Bar risers for 950

Hi,
New Inmate and proud owner of 950 Adventure in Silver ( Silver is obviously faster than Orange or Black.... )

Whilst recovering from a foot injury picked up during the recent Fantastic Rally of Discovery in Cyprus (Thanks V much Richie, Pat, Jerry etc)
I managed to drop a DR650 on my right foot during a steep right turn



Anyway, with three broken metatarsels and a K wire and broken ankle bone I thought now is the time for some internet shopping for my new toy. All help wecome.

1. As I am 6 feet 5 inches tall I thought bar risers would be a good idea. I have seen the KTM product online and wondered if anyone has used these or are there any other options out there? Any other rec mods for tall guys?

2. Will the Touratech luggage rack extension fit over the Gobi mounting bars? Are ther any other options?

3. Whilst comfortable and Waterproof my BMW Contur Plus boots did not do a great job of protecting my feet can anyone recommend something a little more robust?

4. Is the upgrade to Phillips Vision Plus blubs worth the effort?

Thanks in advance and any of you guys that have not tried the Rally of Discovery - Shame!

Ian
