1. Looking to replace stock lollipops on my two XB12Xs, don't want bar end jobs but lower profile, easy to find and easy to fit. Recommendations please..
+ Going on a winter tour in November my 2 piece is starting to leak, especially round the bollocks. Looking to buy a one piece. Recommendations please..
Cheers.

Obviously colour is your own choice.
Dont go near a mirror.

My Alpinestars one piece is waterproof and easy to put on, packs small as well. I have bar end mirrors on all my bikes.

I've got Rukka stuff bought at the NEC bike show from Infinity for much less than RRP.

I have a selection of different mirrors but following in Adam's footsteps, I like my bar end mirrors...

:yt: about bar end mirrors, but I prefer this type, for filtering through traffic (not because they're cheap, but as well as):

Can't offer any good advice about waterproofs, I've usually got damp elbows and a damp crotch :ill:

Thanks for all the replies..... In the end I went for the lime green mankini

I use those on the X1 and Duc. I like using a masonry Rawlbolt to make them secure in stead of what they're supplied with.
