- I ride a
- V-Star 1300
If I had an engine guards on my v star It may have prevented the damage that was done to. I hate the look so I still don't have one. Am I crazy?
This is exactly what,the guard would look,like for my,bike.,,I like my bagger without it. I saw a guy at a demo ride drop a 40,000 c.v.o.Some call them crash bars. Here is the classic style
Yes, you might be crazy.
I have had bikes tip over, seen Metro Nashville motor officers lay theirs on its side, and a set saved my legs in 1995 and again in 2010.
They state they are NOT designed to really withstand a crash though.
Do they make the bike look odd?My bike has crash guards, around engine and under side cases. I've laid the bike down, while stationary, or moving very slow speeds, couple of times. No damages to the bike. If I did not have the crash guards, my engine covers would most likely be scratched.
