Default Tip over protection on a Cross Roads

I don't know if I'm on the correct posting section or not but I have a question. Is Tip Over Protection a standard feature on the 2012 Cross Roads Classic LE? I bought it used so I don't know if I have it. How can I tell without dropping the bike over on purpose if I have it or not.

There isn't really a tip over protection on the X bikes but a set of crash bars up front and on the bags can equal a similar outcome if you do happen to drop the bike.

Are you talking about the feature that kills the engine when the bike is laid over?

No, it's the one that the Vision has and I heard that the Cross models are optional.

Mine does have the engine/crash bars and also bars around the soft bags so I have a little help. I dropped my Goldwing and it stayed upright and no damage done except scratches and scrapes under the bars.

We really hoped there was an option for the tip over protection like the Vision has but no; just the crash bars. They work well though to protect things.

However, if the bike is top heavy with luggage or something, it can roll past the bars and break a hand lever or mirror. Probably wouldn't happen but it could.

Default tip over protection that works

For my 2012 XCT.
I used to use heater hoses but that looked terrible and didn't last but one drop. Now I use a 2 piece shaft collar for the crash bars that works great. First I protected the chrome with a thin piece of inter tube rubber. Too bad the factory didn't do this. I think tip over protection is a great selling point.

Then for the saddle bags I had a fabrication shop bend a 6" piece of steel pipe to match the contour then cut it in half and secured it to the saddle bag bars with double sided tape. Just to make double sure it doesn't fall off I added wire ties at both ends.

To protect the floor boards I purchased the Victory Police floor board skid plates for around $100.

To protect against the one in a million chance it might tip all the way over and damage the faring I bought some cheap highway pegs and installed them upside down.

When I do the cone courses now I never worry about damaging my bike.

Recently softly dropped my 2012 XR's

It rested on the large black floorboard supports, never touched
the engine guards or the saddle bag guards.

So if that's what you mean?????? Have a friend help you lay it over to see what hits first.
