Sandy and dirty
« on: April 23, 2012, 02:19:02 PM »
Since my CT was delivered last Friday I went for some touring. OMG this beautiful machine is getting dirty and sandy - up to my Givi case lock and at the bottom of my thighs so damn quickly  :013:

Had the first washing experience of the spokes also. With a wet small brush it is going quite okay.

Does anyone has a solution for the splashing dirt ? I actually don't want to attach ugly flaps...

Looking forward to your replies,

Grtz, Yippy

The best 'solution' is - stay on the road!  :745:

It doesn’t matter the fast you go, but the far you arrive ...

I really wonder what made you think I went off road ? That is not what I was asking. I did not go off road and that is not my intention.

Have seen also the topic  'dirty and wet' by decouple. Very much people have the same problem. I consider a hugger.

Oh...

...a hugger will protect the shock, but to stop the dirt being thrown up, I don't know what can be done.  :084:
