Helen's New Screen & Mudguard

Helen's Screen Just after Christmas Helen ordered a new Givi screen for her bike from Hein Gericke. We went and picked it from the store in Salford today. I then fitted it later on that day. It was very easy to fit, just a matter of removing 3 screws to take the old screen off and then using those screws to fix the new screen back on with. Helen says that the new screen is better but make the wind sound more louder.

Helen's Mudguard I have also recently modified Helen’s rear mudguard. We initially removed it because it was very large and ugly. But we found that loads of crap was getting on the bike without it on. So I decided that we could remove the bottom bit of the mudguard and just use the top half. So I went at the mudguard with a hacksaw and cut off all the mudguard that was below the number plate. The mudguard is now functionally but not spoiling the looks of the bike anymore.
