I would appreciate your opinion on frame sliders. I get mixed reviews regarding them. I was at Holeshot Honda the other day and the accessories guy, a very nice person and an experienced rider, told me that they weren't really worth it. He then took me out to the shop and showed me a bike that had gone down. The frame slider was gone and the stem of it was bent. The shop was concerned that the stem of the slider, still in the bike, may have cause the engine to be cracked. They didn't know at that moment. In this instance I could see that the slider didn't really do any good.
WHAT IS YOUR OPINION AND EXPERIENCE WITH FRAME SLIDERS?
