Bumper Guards?

I will be looking at a K1200RS that the owner says will have the GT Bumper Guards.
WTF?

I have looked online and so far not found Rubber Bumper Guards for a GT.

Does anyone know about these things. They are supposed to protect the fairing from tip overs etc.

Pictures or referral to a web site would be great.
Thanks

Maybe the owner is talking about those rubber wind guards that run vertical on the main body panel on a GT, but not on a RS? You probably can see them at www.webparts.com. That site is for Hammersley BMW

Find the GT in the bike model listing. Go to" vehicle trim, painted parts" in the drop down menu.

I was thinking of item #07 "leg guard" for $152.87 each.

Maybe he'll throw in a "bumper-to-bumper warranty" too?

But don't confuse the wind guards with bumpers. They will not help you much in a tip over.
