What style rear fenders do you like?

Thinking about picking up a 2012 or newer VRSCDX for a project bike but don't care much for the rear fender/seat. What style fenders do you guys think looks the best? aftermarket? stock?

Santeg did a Rocker C type set up. I love that look. If I had another bike for a project, I'd consider it. Looks very clean, especially with a wide tire.

I'll be working on this style (as soon as it snows)....with cut-down and chopped mudguards.

I haven't seen that style fender on a vrod before. Not my taste but the execution looks fantastic. I like something more along these lines.

I love Staneg's fender set up since it doesn't come off the tire like the others when using air ride shocks. Running progressive shocks my self and none of the fenders seems to give the same look.

IMHO: I like the nice clean lines in this one ... but would swing the mirrors under to clean up the front as well ... VERY NICE!!!

I'm in the same boat. Love my 2013 but the rear fender still hasn't grown on me. Moving the turn signals closer to the shock mounts really helped but still ehhh. Been thinking about switching to a older seat and shorter fender.

This one does the V the most justice but it's strictly solo.
