I chose the BMW skid plate because it protects the oil filter and cooler, and it extends back and protects the catalitic converter. Most are too short.

I chose the SW-motech crash bars because they provide good coverage. Plus, they have highway peg mounts built in. F800Depot sell pegs that bolt right on. Those pegs are also the only all black pegs I've seen that are decent quality.
