Try breaking trail and maybe then you can post an experienced opinion on hand guards .Hand guards. Theres nothing holding them at the angle they sit at. Its just clamping force on the bars. So if they took an impact Im 99% sure they'd just rotate down and leave my hand to take the whack.
They actually do what they are suppose to do .
And well designed guards have at least dual attachment points : both around the bar and inside the bar end .
