It depends of intended use. If you are going to use the bike on the street and occasional gravel road then anything works.
But if you plan on off road riding then I suggest the following:
I personnaly like Touratech on the crash bars, really anything except the skid plat. Although they just released a new version and from what I can see a better plate. I prefer Black Dog for skid plates. Handles logs and rocks and is frame mounted.
I am less concerned about the look of the bike since I personally think my GSA is ugly as can be but a great ADV bike.
But Altrider and others are fine as well as far as crashbars go, but for real skidplates Black Dog is the only choice.
I live in Rochester if you want to take a look how it sits on the bike.
