    Bump - I was about to post this same question. Anyone have any experience with these? Seems like a good way to add better protection without having to replace the entire hand guard.

    I do like the style of those however for that price point I'd suggest you also check out a pair of bark busters.

    I've been using storms for years and although the styling is arguably less cool looking they're built like a brick shithouse.

    Better wind/rain protection than the stock guards (which broke when i dropped the bike)

    Thanks. I've had Barkbusters on previous bikes, and I agree that they can take a beating like nothing else. Wind/rain protection-wise, I already have the larger black OEM upper hardguards, so I don't think the Barkbusters offer any significant advantage over those.
