I used to use Acerbis Rally Pros, but like a lot of people, find they end up bending after a few spills, and can look really tatty pretty quickly...

The Barkbuster mounting brackets and alloy spine bar seem ever bit as/even stronger than the Acerbis, and the Storm shields (available separately as spares btw.) give great coverage... I like to have my levers angled downwards (MTB style) and have found most hand guards aren't deep enough to have the alloy spine in-line to protect the levers and the shield your knuckles, but the Storms are ample in that respect... I'd recommend them for any dual-sport/adventure bike too, particularly in nasty weather!
