Based on this comment, it sounds like the wheel travel is long enough to put the hugger into the bottom of the bike. I would think the R&G hugger from Twisted Throttle would be less likely to break because it looks more flexible. It also seems to have a slight upturn on the tip that may help it avoid catching the tire when pinched against the frame. Plus, it just looks less bulky.
