fact I stow mine in the same bum bag that my waterproof suit stows
into). Lightweight and very effective against high speed water.
Have an elasticated cuff which is half way up your forearm, so water
running down your sleeves can't get in.
The same goes for their overboots, although my Alt-berg boots are
entirely waterproof, so I don't need them. Again, I recommend
Alt-berg for stout traditional boots in the UK. Many styles,
manufactured in a small factory in Richmond Yorkshire, and the owner
rides a battered old BMW twin to work.

of an aftermarket shock. I have not gone that route yet with my 99, it
seems to work fine for me. I think if you dial in the suspension it really
helps. It also helps if you are used to riding in areas with a lot of wind.
Here a normal day is 10-20 with higher gusts. We regularly get 20-30 mph
days so crosswinds do not seem to me to be a problem with the Trophy. It
does catch a lot wind but always rights itself.
