I am a newbie here so first let me say hi to everyone. I have been riding motorcycles for a long time now but mainly on the black top, my last bike being a 2008 Kawasaki 1400GTR. I have recently decided to do a bit of offroad and so have purchased and am awaiting delivery of a BMW R1200GS. As I intend to take it offroad I have come to the realisation that at one time or another I will drop it. What I would like are some suggestions about the best crash protection I can get for the bike without spending vasts sums of money. I know an at speed drop will cause damage regardless but am really after some ideas about what I can do to prevent minor damage and some hints about any parts on the bike that may be more suspect than others to damage and so require extra protection. Thanks.
