So in my frustration of my back seat driver taking me over the magic roundabout in Swindon (look it up) I gave it a little welly then some traffic lights went red (as they always do when you get near them). So I gave it about 90% front brake. Any more and I'm sure the rear wheel would have come up and I would have ejected my misses. After being thoroughly impressed by the braking power of the Brembos, I decided to have a little look at the front guard. And as you mentioned, I can see a tiny little contact spot where it cleared the dust. Not marked anything, but can see what you mean Viobas. But you must be very hard on the brakes to do this. As I'm still more than satisfied with the bars, I shall place a little bit of felt on the bars where it may contact which will sort the issue out.
Got the new Hepco handle bar protectors so, playing with the idea of taking off the tarmac and onto a little more technical routes.
but that might wait for a little more protection to arrive.
Curious to know has anyone taken theirs off the tarmac and down some gnarly trails??
