    I'd rather have no fenders than a large majority of autistic fender mounting attempts I see on MANY custom bikes

    for example, It is seldom I see an ol boy Triton that one quick peek doesn't reveal that frail pretty junk will do well to make it on and off the show trailer a time or two

    like one posted here and recently

    take that machine with "provenance" out and beat the hades out of it for a few months

    see which fender ends up wound around the bike somewhere first

    it's pretty though

    my bet is that thin flimsy POS which all but shaves the front tire will go first but that 14 inches of unsupported rear doesn't look promising and I've been around enough of them to know that ol boy 34 buck rear fender loop is puppy pee weak and useless....... and from there back the thing will wraggle like a meth'd dog's tail

    My 900ss has no front fender right now.

    That annoys me.

    But not enough to leave the bike sitting in the garage.

    I'm working on fixing the stock one. Or finding a new one.

    I lack a front fender . It's all personal preference . Like clubman bars .
    Some bikes look good without fenders . But if you're front fender acts as a brace and you take it off for looks for the cost of handling that there is dumb .
    If they call a sheep a ram.
    And a donkey an ass.
    Why do they call a ram in the ass a goose?
