YIKES... That clay mud is some slippery stuff - I been on it with the OEM deathwings and here's how I ended up after trying to correct on a straight muddy road.

Hytram did those HB bars bend?

I hope that the pic is a weird angle but it looks as though the HB crash bars bent in? I just ordered some, so I am anxious that they are tougher than that.

Yup... they are bent, it was reasonable laydown that caused that, not the gentle laydown in the first photo... they did save the fairings

I think the HB are the pick of the bunch, there is one pair out there that mount to the radiator, with those I would have been walking home

Putting a decal over the scratches on fairing.

The drawback with crashbars is that they all cost more than the plastic that they protect.

Depends. My R fairing would have been smashed if is wasn't for the crashbars (we took a hard spill on gravel). All it suffered were deep scratches at the top (which will be covered by a decal in the near future). And my total expense was a new signal assembly.

This time (no more times I hope).

I saw that bike and wondered what happened. Glad to hear he was OK. Looks like it time for a DL naked bike conversion....
