Heed protection/tip over bars - Review

I just got done installing the "Heed" protection/tip over pars on my 2015 K1600 GT. These come from Poland and were shipped in about 12 days time. They came very well protected wrapped up in those foam thinghys. The instructions were somewhat vague and it took a bit of deciphering what they were trying to tell you. But, pretty simple rear bar install, somewhat finicky forward bars install.
The workmanship seems very good and of solid construction. I do think regardless of manufacture, BMW, Heed, etc, any time this heavy bike goes down while in motion, these become sacrificial.

I am please with the look, construction, and price on these. I rate these as a good buy for the K1600.

They come in Grey, silver or black.

$150 for the front pair
$170 for the rear pair
$50 shipping

$370 total

Bought them on E-bay here:
Great deals in K1600 GT from HeedMoto | eBay Stores
*You must scroll until you find the correct bars for your bike. *They call the rear bag bars "Rear engine crash bars." Oh well.

Pipe masters - Australia. Only place on the planet that hand makes these beauties. They sound similar to a deep throated F1 car. You decide?
Waited quite a while for em but well worth the wait!

I can't find a link to them, especially in the US. I did find a US dealer, but can't find them on their site. Help?

I'm not seeing any pictures in this tread....I noticed Heed has bars that look like the Wunderlich bars. Are these the one's you got?

Well I came here to find out about different options for tip over bars. Now I am going to Craigslist to find a CBX to restore lol. Fantastic Honda and those pipes are superb. I can only imagine all the people that never knew Honda made a 6 cylinder bike or don't remember them counting the tailpipes and saying WHAT ? Good job and stay safe, Morgan
