So I have heard the BMW bars can flex, where some brands such as Altrider do not. Some argue that the flex is what you want so the frame isn’t damaged in a fall, where a stiff non-flexing bar could cause damage to the frame. Any one have any experience with either of those issues? I don’t plan on riding it like a motocross bike. However, if you ride with Greg you may have to ride down hills like this so I want to be prepared. 🙂
