Default G2 Moto Hand Shields

G2 Ergonomics has a product reviewed that sounds pretty good.

check out: http://g2ergo.com/shop/catalog/Moto-...ields-228.html

For us long distance riders who ride a lot in the rain, I was thinking something like this would keep the majority of water off our gloves and possibly keep them drier over a longer period of time.

I've heard good reports of similiar farkles on FJR's and VStroms.

Just thinking out loud. Perhaps if we get enough interest, I could setup a group buy.

Let me know if anyone is interested here in this thread.

I looked into hand guards early. They can allow you to drop at least one weight level of glove in the cold and they allow you to dodge a lot of rain.

Two things to keep in mind if you are looking at installing guards.
The ST is very handle bar challenged. There is not much room to bolt anything to the handlebar because of it's design.
On those without risers the levers get real close to the dash. Space will be an issue parking the bike and if you use the steering lock.

If someone would come up with a clever way to mount and keep them out of the dash I'd be interested.

I tried the BMW hand guards (still have them) they blocked the mirrors too much.
V-Strom hand guards are supposed to work but I haven't tried them.

Hi,
I'm still new to my 2006 ST1300 (only had it less than a week but done 2000km).
I was thinking about hand guards my Transalp has them and so did my ex-FJR.

But as I suspected they will block mirrors and other important stuff. I also do moto-gymkhana and rodeo so don't really want to block the bars.

I was riding along and the temp guage was telling me it wasn't freezing - just. My thought was is there an addon to the mirror or above as a wind deflector on the frame?

Yes, Honda makes a Wind Deflector kit for both the mirrors and the side panels. You can probably order them from your local dealer but, there are also online places to order them.

Before you order hand guards go out and turn your handlebars to full lock on both sides. I think you will find the dash assemble is in the way.
I seem to recall several tried to fit V-Strom guards on their ST and found they would bang the dash.

The Honda deflector set does a fair job of moving the air, better in moving the rain, but you will be better off with a slightly wider shield if your simply trying to move air. Slightly is the key. You get too wide and the deflector set will not fit, if you ever want them, and you will pay a price in fuel mileage if you get carried away with the size of the shield.
