New Project: T-Rex Crash *Bars* And Tank Sliders

I was at the Dallas motorcycle show last week and I ran into the T-Rex booth. Turns out they're based in Dallas, not terribly far from me. More importantly, they'd be very happy to work up some new crash bars (now that everyone else like Givi and Motech are discontinuing theirs) and tank protectors for the 919. Led Duck and I will be lending our 919s to the cause so they can fab things up in a few weeks.

So, here's the questions:
1. What crash bars did we like, which did we not like? What features were good and which features could we do without?
2. Where do we think the crash bars should be attached or tie to the frame and engine?
3. How large should the tank protectors be?
4. Are there any added features we would like to see?

That'd be cool... I'd be in on a mass purchase don't have any current crash protectors on the smurf

This is good, I've been looking at a set of HEED bars. Didn't really like the look of the SW Motech bars. The HEED bars looked similar to the Givi bars but only had (at the front) a single mount point on the frame using a 8mm rod. The Givi's had both an engine mount and a frame mount which I like. If I had a choice I would prefer the Givi style crash bar perhaps with 10mm mounting rod. Cheers.

I'd like to see them mount to the frame instead of the engine as well. I had issues with the Givi bars (I think these look the best) with welds cracking. They were/are difficult to weld due to the thin wall tubing they used.
