Stretched side covers

Hello I'm very interested in some stretched side covers, I think they make road glides look pretty sleek. I know a bunch of companies are making them, and I really like the ones from sinister but are over 400 and still need paint. Arlen Ness and Mutazu make some stretched ones already painted gloss black for under 200, I was wondering if anyone has a pic of these installed on their bike? I would really appreciate it, I heard they're not as sleek as sinister or bad dad but I would like to see them. Thank you

I had the Ness covers on my bike. They rivet or screw to stock covers. Kinda cheap and crappy especially compared to sinisters. I have some pics in my gallery you can check out. Pickard and Nassi make good covers too. The Sinister ABS covers are super thick and tough

The Pickards worked well for me, they're glue on but install in very straight forward, never had any issues and they didn't take away any of the ol lady's foot room

GB, will Pickard side covers work with the MGS exhaust coming out of the left side?

Yessir! All that was needed was a little trimming and everything cleared just fine. R&R of the side covers was a little tight but I was able to do it regularly without scratching them

On a side not, for anyone thinking about stretched side covers on a newer framed bike. most are not setup to clear a traditional style true dual, they're setup up for the newer cross under style exhaust.......
