    What after market hand guards are people using. I have a 2022 F850 GS Rallye. I have fitted foldable levers and mirrors but still have the OEM plastic hand guards. What are others using, barkbusters, Acerbis?

    I am using the barkbusters. They have that plastic cover on top of the bar which I think is aluminium, but may be steel, not sure.

    Dropped it several times and they held up without damaging anything on the bike

    Yep just get the barkbusters, these are great. Replacing the broken brake or clutch lever costs the same as the bark busters.  :008:

    They look very well and add visibility too.

    Another vote for the Barkbusters. You have several color choices with the plastic shields. I thought about going with yellow to match my 40th anniversary color scheme, but ultimately decided on black.

    The white plastic Barkbuster hand guards get yellow/orange within a year... Go with the dark colors if that matters to you...

    Barkbusters for me.

    When you drop the bike, the road gets dented…
