Tank protection

What do people use to protect their tanks these days?

Specific areas I always used to protect are on the back where your jacket rubs and on the side where your knees rub.

And I guess I'll have to think about branch and bush impacts on the plastics too...

TIA.

Love that video - it looks like he makes a right pig's ear of putting the film on that mudguard and then they cut him to him polishing a nicely installed one!

I notice there are a few guys over on advrider using an eBay tank protector - and I notice True Ad Venture has just got one too! Are they any good? I have a tricolour like most of the people who have it - it seems to be a good match but quite large...

They have some crash bars in the pipeline too - not sure about them either!

was hoping ventureshield will come out with a kit as the tank does mark quite easily
