No Fender

As I enjoy a beverage or four, I got to thinking, has anyone even run without a fender in the front? I guess rocks and rain would kick up (I remember having a small one on my Vrod in the rear created a rooster tail and my back would get wet in the rain). But right now, I am thinking about the front. Some of the hugger front fenders can't do much for rocks and rain anyway. I may have to play around with photo shop. Thoughts or pics?

On the next beverage or 4 day you have, take it off. See what you think first hand.

Don't need a beverage to take it off.

Just wondered if anyone has run like that (and I'm thinking folks with a 21 or larger wheel). Because most of the fenders seem to get slimmer and fit better to the wheel, so you see more of the wheel.

I ran it that way for about 3 weeks, or so, while one of my fenders was out at paint......I had zero issues and as you can see, I have a gravel driveway LOL
