The Dion Device makes a lot more sense for roadracing/track day applications than ANY of the hook style brake lever guards. It's pricey but the product materials and manufacturing quality are amazing. I would have preferred the privateer version which is much more cost effective (and possibly stronger), but I was in the midst of a throttle cable & clip-on upgrade and needed the lever guard in a hurry for fitting purposes. The three biggest features that sold me on the Dion Device were the way it protects the entire front surface of the brake lever, that it cannot trap my fingers, and that I can still use my Canyon Dancer (see other's reviews) tie down straps that fit over the bar ends. Knock on wood, haven't crashed it yet, so durability is a guess based on previous experience with off-road brush guards. On a low-side it will protect a lot of stuff. Plus it is my understanding that all parts are available just like for rearsets, clipons, etc.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Kriega US-20 Drypack
Kriega US-20 Drypack
Kriega US-20 Drypack The Kriega US-20 is an award-winning, high quality piece of motorcycle luggage, offering 20 liters of capacity. Like all Kriega US bags, it is a 100 waterproof Drypack with innovative design which attaches to the sub-frame, via included buckle loops and Alloy Hook Straps, for use as a motorcycle tail pack and courier bag. The Kriega US-20 motorcycle bag comes equipped with removable shoulder and waist straps. It can be carried courier style, on or off the bike. It can also be used as a tank bag (with addition of US Tank adaptor) or in combination with other US packs to create a supremely adaptable, modular, soft luggage system. Anti-slip mesh base also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder waist straps, or other items, when the US-20 is attached to the motorcycle. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 x tuck-away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket. The Kriega US-20 dry pack motorcycle tailpack is designed to work perfectly with pretty much any motorcycle, via a super secure attachment to the sub-frame. The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles, and no extra bungees or rain covers are required. The Kriega dry bag US-20 tail pack utilizes the latest generation of fitting straps. US Alloy Hook Straps allow tailpack combinations of up to 90-liters to be carried with confidence and convenience. Easy on/off with no loose straps remaining. Custom CNC milled, aircraft grade, 6061-T6 alloy hooks attach to the four discreet web loops located on the frame of the bike. Fitting method is particularly suitable for traditional one-piece motorcycle seats and bolt-on seat pads/racks, as well as standard seats. US packs can be mounted inline or across the seat. For use as a tankbag, Kriega US Tank Adaptor must be purchased.

This is a high quality waterproof bag that fits my 15.6" laptop, shoes & casual work clothes plus lunch. Part of a modular system. I use mine mostly on the Kriegs tank adapter (reviewed separately) as a tank bag. Also, fits cell phone & wallet in top pocket (not waterproof, so in ziploc bag). This way I can ride to work with reasonable protective and/or cold weather gear on and change into work clothes once I get there. Yes, this bag is pricey, but you get what you pay for. Stitching & materials are similar to high quality backpacking/climbing stuff and 10 year guarantee with excellent customer service (Kriega sent me extra adhesive velcro and webbing just for asking). Attachment system (2012) is quick & secure even at sport bike speeds.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is by far the best, most secure & convenient tank bag system I've seen, especially for plastic covered tanks. I use it with a Kriega US20 bag (see separate review) on a 2008 cbr600rr. The tank adapter is easy to unclip at the back and flip out of the way (even with bag attached) for fuel fill. The new (2012) straps with clips, which are part of the US10 & 20 bags, make it quick to attach & detach these bags. High quality construction. No messing with magnets. Secure at sport bike speeds. Yeah, the stuff is pricey, but it's sewn like climbing gear. 10-year guarantee, which I don't expect to use. Great customer support. Note: on under-seat install on cbr600rr it helps to scuff up the seat area before attaching the self-adhesive velcro.
Yes, I recommend this product.
