I also advocate the use of Frame Sliders. I have the Cyclecats on my 02 620. Heres a pic of them. Yours of course wont have the bodywork.
Frame sliders don't get in the way. 6'4" and never had a problem knocking my knees.I've got longer legs & am worried I maybe knockin my knee's against 'em.
By this logic you couldn't have rubber tires either. Friend totalled his bike on the track when his tires caught and flipped the bike after a long slide subsequent to a lowside.On the other hand, if the bike hits the dirt while it's still sliding, they will usually cause the bike to flip.
No problems for me either. I'm 6'4" as well. I do ocassionaly tap my shins on them when parking the bike, but no big deal. I vote yes for sliders. They make nice footrests on straightaways too....I've got longer legs & am worried I maybe knockin my knee's against 'em...
A flipped bike will often be totaled.I've watched bikes slide slowly along the road, & hit the shoulder at what seems like an insignificant amout of speed, catch the frame slider, & do a nice flip, tearing off windscreen, dashes, scratching tank tops, etc.
