Yep it should be good flicking it through the bends up loch Lomond 😁. Was thinking of putting crash bars on it but not sure if you can still get the panels off it.

As you'll see from my photos, I haven't added much (just a radiator guard and road tyres) - personally, I might fit crash bars if I rode 'fast and loose' off road, other than that they are just excess weight!   :008:

And they often seem to introduce vibration which wasn't there before.   :084:

Just new to the site but my old kawa er5 had plenty vibes. Does the Honda's bar ends help to dampen it's vibes ? Like you said, I take it the vibes would also transfer through the frame to the crash bars. I had renntec lower engine bars on a few bikes over the years just to rest my feet on & stretch my legs.

Don't worry if you want to fit crash bars, it's only a small minority that get vibrations from them!
