Crash bars

Well, I took off to Reno today to bring my Triumph Tiger back home after it received its 12K service. While it was there I asked them to install some crash bars so that the next time I drop this bike in the mud and snow I won't scratch up my gas tank. I still don't plan on extreme off road riding, but at least I can feel a little more comfortable off the pavement knowing I have a little protection for the bike. I can also hang some lights and highway pegs on them for LD touring. The bars are made by Touratech?? or something that sounds like that.

Re: Crash bars

What highway did you travel? How were the conditions?

Last year I rode to Quincy for breakfast and on to Lake Tahoe on 89.
Superbowl Sunday is very quiet on the roads!

Hope the bars work well, I like the idea of highway pegs on them.
Good for leverage if you do fall in mud or dirt.
