Yep. The Altrider is the ticket for me. It's the last farkle on my list to get. I have done everything else but the sump. At $300 it is quite pricey but it protects better than all of the others.
The OEM sump guard does not protect the oil filter. And the Touratech oil filter guard is better than no guard at all but still leaves the filter exposed in a few places.
