Honestly look at the Rugged Road crash bars, built like a brick sh*t house and very good value. They come out a decent way so with those and barkbusters they form a protective area which keeps the nice shiny bodywork off the floor if dropped.

Note* if you use the RR crash bars with an Altrider Skid Plate then a small modification to the skid plate is required in two places, no big deal took me about 20 minutes to modify with a hacksaw and a file.

Also worth noting the Altrider Skid plate WILL FIT with the Arrow Full Titanium Exhaust System. When I contacted Altrider in November they didn't know if this would work or not as they hadn't tested it.

Off topic for this thread, but how easy was the Altrider skid plate to install?

Very easy - one frame bolt is done up very tight on the right side of the bike which needed an extension bar but other than that 30 min job.

I put the toura tech ones on mine, top and bottom, had them powder coated prior to installation and I am pretty happy with them. I know the guys who have been waiting on the ones from ALT Rider are still waiting. I have a friend who has some on order and he has not got them yet.

Thank you and have a blessed week

Okay, I've searched this post and the forum and can find no mention of Heed crash bars. They come from Poland. Can anyone recommend them?

that skid plate looks awesome and super well built. How much weight did it add though? Did it come painted or did you paint/powder coat it?

Dave, BIG fan of the videos! Keep em coming! Since I don't have my AT yet, I'm living vicariously through your updates. Whats the deflection like on the toura tech bars? it seems to me like all the crash bars available for the AT would all bend enough to hit or break the side fairings, since there isn't a good upper mounting point. If your bike fell do you think that toura tech bars would be able to hold it, without touching the fairing?
