Public Service Announcement - Rear Fenders
I know motorcycles are risky deathtraps and that's part of the appeal. I am a fan of minimalist barely legal or maybe not quite legal rides, but rear fenders are important. It was 70 degrees here today and I saw two motorcycles running down the road with no fenders at all. Running without a front fender means water and dirt might hit you, no big deal. If you're running a tiny seat and no rear fender, one nasty bump and your posterior will be between the rear wheel and the frame. It would be very unpleasant to wind up castrated in such a fashion.
