Ower all this pages ... hm ... I only know that for April Marocco trip I should order something to protect my bike. Now I am in thinking regarding SWM or OTBACK. Engine guards and skide plate too

Just had an off. Foolishly thought I have been riding so long without an off that I thought I was bullet proof. A case of not if , but when. Lost it in the loose gravel on a bend while trying to avoid a washout. Dont remember much about crash but ended up about 2m in front of the bike. Must have highsided it broke my left ankle. Dont know if the bike came down on top and I escaped under neath it as it slide or I flew and landed on my leg. Anyway luckily had cell phone coverage and got help. Had a trip to Dunedin Hospital in the helicopter and my ankle was operated on 2 days later. 3 bones broken and I am on crutches for 3 months. Bike lost a bit of cosmetic stuff like fairings but BarkBusters saved all the levers and mirrors. My son rode it home. Would crash bars have saved my ankle if the bike came down on top of me?

They would certainly help your bike as for your ankle probably not so much,sorry to hear you got injured that sucks,I broke my ankle playing hockey last winter so I know that injury is no joke,I hope you have a quick recovery

Just installed SW Motech bash plate. Installation was easy and took only about 30 mins. And yes, it fits with the Honda OEM center stand. With SW Motech bash plate the oil change is possible without removing the bash plate (openigs for oil plugs) but changing oil filter the bash plate need to be removed.

For crash bars I chose Outback Motortek, that weight about 2 kg less than SW Motech. Good weight - protection -ratio. Not installed yet. Will instal the McCruise first. Even if the fairings should be possible to remove without uninstalling the OM crash bars.

How much?
Pricewise the Rumbux were very reasonable, but getting them sent out here to Oz ended up pretty much doubling the price thanks to the various freight fees and customs clearance charges involved. On balance the price probably worked out about the same as if I'd purchased a set of H & B or Touratech (plus bash plate) locally. For anyone living in South Africa it would be a no-brainer though because they are well made, do the job, and come with a bash plate standard.

Today I was looking arroun and ordered SW Motech bash plate, centre stand, cras bar and Kobra hand guards. The offer was impossible to refuse.

Did I do something wrong?

Now what is missing only the bike ... nothing important ...

Tricolor HRC 2017 , HD Street Bob, HD Low Rider ... Marocco trips each year ...
