We do not crash the ST.
We do not buy/sell crash equipment.
We do not repair crash damage.

We have been known to tip over the ST.
We do buy and install tip over equipment.
Some have been known to repair tip over damage.

You'll get the hang of it.

BTW, at one time there was an option for stainless bolts for the tip over bars. Put out the bucks and get them. It's a one time buy, suck it up. Stainless bolts in the size required are extremely hard to find and therefore extremely expensive.

And yes, some of us do tip them over.

I'm on tipover number 3 but still, no damage, due to Bygdawgs tipover bars installed.

How do you know it was due to those?
I've tipped over 5 times with no additonal (an unnessecary) tip over bars and zero damage...

It has tip over protection built in so I dont see the need for tip over protection in addition to the tip over protection??

When I fell sideways off my air lift, onto the concrete floor, I'm fairly certain that that it was the tipover bar that kept from creating a big pile of broken plastic. It hit pretty hard, and I was on it.

Maura, at 5'-5" I am surprised you don't tip over every time you stop!! Maybe that is why you have done so many miles, you don't ever stop

I bought the Bywdawg rear tip over bars, but never knew how effective they were until last month. I lowsided the ST1300 first ride out of winter storage, I was too aggressive on a road that still had winter sand on it. Thousands of dollars of plastic damages. I got up without a scratch. If I did not have the rear tip over bars, my left leg would have been mangled. The rear and front bar worked together to form a hollow space in the leg area. Thanks to Bywdawg, also to leather and kevlar.
