    This would be nice.  I had bars around my panniers on my Harley, and T-Rex makes something similar for the Triumph Explorer https://t-rex-racing.com/catalog.php?item=1305  (Which I intend to by for my Explorer.)

    I doubt that given the demise of the Trophy and the relatively small numbers of Trophy's in the field that anyone will spend a significant amount of money to engineer and produce a good product.  Owning a Trophy is like having an orphan disease.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my Trophy, and will ride it until this old body can't anymore, but quality aftermarket products are few and far between.

    MC Enterprises is the same company that makes Canyon Cages. A couple of us on this forum contact them to see about engine guards for the Trophy. No word yet.

    No offense to anyone who wants these, but what is their purpose? If you tip the TTSE over? I don't think anyone is off roading with their TTSE :112:

    I stuck these on my panniers:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00W98EG8S

    I figure they might possibly keep the pannier lid from kissing the tarmac hard in a soft static lay down.  Any other off more violent than that, there will likely be more damage than just minor scratches and I'll let my comprehensive insurance cover it.

    I'm just not a big fan of bathroom bars on my bikes, even though they can be useful.  Besides, I rarely use the panniers anyway, so riding around with just the bare bars would be kinda dorky.
