Heed crash bars and skid plate

Ok so, I don't normally do this on any of the forums I'm a part of, but I had such a positive experience with the Heed products I purchased for my wee I just had to share it. If any of you are looking for crash bars, skid plate or a center stand I definitely recommend at least giving these guys a shot. I think they are out of Poland so it does take a few weeks to get I think about a week and a half for me but it was well worth the wait! High quality, absolute best bang for your buck (imo) super easy install (instructions are pretty much like solving a puzzle but for a slightly mechanically inclined individual it's not bad) took me about 2.5 hours to fully install, that's even including the horn bags which were probably the most aggravating thing to install lol. Again these may not be to everyone's taste but just thought I'd pass my experience along.

Also if any of you do check them out and like what ya see and like me wanted all four of their products for the wee in one shipment just send them a message through eBay and they can help ya out. I'm pretty sure they even knocked a little off of the overall price with the combined order!

Can you post pictures of it installed? I just saw these online and like the way they look over the OEM and Givi models. Do they feel like they are strong enough to provide protection? The look like they sit higher than other brands.

Sorry for the late response to all you guys, for some reason Tapatalk didn't notify me someone replied to this thread or (more likely) I didn't see it .....I'll post some pics as soon as I get some good ones taken....the ones I have you can't really see the stuff because it was dark lol. And a horn bag is little bags that go on the empty space in the crash bars.

Here's a link to the package I bought from them which includes the skid Traumadiver...

They are strong, full transparency I don't have experience with any of the other brands besides what I've seen in person on other bikes, but these are well made products for sure. I do have experience with crappy made products as I have a Jeep with many aftermarket parts on it, and trust me the build quality ranges from pretty good to really really bad! And these are really good lol
