I just wanted to throw a recommendation out for a boot/pipe guard that I think is high quality and really looks nice and functions as advertised. This would be the guard from Rock Hard Boot GuardT Below is a picture of the one I put on my bike and not only does it keep me from kicking my pipes all of the time but just plain looks good. See what you think and no, I'm not in anyway related to or work for this place. Just think it's worthwhile product. Anybody have one and what is your opinion? Anybody gonna get one? You will love it!
