    I had Heed crash bars on my 2012 tiger when I got hit this spring. They served their purpose well. I have been struggling with what to use on my replacement bike (2015 XCx). Due to the pandemic as some will know Heed has not been able to ship to the US. I was just about to pull the trigger on H&B Uppers. I got an email from Heed this morning that they are once again shipping to the US. Just sayin. Heed.jpg

    I can tell you the SW Motech are rock solid..... Not the easiest to install by yourself, but doable. I have tested them three times, one time at speed 35 MPH on gravel, bike was totally protected minus the signal light. [​IMG]

    Woah! We hate to hear about bikes going down, but glad to see you were well protected. Hope you came out of them relatively unscathed as well!

    Dude! A concussion is no good, but really glad you could walk away saying "Outside of that, magical." Ride on and ride safely!
