Looks like you have removed the wrong front mud guard too, it is the top beak that does nothing but create noise and turbulence.

Without the lower lets just hope you never have to ride in the rain or mud, probably nut a problem East Yorkshire , it never rains there, right?

I will tell you Roy, that even with both mud guards I was getting pelted in the face mask with quartz sand particles riding on a wet Florida sand road. That front lower fender would need to almost wrap the front tire like the old Indian motorcycles to keep that from happening.

I am fortunate that in the driest state in the driest continent I have the choice to not do mud.
But not sand!
It might seem strange but in this vast sparsely populated state there is very little public land where off road riding is permitted, outside the central desert where there is neither water or fuel so tires are the least of your worries. And most of that is a restricted area too, for whatever reason!
Almost all our " off road " riding is on what were surveyed public roads or fire tracks, some well graded and compacted gravel with a bit loose stuff on top, some disused apart from walkers and bike riders and in pretty poor condition, but none need either a off road bike or "off road" tires.

So 50/50 tires like Mitas E07's or Metz Enduro 3 Sahara's work fine , and are actually better on gravel covered hard pack than big blocks or big knobs .
And with them and short road style mudguards there seems little splash/spray back. At the modest speed that I drive at, anyway!

Most of the guys who come in covered with mud are on dedicated off road bikes with high front guards and moto cross tires, and they have set out to find some puddles somewhere to splash in, usually on private land, as in this state land with access to water is usually highly valued farmland!
