     I know alot of you have posted before you are looking for the R&G crash bars. I found a place that currently has 5 in stock with free shipping

    Thanks for that.  Living in New Mexico they are my "go-to" online place for stuff as even with free shipping (I always seem to meet their minimums) I get deliveries in 2-3 days.  Still $555+ for the bars is too high for me.  Yes, I'm cheap thrifty.

     So am I. I want some, but really thinking over the $555.00.

    Maybe my insurance company will buy it for me  :745: to possibly prevent a future "TOTAL"

    Those R&G might save it from a tip over.  My bars bent following over when going up on the center stand (wet floor and foot slipped off stand when raising).

    It wasn’t until I bought another $500 set of crash bars for my second bike, BMW GS, did I realize how pitiful small the ttse bars are.

    A bar that bends is exactly what you want. You definitely DO NOT want all that energy transferred directly to your mounting points, which in our case, is the motor mounts.

    Maybe so, to a degree.  The lack of a rear mounting point contributes to even a minor drop allowing these to bend probably way before a motor mount would be compromised.

    Pretty much a moot point as there is no alternative to the R&G :002:
