The two things I want to get are the engine guard extensions and steering stabilizer.

I am looking at the engine guard extensions also, which one are you looking at?

I plan on buying the adventure Designs guards.

Until then I limit how much I take it offroad.

Well after much discusion it looks as though I will be ordering the lower crash bar extensions.

Is there any preference out there on SW Motech vs Adventure Designs???

I only have experience with the Adventure Designs ones, but they are nice and solid.

That's a wine fridge IIRC from a previous post of the bike's owner.
