AltRider Crash Bars BMW R1200GS The BMW motor is powerful yet wide, and you want to protect every inch. Wrap that 1200cc gem with our 1 inch stainless crash bars. AltRider set the bar high on this product. Durable and well engineered, the AltRider crash bars are built with precision-manufactured mounts that fit directly into the existing motor mount. Also, integrates well with the AltRider Upper Crash Bars (sold separately), for even more crash coverage. By utilizing the R 1200 GSs robust frame mount and incorporating the existing frame hardware, AltRider designed a quality piece that will protect your motor. Unlike other crash bars, these do not use flanges or weak tabs and are not hung: they are actually mounted. Made with a shot peen satin finish means that even when the bike takes a spill, the stainless bars will never show signs of rust. These crash bars deflect the impact from the cylinders and engine case to the strongest parts of the frame. Unlike other manufacturers, our design provides plenty of clearance around the vulnerable left oil line. It also serves double-duty as a boot rest on long rides! Save yourself hassle and frustration and the purchase of a 200 valve cover by installing AltRider crash bars. Take a moment to review the instructions. The reason we mention this here is to make you aware which mount points on the R 1200 GS have strength. Stainless construction fights corrosion and rust Hand TIG welded crash bars are 1 inch diameter for additional strength Manufactured in America Refined satin peen finish Comes with the Torx bit needed for installation Removal required for valve adjustment

The engine bars looks great, I chose the red finish to match my 2012 frame & fits like an original BMW part. All needed hardware is included & instructions are very goo. Very pleased thus far.

I tried many boots until I found the pair that fit my foot best. My left foot is slightly wider than the right and the other boots I tried had a narrow toe box area. I wanted the h2o protection of Gore tex so my choices were limited. I wanted protection without having the bulk of the Enduro/Adventure boots. This boot fits well, lots of adjustment, comfortable to walk in & has only taken a few hours to break in. I am an 11.5-12 shoe size & the 12 fit perfectly. I look forward to many great years riding with my Sidi Canyons...
