No one seems to make a rear hugger for the 12GS. Motorrad Concepts is no longer in biz. Anybody know a brand available in the US???
I'm shock shield on my OEM when I install my Wilber's , which will get plenty dirty without a hugger. I know a shock sock is an option, but a hugger would be better.

Yes, they are a bit pricey, but I'm putting on Wilber's and I want that pricey investment protected. The Wunderlich is nice looking and frankly there isn't anything else available on the market.
Many thanks!

That's pretty cool looking. Wish it was in English. No distributor in US?

If you click on your item of choice, and scroll down to the bottom of the page, you get a description in English, below the German, at least on the items i reviewed.

Thanks. Probably (target fixated) and missed the English.

Okay ... still missing the English. Fortunately, a couple of (non riding) German friends had a grand ole time translating motorcycle terminology from German to English. Laughing thru the translation, they congratulated me on my new dishwasher! Those Germans ... what a sense of humor.

Not a bad alternative.
In the end, I decided on a new shock/splash guard from Wunderlich. It's sold thru BMW Santa Cruz. $195 bucks and looks like OEM. Just came out and I managed to snag the first production model.

Here's a thread from UKGSer about rear huggers.

It will link you (see my post) to Adv Rider also discussing this.
