I used SW MOTECH, crashed @65/mph(high-side), the bars were "untouched". My skid is also SW and it has ZERO damage. So that is one possibility,BUT I like the H.T.bars as they take bags, which weights the front end more, a big plus IMHO. Happy Shopping!
I use the HT bars with the little HT pannier-type bags that are specific to them and agree with masterlink about weighting the front end.
Downside: The little HT bags are expensive, just like any little nylon bike bags like tank bags, etc. You could probably craft your own for a lot less. Plus, you have to be careful what you put in them because whatever it is will be between the bike and the ground if the bike is crashed or dropped.
Pluses: They transfer more weight to the front end (depending on what you put in them, of course) and they help protect your legs from the wind and cold.
I use the HT skid plate but they kind of all look the same to me. In my opinion, the only downside to the HT skid plate is that the hole around the engine oil drain plug is too big and really doesn't need to be there at all.
Unless somebody else has found a way to do it, I find it's necessary to completely remove the skidplate when doing an oil change because no matter how you orient/lean the bike, the last vestiges of oil that come out of the crankcase after the flow slows down will cling to the bottom of the case and flow to another point and then drip down, filling the top of the skid plate with oil and you have to pull it off to clean it up, anyway. I don't see any practical reason to have a big hole around the oil drain plug that rocks, etc. could penetrate.
