I just got the Holan guard and haven't had it on for long so can't talk in depth about it. It does look good on the bike, and it does seem to keep things open to access, although, you do have to work around it a bit for the maintenance. The side panels, where the turn signals are, have an allen bolt that is directly behind one of the joints on the crash bars. You can still get to the bolt, but if Holan had moved that joint a centimeter or two in either direction, it probably would have made the access much easier. Still, it seems like you should be able to do any stuff that needs doing without too much headache.
