I installed my Adv-Spec crashbars today:

I'm not wild about the looks. They stick out a bit farther than I'd like, visually. (Woodworks, I think you might've been right....) The bars are about two inches from the radiator shrouds. Once you get the panniers on it all looks more balanced. I haven't had the guts to lay my bike over on its side yet to see how she'll rest, but eyeballin' it sure looks like they'll do the job functionally. They are seriously beefy.

The bars went together easily and well. Everything fit, and the instructions were superb, except for the omission of one torque setting which was "per the manufacturer's specifications." Probably the best way to do that, but it'd be nice to have it all on one sheet.
