I made me some out of a textured piece of place and press floor tile I had laying around. I made a template and cut and sculpted em until I was satisfied. Then I painted em black and added a couple coats of clear for durability. My GF is very picky and she says they look great. Cost to do it...$0. Here they are.
Yeah...it's definitely easier to get on the quick stand with the bar on too. It just really looks cool without it and cleans up the tail nicely. When I trail the GF she says she doesn't feel comfortable grabbing onto it so it really serves no purpose for us. Hope my suggestion helps somebody else out.
