This rigid-steel fender skirt, designed to replace the original factory-equipped aluminum trim, is formed, polished, and chrome-plated. Its ribbed pattern offers a unique styling element and adds rigidity.
What can I say. It is a fender skirt. But it is different than the Stock one so it gives you a little different look. I use locktite on the nuts and never had one come out. Good hardware and an easy upgrade I don't have this on my current bike but I put about 50,000 miles on the 08 with nor of these.
I really like the turn signals integrated in to the trunk but, there was just not enough light down lower on the bike. These make a wider sight picture from the back. They blend in with the lines of the bags and provide a lot of light back there. Not a lot of time on the road with them yet but so far I like the look
