Crash guards/skid plate/centerstand recommendation?
Yet another newb (pre-purchase) question (I'm going to do the deal on a new 07 ABS Saturday, and want to figure out my options beforehand):
The 650 I test-rode today had a set of black crash bars and a silver aluminum skid plate attached - unfortunately I didn't get the brand. I'm going to want to add a center stand too - whether I buy the bike with the crash gear already on it or add my own.
Are there stands, crash bars or skid plates to avoid? I gather the Motech stand is a favorite, but are there some skid plates that don't work with it?
