I know common sense says go with the R&G sliders. But, although this is VERY not like me, I'm worried about the aesthetics.
IMO, those R&Gs completely RUIN the lines of the bike. I'm most definitly one to be for over function....but damn, they're just an eyesore. Even worse on the F4...
And realisticly, in an accident THAT bad requiring you to need those over just the frame protectors, wouldn't the bike be totalled regardless?
I'm just trying to see if it's really worth the extra costs. Reason why I'm asking now:
His accident damage isn't THAT bad, aside from the frame damage. It's a rad pipe, and engine cover. The tail, it wouldn't have made a difference WHICH sliders you had, that woulda happenned. His real wheel is still fine as are his forks...so those two sets of sliders (wheel and fork) appear kinda useless to me, as the only way those would get damaged would be a horrendous bike toppling accident...in which case, nothing is saving anything...
So question is...is it really worth buying the R&G over those frame protectors?
