I've got a 2019 GS and 2019 R so I can swap the guard over and take a photo to show what it looks like if you like...? I've also got a hugger on my R, so it might look a little weird
THANKS HEAPS
Would be AWESOME to see !

I don't have buddies like that
YET

UNCONFORTABLE and a bad look (avoidable)

Function. Over FORM. (rather be dry/clean than a fashion VICTIM)

I have the Mud Sling mounted on mine. Doesn't perform the same function as a Mud Gaurd ?

I’d love to see it, to get an idea of how off-center it is.

Yet to find out
Wondering if I will need a front guard extender TOO
THINK I will wait and see
Believe the mud sling protects the shock from mud and shite build up

The mudsling protects the rear shock perfectly bus does not protect your back. The Ilmberger hugger also protects the rear shock and does a bit better job protecting your back. Negative side effect of the hugger (to me) is that I don’t like the looks and it makes a humming sound while riding. Therefore I went for the combination of the mudsling with the GS fender-thing. (Pictures on page one of this thread.

Sorry if I missed it in the thread but where did you order it from and who makes it. Thanks.

I live in The Netherlands and ordered the mudsling from a dealer in United Kingdom. The “rear fender” is an original BMW GS part which I bought from my local BMW dealership.

I see. I already have the mudsling so I just need the hugger. I'll get up with Bob's BMW to see if the 2016 GS ADV hugger will fit. Hope the weather over there is better than here in NW FL. Rain, rain and when it's not raining its 95 F plus with a million percent humidity!! Thanks. 👍
