The crash bar extension from Touratech has effectively protected the expensive fairing on Petra’s bike. It also protects the radiator and the upper part of the forks. I so wish I had had this crash bar extension on my bike when I had my head-on collision in the Himalayas. I’m sure it had saved me a lot of hassle and money as my fairings on both sides, headlight, windscreen, etc were damaged and need to be replaced.
The crash bar extension is made from stainless steel, so no need to worry about corrosion. The crash bar extension is also perfect for attaching/mounting smart luggage solutions, bottle holders, GoPro etc.
Pros & Cons
- Good protection for the fairings
- Stainless steel
- Gives the bike a nice look
