GIVI HP4103 Hand Guards

Anybody using these have comments on how they like them? They have no metal backbone, but for my type of riding - mainly looking for weather protection. I like that there's no bracket that clamps to the handlebar - so hot weather removal would be easy. Seem kind of pricey for all the more they are, but I really like the looks. I even read on Revzilla.com someone seemed to feel they offered more weather protection than the factory vrsions used on the V1000 & V650LT.

I have ZETA XC guards on my '08. The plastic removes w/ two screws per side (which I do once it gets warm) as you can see in this pic.



The guards on my '15 ALSO attach w/ three screws, so are removable, altho', because the screws attach from the inside, it's a bit more of a chore to remove them, but still doable.



Using either set-up still gives you protection in case of a spill....
