Truth be told, I don't own a cage. That said, at least when the bike falls over it stops sliding :) Cars don't fall over very easily and hence don't stop sliding very quick on their tires.

While I was bending my side case latch back into a useable form, dozens of cars blew the red at the bottom of that hill I crashed on.

Year 3 of living in Missouri without a cage, it's exciting

Any Capo owners have pictures showing where they've mounted fog or driving lights? I need to add a set but have not decided where I'll mount them.....

I have Denalis on mine.

Mounted them to some handy threads that I think are possibly meant for the metal headlight guard. Very stable, zero light fixture bounce even off roaring.

plug TuneEcu on your bike
change the IFT setting, with a sniffer/probe in your exhaust.
