Anyone have a chance to compare the Holans and Hepco Beckers in person? I like how Holan has mounting points built in for driving lights, but the HB's lower guards seem to provide better engine protection.
I notice that you have DCT. Are both of the makes you mention available for the DCT model now?

Apparently the Touratech engine guards, in their early incarnations, caused damage to the DCT rather than protecting it (or at least one case was reported and went viral!) I think there is some electronic stuff at the edge of the DCT extended housing that can be whacked by bent bars...

I've heard (advrider I think) of a manual being dropped on the highway in Oz or NZ with the HB bars - and Barkbusters - and it mostly survived...
