I find falling off the bike so incredibly painful, I've resolved never to do it again. That means a lot more caution and a lot more alertness. So (hopefully) neither is your answer.

Bars are best for most riders. If you want the most practical option, a 52 litre topbox helps to protect the bike a lot more than what you would expect.

Suppose it's all on looks.
Had a beautiful CB750 and the chrome engine bars just looked right on it where as with the CB being quite narrow I'm not sure they suit and they can be hard to find at a good price.

I will be getting a set of sliders from R&G or similar for mine soon. Tried the engine case sliders and lost one on my first ride Shocked

I just got a CB500F as my first street bike and was wondering which frame sliders I should get? Anyone have any preferences?
