You're more than likely to drop your bike at less than 3mph in the v-e-r-y slow and tight turning maneuvers you'll be exercising. This vid illustrates what touches the ground on a slow tip over. I'd take the bags off anyway just in case. It'd take a whole lot more speed and other factors for other parts to touch the ground. About the only time you'll build up speed is when you're practicing threshold braking between 25~45mph in a straight line...almost impossible to drop it in a straight line unless you get really goofed up if/when a slide occurs...and you lose it. Hope this helps.

I have bag guards on mine. It doesn't detract too much from the aesthetics...especially black powder coated on a vivid black bike;)
