  1. Although the weather here is nowhere near as extreme as Canada, the roads are heavily gritted as well. I have always ridden in the winter and do like a few trips out as long as it's not torrential rain (too much!). Thanks for the info, I'll have a look for the Puig comments.
  2. Hi all, Collected my 'new' Tracer GT at the weekend - ex-demo with 800 miles on the clock, haven't had much chance to ride but loving it so far. I bought it for touring and long weekends in the UK and Europe, having retired my trusty Fazer thou. Does anyone else tour in the winter? I'm going for my fourth consecutive Dragon Rally in Snowdonia in three weeks time, so am excited to be putting some miles on the GT. Does anyone have an opinion on the Givi or Puig touring handguards? They look pretty good but not sure how effective they'd be to keep the rain off. Up to now I have used Oxford muffs but absolutely hate em. I'm also considering a Yamaha top box too, and possibly a taller screen, but we'll see. The other question is about keeping the bike looking nice and corrosion free - I have heard good things about XCP rust blocker, seems better rated than AC 50. Cheers, Colin
