With or without axel and fork slider?

I'm actually battling in deciding whether to have the axel and fork slider install for my strada. It's actually looks good without it....but in another thought it might be bad if I crash one day.

The Rizoma frame sliders are really nice. I think speedymoto for axle sliders are fine.

One of those better to have it and not need it items. I've dropped too many bikes without them and felt stupid for not spending the $100.

Better safe than sorry in my mind. Ive rashed forks in the past on spills and now always just do all around protection. I have the motovationusa sliders (fork, frame, axle) on mine and think they look great. The fork sliders blend in well with the black calipers.

I like the Speedymoto sliders. One poster mentioned breaking the fender mount on the fork leg in a minor prang, the sliders would prevent that. But the RH rear one will not protect the muffler in a tipover. The rears have necks that act as spools for a conventional rear stand, but they prevent access to the wheel nut. Good for track days if you remove the centerstand. Their frame sliders protect the water pump fairly well, another vulnerable area.

As for Rizoma, I can't understand their pricing. Their stuff must be made of gold.

Which sucks, because the Rizoma frame sliders actually look really good. Speedymoto front axle sliders are barely noticeable.

I have mentioned that big spool frame sliders, like Speedys, are a nice place to prop your feet on longer rides to stretch a little. I do this and prop up on pillion seat sometimes. Lets your butt dry out and the memory foam under forward seat reset.

Speedymoto will sell you new pucks for a reasonable price, too.
