    Having dealt with the Hepco crash bars over the years with slight fitment issues, and pretty much failing in function with anything other than a parking lot tip-over, I engineered and built a superior version and am making them available on our online Store >HERE< - Pics below.
    Fit is mindlessly good, and superior in strength as we use lasso the frame stud for the top mount, rather than the fragile M5 bodywork bolt. Made of .120" wall 4130 chromoly tubing. Limited production (mostly built to order).

    Pics added to show how they fit onto the frame. Upper mount simply lassos the tank “wing” bolt stud. The bottom mounts uses the stock engine bolt/mount location, it is a tapered fit into the frame.

    We sold out of the first run batch. Curious if there is interest in me making more? Makes for a good stocking stuffer to yourself. ;)

    Just installed these on my 2017 Griso.

    I had purchased a set of the Hepco-Becer crash bars that did not fit and have been languishing in my spare parts storage.

    The GTM bars:
    - were very easy to install
    - fit perfectly
    - look a lot better on the bike than they do in the pictures

    Hopefully I will never find out how well they work. After high-siding my RnineT I decided the exposed heads on a Guzzi (or a BMW Boxer) really need additional protection. I was about ready to drag the Hepco-Becker crash bars back out and give them a try when I saw Todd's ad.

    Thanks Bob. I am sold out of the first batch run. Any others will by built to order, so the price will creep up after the first of the year because of material costs. Just FYI to all reading this.
