Hello there almost a Strommer. Yah, the skid plate and crash bars....at least to look the part anyway! Knobby tires too.

I have a 2014 650DL and added SW Motech crashbars and Tourarech skidplate, when I bought her brand new which both were very easy to install. Finally replaced the stock rear tire after 2 punctures with the knobby Kinko tire she should do much better on my local fire roads. For my occasional night ride to work I added PIAA led driving lights....and a louder horn as the stock horn is terrible.
