Over the last 5 days I’ve been riding the new liquid cooled GS over the rainy, foggy mountains of the Canaan Valley in West Virginia testing myself and a prototype of the upcoming MachineartMoto Avant GS_LC front fender extension.
This Avant will be the latest in our line of front fender extensions for BMW’s and the GS-LC really needs one. The front fender is even shorter than on the previous generation GS assuring that the painted front surface of the engine will soon become pock-marked from stone chips and covered in road tar without protection. In the West Virginia mountains there are plenty of gravel patch surprises in the curves and the Avant worked well to preserve the surfaces. We’ve reduced the number of hardware attachments from 3 to 2 to make it very simple to install and it remained solid throughout the trip. The Avant GS_LC will be available in early July.
