Headlight Protection

How prone to rock damage is the R1200RTW headlight? Replacements are $822. Cee Bailey's has a protector. Any others worth considering?

Pre-sold Bikes Held at the VP

Not good

On the camhead I've found pulling in the clutch and slowly applying pressure to the shifter makes for smooth N to 1st shifts. Not sure if it works on the LC motor.

On my R1200R I can ride over 5 hours on a tank (5.0 gal, 50 mpg and 45 mph average) but I have never actually done it.
