I often ride in Enduro style boots, like TCX Pro 2.1. This gives me much needed protection, but it leaves scars on bikes. Since my 1090 is brand new, protecting nice orange trellis frame seemed like a good idea. 

I installed Touratech frame guards few days ago.

Guards are made from high quality plastic and fit is great. Each guard is secured using three zip ties.

I like that guards are not sticking out too much, visually. Since fit is good, they seem like OEM part. Generally, I don't like adding too much "protection" to the bike, but I am sure that this nice orange frame would be ruined very soon. Scratches will be much less visible on black plastic. 

UPDATE 29.4.2018:

Folks on FB warned me that there is a chance that guards themselves will harm the frame. So I removed frame guards after some 500 km of mixed road-off road riding. Frame was not scratched, but some markings were visible.

So I did as suggested, I applied EPDM self-adhesive rubber strips on the frame and reinstalled the guards.

I hope this will do the trick.

I am not fan of hard luggage, but for commuting, top cases are undeniably practical. Since this addition is meant only for on road, we tried how largest top case we could find would fit on Oleg's 1090 Adventure R - Givi/Kappa 58 ltr. top case.
