Yeah it was a bit of coin, but good protection. The SWMotech center stand is the only one that works with the Touratech bash plate. I actually got over 3000 miles out of the rear TKC 80 fully loaded sliding around corners on Top of the World.
The touratech crash bars are already in my shopping cart. I told myself I wouldn't get into anything messy before getting them on the bike but, oh well, couldn't stop myself.
Not quite sure I need a bash plate yet.. But probably before my trip out west next summer. Definitely will be getting a SWMotech center stand though.
I'd also love to get some knobbier tires like those TKCs but I do way too much pavement riding.. I just need to avoid mud I guess
