Vagabond tail tidy installed on F

I got the tail tidy from vagabond - went on pretty easily after reviewing the video.

Honestly though I hesitated at first because the F model actually looks better with a longer rear deck to balance the longer fairings but the tail tidy shortens it.

The tail tidy looks much better on the naked bikes. Just me or anyone else think so?

I guess it'll grow on me.. Any better looking tail tidy for F?

Btw if youre installing the same tail tidy the video omits a step to put some heavy grease to hold the 4 bolts in place while you hold and bolt the entire thing up along with the wires. I didnt grease it at first and one of the spacer dropped, rolled along the wheel and landed on top of the chain behind the guard. Took me a long time to find it.

I don't think any bike looks good with the stock tail

I have an F and would not put a tail tidy on it, It really doesn't look that much better to me on this bike, but even if it did, I wouldn't put one on because of functionality. I ride enough on wet roads that I don't want crap thrown all over my back, tail light, shock, etc. A tidy tails look nice on most naked bikes, but I don't think it improves the look of the F and for functionality it sucks.

Do you need glasses? The stock tail is the most hideous piece of plastic!
