A good solution for the BMW R 1200 GS is AltRider's Crash Bars. Engineered from 1 inch stainless steel, these bars will hold up and protect the engine in a fall. They're designed with precision-manufactured mounts that fit directly into the strongest points on the frame. By utilizing these mounting points and existing hardware, the AltRider set increases protection because it actually bolts through the 12mm engine mount, instead of hanging onto the engine using flanges or vulnerable tabs. That means in a crash, impact is directed away from the cylinders and the engine case and toward the strongest parts of the frame.
