    I traded my 2004 1150GS for a new 2012 GS last year and am in the market for crash bars. Wunderlich carries the HP bars, but for considerably more money you can get the Touratech (~$390) or Altrider ($457) crashbars and like the HP you can get them in black.
    Does Anyone have any experience with this more expensive crash bars? Supposedly the Touratech are the bestselling crash bars.
    thanks, paul w.

    I can confirm this also, my buddy just recently pulled this left bolt, tried to put it back in and it must have cross threaded and BROKE! now we need to pull shaft out and try to machine it out or spend 125$ for a new one :eek1

    SW Motechs are a bit soft,been through two sets. Last set twisted up like a wind blown owl in a barb wired fence... H&B are super solid and take a beating, hands down the top of the food chain.
