Got my crash bars here a few weeks ago also. No extra surprises to pull out of my wallet.

No taxes..

Received mine today in South Carolina, and no taxes applied. These things are exactly what I was looking for. Great protection, great fit, outstanding quality. Pics below.

Ordered mine late Tuesday night. They shipped first thing Wed morning and right now are in New York. Hopefully they will be here on Friday. I will say that I am extremely impressed with the shipping times. This is probably one of the most anticipated accessory I've been wanting for the bike. Glad I finally pulled the trigger and got 'em on the way.


Hey Ironman, which wolfman bag is that hanging off the bars in your gallery?


EDIT-> Got them today, Friday. Installed easily and looks awesome. I hope to never test them out! ADV-Spec - thanks for everything!

Wolfman Enduro toolbag

Its actually a toolbag that I had laying around from my DR350. Funny how it fit right into the space on the Adventure Spec crashbars with the attached straps. Now I just need to get one for the other side!!!

Got 'em

Just received my Adventure Spec crash bars. Ordered them on 12/12 and got them on 12/16. Not bad from Leeks England to Carson City Nevada! Very stout looking crash bar, only took about ten-fifteen minutes to install.

One (seemingly obvious) tip: If you order both the crash bars and bash plate, install the crash bars first.

Adventure-Spec

So after plenty of research from the great ADV rider forum. My friend and I chose some bling for our new F800GS bikes. Adventure Spec crash bars, skid plate, and bark busters for the bars. We are planning a trip to Mexico along the BC USA coast. So this gear will be of great use.
So we placed our order, and David Lomax e-mailed and said that they are backordered on the Bark Busters about 3 to 4 weeks. My reply to David was of sadness as our Canada Customs looks at gear after they have had it in their hands about 2-4 weeks them selves. So with the backorder we would be out of time before our trip. So I asked David to send what they had and the busters later.
So I get an e-mail today from David that they outsourced some Bark Busters for us and it will all be shipped out on Monday so we can get all of it for our trip. OMG that is great personal service! Thank you David Lomax and Adventure Spec for the wonderful service, we cannot wait to get our goodies.

Mike

busted oil pan

We finally got some good riding weather here and I guess my over zealous adventure monster took over and as I was coming down a pair of 18" stair step rock ledges and hit the skid plate HARD. within 100 feet the oil pressure light begins to flash. In my mind I came up with some audio to go with the red flashing oil can, DOH. Not much chance of a fix as there is a quarter sized hole by one of the bolt supports for the (bash) skid plate. I bought the skid plate and the crash bar combo from southwest moto. I was wondering in the back of my mind the logic of using the engine housing for part of the frame. just goes to show ya' . I can't blame anyone but myself for this one. The good news is the rims are fine Thanks <>< Craigster
