big fan of Hippo Hands.  Less than the price of a pair of waterproof winter gloves.

    The Alcan model fits as if it was made for the CT.

    Think warm.
    Think dry.
