Killer looks and more than ample protection.
I ride a 2006 BMW F650GS ABS. Bought this one over the Touratech guard because I preferred the appearance of it over said alternative. Installation was extremely easy (I encourage the use of Anti-seize lubricant, to make it easy to service your bike in the future), and took less than five minutes. It gives the bike a much more aggressive appearance, and from a simple 'grab' test, it appears to be extremely strong. The Touratech guard also mounts on the lower windshield bolts to increase rigidity, but honestly, I can't think of any impact this guard is liable to take against which it would be unable to defend (although admittedly I haven't tested it that severely as of yet). It does not noticeably diminish your headlight's output, or noticeably alter the beam pattern. All told, I'm extremely pleased with this purchase, and would certainly recommend it, or buy it again myself.
