    Protector ordered on Tuesday 24th July, arrived today Fri 27th, reasonably packaged, shame the courier company left it on the front doorstep, someone was home, obviously didn't know how to work a door bell push-button.  :151:
     
    Protector looks to be well made, it fits the contours of the Headlight, and the attachment fixings are a plastic version of Velcro, how good it is will have to be seen when the bike is on the move.  :084:

    Photo's of the protector and of the fixing material, on the edges of protector.

    An update on the headlight protector, it was fitted, and it is still in place, down side is I have only done around 10 miles on the bike in the last 4 months, due to a health problem that precluded me from riding the bike, only got the OK to ride again last week (04/09/18)  :152:
    All I can say is that after a short ride of 10 miles, with speeds only up to 50mph, there was no problem with the cover staying in place, I am hoping to do a longer ride in the next week or two, so I will post more info after that, watch this space.

    Please do keep us posted on how it stays on. With the vast expanse of plastic in the front, a little extra protection is in order to prevent rock chips/pits other things from marring the finish of the headlight assembly.
    Best wishes on the healing to get back to full riding soon.
