engine guard or sliders?

what do you think? i really hope to never need either. i don't know if the engine guard thing is what i'm looking for. i have hb engine guard on the caponord and it looks great. it's really big though.

Engine Guard, better coverage area against sliders.

I have read indicators that say that your chance of the bike 'cart-wheeling', or doing 'end-over-ends' is GREATLY increased by using sliders, when they dig in.

When I "tested" the crash-bars on my '08 some years ago it was nice that the bike slid along the curve I was on.
