Why would that bother you??? If you're 28 years old, why do you care what a bunch of punk kids think? Anyway, what you should do is get in front of them on the track and roost the crap out of them until they go get some handguards of their own!

I'm 39....imagine the comments that get said about me when I show up at the MX track with my 650r. :smirk: Who cares! I'm having fun and that's all that matters.

Dude, if you are letting them bother you then you have other issues. :smirk:

If they outride you, then deal with it. If you can out ride them, then let them deal with it. :smirk:

Tell them they're for knocking down small trees and hitting other racers hands :smirk:

+1! Also, make sure to laugh at them when they bust their hands up on a tree! :smirk:

that just shows how inexperienced they are.

There is more to riding than repeat laps at a track.

Woods, off road, trailriding is all i do. Its a blast. New technical obstacles every turn, seeing amazing scenery. I want to see them go for a trail ride and #1 just break their hands on limbs/rocks and #2 take a fall and have to ride back 30 miles with a broken clutch lever. Im sure they will have handguards after that.

I put Acerbis pro rally guards on my Kx250f, why?...becuaes i bought for woods riding, and same thing I don;t want to chance smacking my fist into a tree.

i'm 37 (now) and well, the older you get the slower yu heal...plus my job requires the use of both hands..lol...the kids you speak of, probably don;t have FT jobs either.

SHEESH!! you are bothered enough by comments from children to write in this forum about an accessory that 90% of OFFROAD riders use?? why even give it any thought? "catching hell"?? i guess pre schoolers could give you hell too if you stop and ask them about certain subjects. time to man up and not ever worry what a punk 19 yr old says about nearly ANYTHING!

Call them wimps for not trying woods racing. Tell them to try a H/S or enduro and then spout off.

They're also great for kidney shots in tight quarters.:smirk:

When CaveMike little, many other cave children tease him, make fun of CaveMike for be slow and hairy. One day CaveMike go hunt mammoth, fall down ice crevice, get frozen. When him wake up, all these children dead. Been dead for many thousands years. See, everything work out for CaveMike. Probably work out for you too. If not, try club them with handguards. Very difficult to tease while be clubbed. Almost impossible.
