Slid my bike out in the middle of a turn, and had to replace the engine guard, but still running the same bag guards today (this happened in 2015), and my bag doesn't have a scratch. I jumped on top of my bike as it was sliding until I got to where I could jump off into the grass in case it flipped.
I got the genuine HD guards from Surdyke's website, which while being in Hawaii, buying there and paying shipping was less than buying right at the dealership 6 miles from my house. I also checked other sites, and some were actually less expensive, but the shipping was more expensive, making the total more expensive.
I wanted to get the real deal guards as I didn't want to trust my bike to the cheap stuff. Spend money to save money. Two months later I went surfing on my bike.
