Bike Bars - February 13, 2007, 10:07 AM

So I was watching super bikes and saw that thing for stunters... the metal bracket that goes around your farrings and protects from all drops.

So I've been thinkin this is a good idea. Then I heard that metal is bad at high speed and could cause more damage if it were to go down....

So are these a good idea for reg riders?

Are they track legal?

Not track applicable. It would hinder lean angle resulting in lowsides.

Nice. Thanks.


So the advice is no? They are bad? Not for road riding? Just stunting?

The one I heard about sticks out less than the pegs and about equal to the frame sliders...


Anyone have some opinions?

you can make and probably buy crash cages that are more flush with the body work.

They're a cheap way to save you lots of money on broken parts and body work, but frame sliders work just as well for slides (just not gonna help if you're smaking your bike down from a stand up like a crash cage will)


'04 CBR1000RR and lots of Volvos (and now a new Tundra for hauling them around when they all break)
