1. Crash bars - a must as you have a big blob of plastic around the rad that is the first to hit the sand if you crash. Plus the rad is only suspended by a plastic tab on the bottom so a fairly light dump will break that and your rad will be hanging from the hoses until you get back to fix it.
What are your crash bars of choice? There is no small amount of debate on this particular point! Thanks again for sharing your real-world experiences.
