Well, i'm on my second pair of ADV spec, and as ugly they maybe because of the gap between them and the fake tank, it's just enough clearance to protect the handlebar from damage on a drop.

I think I am going with the exact same skid/bash combo on the same orange bike. Thanks for the preview, are you happy with both?

Anyone have a picture with their legs in the free Givi "highway bars"?

Crash Bars

Those look nice. They seem to offer good coverage and aren't as big as my Adv Spec bars. Nice looking color scheme as well on that 800.

I ordered the Givi's today. The price was right and i like how they do not interfere with the lines of the bike above the frame area.

I tested my Touratech crashbars yesterday. I crashed the bike when crossing train tracks. My front wheel slipped and hit the asphalt at 40 km/h.

Damage to the bike:


Those touratech pannier racks protected my rear very good.

Doesn't look like it did that great a job of protecting the plastic.

Crash Test

They did a pretty good job. Only cosmetic so definitely a win. In a lot of the videos of people checking their crash bars they lay the bike on its side on some carpet and the plastic doesn't touch. Of course in a real fall things happen differently and many times the wheels end up in the air or the ground isn't flat. One of the reasons I like Adventure Spec bars. They go way up the sides and mine have scratches and gouges at the very top that would certainly be on the plastic. The downside is they can touch you knees if you have long legs and some folks don't like the looks. Where the tracks at an angle to the road, I hat those crossings!

Agreed that not all crashes are simple lay-downs...but what does the last sentence mean? I get that hat = hate, but still don't understand

Edit to say never mind! I get it now. I didn't read the reason for Lucifer's crash closely enough the first time.

+1 for adv spec. multiple 'downs'. the last one landed me in the hospital with four ribs no longer in an optimum configuration.





jesse's also offered impact protection and save expensive plastic bits


however i do not recommend the instrument cluster as crash protection



urine cup even survived if not a little 'out of wack'

Dang man! Getting out of that with just some misconfigured ribs is a win in my book!

Hat

You know those crossings where the rails cross the road at an angle. Can be tricky, especially when wet. Can't type with these mini-keyboards...
