Does anyone have any input on what handguards would mount on a 09 R1200R? I would like ones that have two points of attachments and not one that just attaches at the bar ends.

AUX lights

I own a '12 GSA and i feel like my AUX lights are in a good spot. How do the new '14 owners feel about them being lower and farther back? Also are the tucked in any more in the event of a dirt crash?
