I would love the sway bar for the highway miles and twisty mountain roads I do but I drag the skid plates on rocks regularly on the sidecar and the bike so I really do not think it would last very long under my rig. I had two reasons for putting the steel plate on the sidecar frame one was ballast and the other was to protect the passenger tub because I hept scraping the fiberglass on rocks while off roading.
You can get bar backs and foot peg relocation kits for the K1200S and I keep looking at the ad thinking about it but I really want a K1200GT. There was a K1200RS rig a year or so ago that was on ebay that I was bidding on but it got to be more than I was willing to spend. Too bad because I guess it was one of three that a guy named Sheldon built in Canada as I recall. Claude was telling me about it at the time.
