How about some handguard recommendations

I had a pair of EEs and I did notice my throttle hand hitting the outside of the bark buster. Maybe I'm just too used to the Pro Bends. The triple clamp mounts keep the bark busters rigid so they can't rotate, a nice side benefit is you have more room for your brake line and cables.
A nice side benefit of any bark buster-style guard is waving bye-bye to broken levers.
There are now four companies that I'm aware of that make the triple clamp mounts, SRC, GYT-R, Fastway, and Cycra. I know from experience that a good spill will twist the Cycra's and GYT-Rs just a tad, not a big deal, they straighten out easily and I've never bent one very much. You have to look closely to notice it. Anyway the Fastway version look like they may be a bit sturdier.
As was already noted, Fastway's bar mount mounting system for their handguards looks like a great idea, although it just occured to me that you couldn't run a Pro Taper-style bar pad with that setup. Well, I bet you could trim the cover and foam a bit and make it work. The Fastway guards pretty much copy the shape of the Pro Bends.
