Happy Trails, while (in my experience) strong and utilitarian, never seems to give a thought to aesthetics. I know most dual-sports are kinda ugly anyway, but why make em uglier if you don't have to.

I don't have a pic to post, but I put GIVI bars on my Tiger 800. They mount to the cylinder mount in front, and to the rear engine mount behind the footpegs in the rear. I haven't tested them, but they look like they would protect the engine well enough. The radiator/tank shrouds, maybe not so much. I think I paid 180 or so for mine. They just baaaaarely fit behind the shifter linkage.
