Bodywork protection
« on: March 04, 2021, 12:53:40 PM »
I am thinking of getting something to protect the bike in case of mishap, you know, gravel under the supporting foot, diesel on roundabout etc....
I have noticed short points on bungs and bars.  What are people using bungs? bars? what brand?  There seems to be a lot of price difference. are 100 pound bars 75% less effective than 400 pound ones??? etc.  Input gratefully received

Hi Eftan - as I have no intention of going off road I went for R&G crash bungs front rear and centre.
Luckily, touch wood, I cannot testify to their effectiveness

Was that cost motivated,  or low profile? seriously asking  why choices are made to inform me, not as criticism etc.

Bit of both really - scanning forums bars are better for off road, in my opinion not good looking, and expensive - just my opinion however

How about sharing some photos of the crash bungs?
Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight
