Interesting that they are splitting years that way.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Probably just errors.  There is no such thing as a 2007 C14.  And 2010 though 2014 are identical.  I sent them an Email pointing out the errors on the three products that are all mislabeled (it is a pretty huge set of errors!!)

I have never seen these before.

Interesting- looks like McE is up for some competition now.  The rears are very similar to McE.  The front bars they are making look like they won't protect as well as the Canyon Cages because they are a two point instead of three point installation.  I would be greatly concerned that they could snap off the engine mount when hitting hard.

I could see this starting a long thread of discussion...

That.

And the CCs just look sexier.

Im concerned that the CC will get in the way of my new touring pegs or my legs while using them, these appear to set higher and should be clear. Plus they are $100+ cheaper. I am not really looking for complete protection, just as a slow slide or drop type situation i want to be able to ride it home.

That is a possibility, depending on where the pegs are located.

I completely understand.  But it will be a really, really bad day for you if you drop a little harder than you expect and break the engine mount.  That is a lot more serious than damaged plastics.  I am not quite sure HOW serious it will be... but I bet someone on the forum will tell us :)

I'm not sure I'd throw my business to a site that can't get the years and gens right on the Concours.  It's sloppy.  If they can't get that right what else isn't right?  But that's just me...

Just wonder if the engineers/designers made the mistake or the computer geek running thier site did. OR the extreemly hott office secretarty did: If thats the case she is completely forgiven.  :thumbs:

I've never seen these before either, but I do have a set of T-Rex stands that I bought back when I was riding sport bikes their their build quality was excellent and their pricing was reasonable.  That being said, I'm still happy with my canyon cages and think they'll provide better protection in a tip over.
