Barkbusters handguards

For those of you that have barkbusters handguards on your bike, what do you prefer between the single-point mount vs the two-point mount?
Also, VPS or Storm plastics?
Lastly, did anyone with a black bike get the green handguards? If so, can you send a picture?

Thanks!

Just a point - single-point won't protect your hands in a crash as well as two-point mounts.

Have the two points. They are very solid I like them a lot. Also I have the storm handguards they work pretty well for wind deflection.

I had a right-sided low side awhile back and the stock Kawi handguards held up extremely well. There is a little amount of aluminum worn away near the bar end. I touched it up with black marker and didn't see a need to replace them.
