Thumbs up on the Hippo hands. I used them for daily commuting in Seattle for two years through all sorts of slop and had no complaints. Best part is that you can pull them off and stow them when the weather turns nice.
Hey, thanks for pointing me to that - I had "admired" the DL handguards from afar, it's much easier walking into a dealer with part no's in-hand than the "pulling teeth" to get the local parts-yokel to look it up on his computer.
These fit the FJR with little problem, will prolly fit my FZ6 commuter with similar ease. (they look like it)
