I like these boots. A great value for a boot that can double as a hiking shoe. I purchased the boots we a little extra room and wear a good quality hiking/boot sock.

This is my wife's first modular helmet and she liked it on her first ride as soon as she realized she had to take out her ponytail. Excellent quality.

AltRider Engine Protection Crash Bars for BMW K1600 GT/GTL The BMW K1600 GT/GTL is a beast of a bike that requires hefty support to stand up to its size. This beauty has been receiving glowing reviews, and RevZilla is proud to carry AltRider's quality engine protection bars. AltRiders in-house design team took a careful analysis of the center of gravity of the bike, and the ability to distribute the robust load on impact. In the case of an accidental tip-over, the cross bar distributes the load from one side to the other, relieving pressure from the existing mounting points to the other side of the bike. The connector bar adds significant strength to the design, effectively connecting into the threaded and blind boss on each side which provides 2 more locations for distributing impact. The assembly for these engine protection bars is moved out 1.75 and up 2 from the original OEM design. Two reasons for this unique design change This design provides a higher resting angle when the bike is on its side, allowing a rider to pick the bike up after it falls on its side. Unlike boxer motors, the K1600 will lie almost flat, making it difficult to even pick up the bike. The higher point of the bar will stop the bike from rolling over further, making it manageable for a single operator to upright the bike. This will minimize the damage to the upper fairings, windshield, mirrors, and handlebars. The current OEM engine bars are placed very low on the frame and become a pivot point causing a falling bike to continue to topple over onto the upper fairings. AltRider's design halts this problem with the enlargement of the AltRider bars, preventing the bike from rolling over further in any crash or stationary drop. Features Manufactured in America Stunning shot peen finish in silver or black Precision manufactured mounts bolts up effortlessly Hand TIG welded, yielding extra strength Quality stainless construction resists rust or oxidation 1 inch stainless steel tubing

Overall I really like the Alt Rider engine guards on my K1600 GTL. The appearance and quality are excellent and appear to offer adequate protections of the bike although I don't plan on testing this feature out anytime soon. I purchased this primarily for mounting point for my highway pegs and stretch out my legs a bit on long rides. I also love the light mounting points and the protection the lights have from the bar.
Installation was a bit challenging because where the left side inserts into the right side the length is a bit to long and prevented proper alignment, It required filing off about 1/8 to a 1/4" of the inner tube to get the proper fit. Without a grinder and using a hand file it took an extra 45 minutes. I like the produce very much and would give an excellent rating other than the installation issue.
