    Considering fitting ‘bars and would like to know who’s fitted what and their opinion of the product they bought :-
    Ease of fit, quality and value for money, and just how robust they are/appear ?
    Thanks

    I had the Ducati crash bars fitted from new but when I first saw my bike with them fitted I immediately regretted it as they spoiled the look. They also make it harder to clean the bike. Don't know how much protection they offer and I hope not to find out  :155: They are good quality though and have stood up to the ravages of salty roads so far.
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

    Know what you mean, bought mine with touring pack and considered Enduro kit at the same time but it’s just so bloody gorgeous I didn’t want to spoil the bikes looks 🙄 but then again I don’t want to spoil them in other ways either.  If I don’t fit bars and then prang it 😱
    The alternative is to fit R&G all over the place but I also want to fit auxiliary lights as main beam isn’t the best 🤔
