The title is kind of misleading - nothing about the handguards.

The reason I make this comment is that I am more interested in the handguards - although I know they go together. The reason I am interested is that my Cycra guards that came with my Hussy get bent/misaligned (a little), I lost a bolt and one came lose, and they are pulling the inserts out of the bars.

I guess that is to be expected of any conventional handguard, but I was wondering if the HDB guards were more stout because they attach at the top clamp, or maybe the opposite?

Any feedback on these from people who have used them in situations where the handguards hit things, like the ground, trees and such? About every other ride I fall down at least one and that usually involves the handguards.

The top clamp features are a plus, but I am more interested in the durability of the handguards. The LED turn signal guard plastics seem nice too.
