Best Engine and Bag Protection Bars
Just got a real gently used K1600 GT, but unfortunately, as it's still pretty much new, it didn't come with the engine protection bars that I see on a lot of the 1600 series bikes. I've been looking at a few, and have seen BMW's own version, plus several others including Wunderlich, Ilium works, and even this version from an Italian company, Isotta, which seems to be a great price on one if it's a rugged as it looks. I also noticed the Altrider ones, which come out more and have brackets to mount lights on, though I don't know if I need more lighting yet. They also go from one side to the other, which seems like it would give more support. I know some of them have a provision for or come with some highway pegs, but that is not a big concern of mine as, like on the bike I traded in on this, a K1200 LT, they are not set up really well for those, and it is pretty uncomfortable to ride that way anyway. Are there others out there that I've missed? The best bag protectors for the rear of the bike I see appear to be Wunderlich, but they are pricey, and another guy is selling some homemade version, but they don't look as good as the Wundelich. Are there any other options for those?
