I think I have only had crash bars fitted to one bike and I have done a great deal of touring on rough roads. The RTW bike never had any. I usually drop my bike a few times a trip!! If you have panniers they seem to take the rap...

Re: The 'Official' HISS Trip report

Thank you Simon and Polly. Freddy and I made it to Santander by hook and crook. We did cross from Sabada to Arguedas.
