Crash Bar

Technology / Motorcycle / Crash Bar: Many motorcycles have a Crash Bar or guard to protect the bike should it fall over. You'll have to look carefully on some bikes to see them and not all bikes are so equipped. Some models hide the protectors behind plastic covers. Look for extended areas on the bike where the guards may be hiding. For Newbies, a Crash Bar may be the only thing standing in the way of an expensive repair job that could cost you hundreds of dollars because of a simple tipover.
