I use the hand guards on my WR250. I usually use my WR250 to do the bushwacking and trail breaking. One day I decided to try and break some new trail on the trials bike. I rode for almost 30 minutes before I figured out what was going on. Every little branch or little sapling I was trying to run over would grab one of my levers and pull it. Having something grab your front brake or clutch while you are riding will throw you off.
