I like the touratech radiator guards, they protect the radiator and the plastics from damage, while the others just protect the radiator. I have landed my bike at low and high speeds (and broke my wrist on one of those high speed falls), but the radiator and plastics around there have never had any problems, not even a scratch (but I have replaced the break OEM brake lever several times, and the clutch cover and lever too). Yes, I did break a bar on a fall on a very cold day after sliding on a ice and snow, but touratech replaced both free of of charge.
I even got the G-it bash plate to fit with the guards, just a small cutout necessary on one side.
