Here in OZ availability of radiator guards for the Tiger is slim at best so we're stuck with having to get either a local version that looks and weighs a ton - which is perfect for those guys that want to do a lot of dirt miles, or try and find a set via the Net. And of course the variety is wider but not everyone will sell to us due to the freight costs or it being just too hard to organise transport to the other side of the world. Add to that fact that the world's default search engine - Google - does not always present a reasonable selection so you can't assume that your particular guard will even appear on our monitors.
So it comes down to who has what sort of guards that meet the need that we can actually get hold of. Now the "need" is twofold - the guards obviously have to be functional but they also must match the buyers personal preferences in regards to appearance. When presented with the limited range of guards available I selected ones that meet both the criteria - for me. And that's not a slight at any particular manufacturer. The point is that it's not a matter of which guards are the ultimate selection but that guards are purchased because the prevent a major potential problem.
Indy, I apologise if it seems like I have offended your good will and I will send you a PM in explanation.
