After the Seven Mountains Dual Sport I realized that if I were to take part in another event like that, I had to have a headlight guard.
Because for some reason, unknown to me, some people absolutely HAVE to kick up a rooster tail every time they start from a stop on loose ground. If you happen to be behind this person, you WILL get pelted with debris. This debris could possibly break your headlight glass leaving you with a costly repair, or stranded until the sun rises if you planned on riding home in the dark.
All stainless steel (except for the side brackets)
The guard does diffuse the light a little bit, and it reflects a little light back at you.... but it removes easily if you happen to be riding at night for an extended period.
