First week with TT
« on: June 24, 2014, 02:37:01 am »
Good evening gents... I just finished a quick ride on my new TT ending my first week since taking it home.  I have put om about 600km and will be taking it in for the 800km service next week.  Each time I go out I like the bike more and more.  It handles well and i am getting more comfortable with the bike each ride.   I have one quick question... I have been reading about the crash bars that are available for the TT and wanted to know what people think about them?  Are they worth it?  Do the degrade the lines of the bike?  Do the offer solid protection should the bike be dropped?  I look forward to reading people's input.

I have them on my blue one and I think they kind of blend right in.  Not ugly at all, at least not to me.  I'm sure there are others that will disagree.  That's just a start, wait till you see the radiator guard, downpipe guard, etc, etc, etc.

I think you will find that most people on the forum think they are worth it.  Especially Coconut

From the forum general history, most drops have been while moving from stationary and positioned on a slope. So watch that one. 
Don't grow up, it's a trap...

I consider mine a $600.00 mounting bracket. I needed a place for freeway foot pegs and an easy place to mount and get to my dual horns.

I hope to never use them for more than a mounting bracket. They look fine, IMO, but makes it a little more work to remove the fairing.

Hi Scotty,

Yep - I certainly recommend them - If you read the story on those links posted by "w8d4it" you'll see why !

I also think they look good - and if you have a read through this guide :
HOW TO : Remove the Fairing and Fit R & G Adventure Bars 
you'll find out a bit more, and see a few Photo's of them fitted  :028:
