Tip over bars/engine guards
on: April 04, 2021, 01:17:56 AM
Howdy, all,

Having just purchased a 2019 1000 and having dropped my share of bikes over the years, I'm wondering what folks are putting on their rides and what kind of protection they're getting. I had front and rear bars on the Concours but I haven't seen anything like that, so far. The best I have found is the Hepco & Becker. Would appreciate hearing from someone that has them mounted. Do they protect everything on a drop or low speed get off or does something get sacrificed, like the bags, handle bars, etc? Also interested in other options that provide good to excellent protection.

As always, thanks in advance,

Jack

I asked the same thing a while back, this was the thread

t rex looked like a pretty solid deal to me, front and back set for about 350 from their website

Thanks for the pointer. I have a little more research to do but so far agree with you on the T-rex setup.
