    B&B pipe guard and bash plate

    I received my new B&B Off Road Engineering products today for my Sherco 300 SEF-R. A new bashplate was designed at my request to protect the frame rail up and under the foot pegs. It's taken a year to organise, but I finally have it. Sarah at B&B Off Road Engineering was great at organising my request and keeping me informed on the progress. The products look and feel really solid. I'll be keen to mount them on the weekend.

    Goggles, are my eyes important?

    Reminds me of an incident I had many years ago when I was first starting out on bikes and didn't have all the gear, and I made the mistake of wearing sunglasses to a trail ride. Long story short, I cartwheeled the bike and landed face down on the handlebar end. The handle bar which had mud on it then punched out the lens of my sunglasses and proceeded to pack my eye with the mud. That ended with a trip to hospital to get the mud scraped out from under my eyelid. Fortunately there was no permanent eye damage, just a minor scratch to the lens. I have worn goggles ever since.

    I'll add to my previous post and say prior to using dual lenses I carried another set of goggles in my bag for wet or dust free rides. They have the foam removed along the top of the frame (someone else mentioned this earlier). It works a treat. I agree the Scott ACS lenses do scratch easily. I saw a video about a month ago promoting the Air Flaps. It's a good idea. There's still more risk than wearing dual lenses goggle's, but you'd be pretty unlucky if something come up and under the goggles and into your eye on the lower speed trails where you're more like to fog up.

    I couldn't agree more. I think my eyes are worth the investment in dual lens goggles. I have the Scott Hustle Enduro goggles with their ACS dual lens. https://www.scott-sports.com/us/en/product/scott-hustle-mx-enduro-goggle They're great and rarely fog up. I'm often the only one riding with goggles on when we are in the tight tracks on humid days.

    2015 Sherco 300 SEF-R Factory model. Back when she was new, shiny, and scratch free.

    B&B pipe guard and bash plate

    That's a good option. I'm not sure if I'll be able to take advantage of that as Sherco have done a deal with B&B (like they did with Force) where the public can't buy direct. We have to go through a Sherco dealer.
  7. Haha. Funny bugger. Awesome bikes though.
  8. Ha, surely you jest. First 450 across the line at Finke was a Sherco. Erzberg - 4th & 10th.

    Are you referring to Mario Roman?

    Bruised / Fractured Ribs

    Haha, that pretty much sums it up. I find it takes about 8 weeks for the pain to completely go away.

    Electric Start 125 Enduro.....

    If Sherco Australia include the 125 in their demo days, I'll be lining up to test it out. I have fond memories of racing 125's. They were lots of fun.
