Those two and real hand guards and you are good to go. Just research what you buy for a skid plate and how they mount to the bike.Thanks for the info, actually that's what I'm thinking as far as keeping the DR, I also have a single track weapon when those times come about. Of course, as with many, my toy box, needs to get bigger as I'm also housing my two son's bikes. Maybe the time will come to part ways with the DR, but not in the foreseeable future.
As far as protection, crash bars and skid plate sufficient? Or are there other areas that also need attention?
I have a Rumbux on mine. It is one of the few systems that doesn't connect directly to the engine. They are out of business now. I am not sure what is out there now, since the Rumbux went on my bike back in 2013. If you are only going to be riding easier stuff it probably doesn't matter what you use. I would search around on here and see what people are using these days:Any suggestions as far as brand or what I should look for in a skid plate?
