If you don't do any off-road riding, can sliders be a good alternative to crash bars?
Yup, me too. You can hook your calf over the sliders for a change in position at a third of the price.I low sided at 20mph with sliders and the old SW-Motech Crash bars. The crash bar had a barely visible paint scuff about the size of a pinky fingernail tip. The slider puck, hand guard and mirror had to be replaced. I use the sliders as highway pegs.
