Thanks, I've always disliked it visually but I really didn't like it on wet roads. No protection at all. Buddy of mine rides a 30k customized HD and he dropped way back on a damp road, I kidded him asked if he was having a hard time keeping up and he said no but the 15ft rooster tail of spray water off my back wheel was drowning him. My backside always got wet before the front with the old fender. It's raining this morning and I may have to give her a test ride when it stops to see how the new fender does on wet roads.
Honestly, I don't think it changed my riding position noticably. Maybe a half inch, if that. I'm 6'2" so leg room is certainly a concern of mine. The seat is MUCH firmer so it takes a little time to get used to but it is more comfortable.

I have never heard them referred to as a Duck butt before.
Personally I like that style reminds me of the old KZ's. Thats what
the 1600 Marauder has on it. I wish the one you took off would be a direct fit
on my Meany I'd ask if it was for sale...
