Hello there, I am new to the forum and hope you are all doing great. I owned a F800ST for 10 years and recently traded it in for a new R1250GS. I literally just put the first 150 miles in the past two days with a combination of highway and country roads. This is simply a dream bike.
I am in the process of selecting crash bars for the cylinder heads and also upper side areas. I am looking at the SW-Motech which look really great but they may be too much for my riding needs as I am not planning to do any dirt riding (I know..sorry about that) as I mainly ride on asphalt.
The crash protection I am looking for is mainly for advanced training at the (asphalt) range and the...rarely...oops I dropped the bike on the driveway.
I was thinking of the Wunderlich lower crash bars which look less bulky and lighter than anything else I have seen. Should I forgo the upper side areas crash bars? I figure the less weight up there the better...right?
I've been looking closely at the Altrider bars. They appear to have a very solid design. I'm mostly into twisty roads, but I may take mine off road eventually. I'll probably add the upper crash bars later. Made in the USA, too.
