I can say, Touratech crash bars have done the job!  VCIF_ThumbUp  CRF1000L against Suzuki Alto . Crf1000l + Touratech crash bars wins  ;) still some aftermath ...
I never like to hear of actual validation of crash bars. Hope you're ok Zebulon.

The bike was 3 days, so before our running trip, and an old (85) man decided to start & cut my way... The bike is to my dealer to repair the most damaged thing for our trip to VCIM. I just had a back pain during some days, but it seems ok now..

Thx guys ! VCIF_salut

Many crash bars I've seen don't have upper support to the rear, so the bars can be prone to bending inwards when the bike lands on its side, in which case the chances are the upper side fairing will still be damaged on impact. I've read a post somewhere where this has happened.

RockFox have considered this and added a rearward brace, about a 1/3 of the way up. I have received word that Rockfox upper crash bars are fitted to some CRF1000L rental bikes in South Africa and have proven to save the fairings many times over.

Quote
Rockfox builds a VERY strong set of bars, and are one of few (if not the only) manufacturer to include an additional rearward pointing brace for the upper bars. It adds quite a bit of strength - the bars have been installed and tested on rental bikes down in South Africa and subjected to a lot of abuse, and the bars havenít moved a bit.

I ordered mine through ADV-Motorrad , NY, USA. Not fitted them yet, but below are some examples of the upper bars fitted.
