Testimonials
While performing at the NEC bike show, Dave had a little mishap....
I am so glad I had them refit your products after the bike had its new frame.
A customer had a crash in August '08, at Cadwell Park, on his GSXR600 K6 and the NEW R&G Engine Case Slider certainly did it's job!
The bike really has been saved from being so quickly written off...
Thank you R&G for making such a great product. it was worth every cent I paid for.
90mph low side in a right hander.....
....unfortunately we had a mishap on Friday when Mr Whitham was testing....
.....ooops, they did it again! This time at a very wet Knockhill on 1st July 2007.
The crash protectors certainly did their job and made sure that I could recover the bike and finish the 6 hour race.
....a right hand side crash that put me and my bike (Aprilia RSV Mille) in a ditch after a 30ft slide along the road and along a grass bank....
World famous stunt rider Kevin Carmichael - our very own crash test dummy - crashed his Street Triple while stunting.....
Just a quick note to thank you and your products for the staggeringly brilliant job that they did protecting my Fireblade on Sunday...
....crash bungs etc saved the bike from any damage what so ever.. well happy.
I was amazed to see that the damage was mainly mild and superficial, the protector had done a fantastic job!
Suzuki SV560 K3 after 30mph crash.
I want to thank y'all for a great product.
I installed a set of R&G frame sliders on my 2010 Kawasaki ER6N last year.
Just a few days ago, I low sided my bike.
I am fine, and so is the bike.
I walked over to pick up the bike and found absolutely NO damage to the plastics what so ever.
(what little plastic there is on a "N" model)
Between your sliders and the other "crash pads" Ive put on my bike, bar ends, swinger spools and rear grab bar sliders, the bike itself never touched the asphalt.
This is from a 50-55 mph low side.
Once again...
Thanks for a great product.
2003 Ducati 749S crashes near the end of the start/finish straight at Snetterton.......
It was only a low speed drop at the hairpin but it would have been so much worse without the crash protectors......
So, a van reversed into my bike knocking it over, the mudguard was only broken because the driver reversed over it while the bike was on the floor :( But the Adventure Bars saved everything, not even the mirror or top box was touched. The investment in these has saved me a costly insurance claim and all that goes with it. Simply the best extra I purchased to go on my bike.

Just to say thank you for your product, having purchased a brand new Suzuki GSXR at the end of 2000 I fitted crash protectors from yourself.....
After visiting WSB at Brands Hatch last year.....
Just thought I'd say hi.....
I would like to recommend your protectors to anyone who has a bike.....
...the crash bobbins without a doubt saved my engine from a complete wrecking...
The R&G products are second to none!
....in over 100 crashes we have not damaged a single head or frame!
2007 R6 crash protection tested at the UK California Superbike School!
Hi,
Just tested out your Crash Protectors at Oulton Park yesterday.I low sided the bike at Hizzy's chicane and it slid on the tarmac all the way to Knickerbrook........
About a week ago I left my bike, a Suzuki GSX-R600, in the centre of York, and somebody decided it would be fun to sit on it.....
120mph crash at Snetterton.....
Minor lowside once again shows the effectiveness of the R&G products.
Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the guys on your technical support line for the superb service they have provided me with over the last couple of days.

I phoned yesterday with a query concerning the crash protectors on my CBR600RR, the gentleman who answered was extremely helpful and friendly. The item that I subsequently ordered arrived promptly this morning as promised.

I called again today to confirm the fixing and set-up; once again your representative was excellent, he even looked up the torque conversion for me on-line.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to all concerned, and very well done for providing such top notch customer service.

Kind regards,


Stuart Joiner

Just a line to say how much your crash protectors are the absolute bees-knees.....
My Suzuki GSXR750WY was involved in an accident last year.....
Thank you for the speedy service you provided recently in shipping my crash protectors to Belgium.....
Proud to invest in Crash Protectors.....
...I certainly got the last laugh – the best investment I could have made!
....the bike was saved from major damage thanks to R&G crash protection. Without these, the bike would probably have been written off....
Car pulls out and down it went as I tried to avoid the bump.....
.....the only bodywork damage was to the offside of the tail section....
Hi,

I have been superbike racing from Ontario,Canada for over 10 years now and only use your crash protectors for my racing bikes. I wish to thank your company for designing great racing products that save my bikes from low sides when a accident happens on the track........
Many thanks for the products......
This morning my bike went down on its r/h side and slid along the road after hitting diesel on a roundabout......
I wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you...
Hi All,

I would like to say I crashed my 06 fireblade on Saturday morning...
Hi, I thought you may be interested in my testimonial/photos for your website.
I am very pleased with the quality, and fit of the R&G Crash Protectors.....
Basically I was riding happily along after a suit fitting for my wedding on the 18th of February when my front brake just locked up.
I hit the tarmac on my right shoulder breaking my collarbone in two places.

I was doing about 50mph at the time of the crash and my bike slide a good hundred metres of so with me following it.

When I purchased the bike (Suzuki GSXR 1000 K9) I had the full R&G racing pack fitted which included paddock bobbins, fork protectors and of course the aero crash bung.
Obviously the state I was in I couldn't left the bike and in shock I didn't think to look at the bike.

Three of Four days later I finally convinced my fiancee (now wife!) to let me go and see the bike. As per the letter, I was amazed, relieved and so happy about the lack of damage. Chiefly the brake pedal had bent in, fairing had bent a little (from the impact) and the exhaust was a little scratched.

So in short I was over the moon about the R&G products doing their job so well and have already been singing their praises on Gixerjunkies & EssexBikers
Great service and a prompt delivery!!
40mph crash.....
Thank goodness I invested in R&G crash bungs!
Crashed Honda Hornet 600.....
I visited your place a couple of weeks ago where your fellows fitted crash protectors to my (blue/black) Thunderace.....
I am writing you regarding a testimonial of your products which I purchased for my bike, SV650N K4 in Black, as an extra precaution in case of an accident which have now been "tested" so to speak.
Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you guys, your products are great.
I bought your crash bobbins at the NEC show last November for my CBR 600fs.....
I was unfortunate enough to bin my R1 last night when I hit a big patch of gravel on a very dark & twisty country road..........
I just thought I'd drop you a quick email to say thank you for such a great product.

I had a spill at roundabout doing about 20 mph. The back slid out...........
Whilst riding my Y2K Blade at the Nurburgring race circuit I was leaving a section called Bergwerk.....
I brake hard, perhaps a little too hard.....
World-famous stunt rider Kevin Carmichael uses R&G crash protectors.....
Just thought you might like to see this shot from Brands Hatch last weekend. Our Ritchie sadly crashed out after a good start in the KTM RC8 SuperCup. He was running 4th up to 6 laps in until he had a big slide at Clearways, ran on the grass and went back to 14th. He battled back to 9th place and was pushing to regain another position when 3 laps from home this happened. The crash protectors saved the bike completely ... the only real damage was from the gravel as it slid off the circuit at Druids, but nothing major at all.

So we've now tested them out on the KTM for you! They're just the job.
We even used the crash bobbin again in race 2.
Had it not been for the protectors I’d probably be looking at trashed fork-leg/caliper, clip-on, tank, engine cover, frame, peg and gear lever, swing arm, exhaust………
Unfortunately I lost my Daytona 955i(03) on a patch of diesel last night...
Your crash protectors are brilliant.....
I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for supplying me with a set of crash protectors for my CBR900.....
...if you love your bike: I can recommend everybody to use RG Racing.
A minor low side at Stowe corner, Silverstone while attending California Super bike school. Thanks R&G, good job
On a ride at the weekend my Hamstring went, I did not know until trying to get off
the bike, I had to fall, great 11,000k bike, I fell down, I had to be taken to hospital, given morphine for pain relief, my bikes pain relief was one of your crash bungs, it stopped it been a bitter pill to swallow,only damage, squash and marks to crash bung, wow
"make sure you're protected by R&G if your rubber lets you down!!"...
Made a judgement of error and thankfully the R&G Crash Protectors did what they say they'll do. Good job R&G and thanks for saving my pride and joy.
Oulton Park, March 2004, 1st track day of the year, wet and slippy conditions.....
I have just returned from 2 days on track at Nogaro in Southern France.....
The bike went from under me on a wet bend at about 40 mph......
Your crash protectors have just saved me the best part of a months wages.....
Unfortunately we've had our first major spill this season, GSXR unloaded at over 100mph last weekend at Silverstone.....
...bike slid across track and onto grass OUCH!!!
Hi,

Just to let you know what a brilliant product the R&G Bobbins are......
Hello from France !!

As you can see, I've just tested your crash bungs on my ZX6R ... and the results are amazing !!.......
Hello R&G,

I have assessed a bike which was crashed in the final part of a DRAG race on November 19......
a 2007 Honda Blackbird after having a trip down the road on the right hand side at about 25-30 mph, the only repair which has been carried out on the bike to date is the r/h footpeg has been replaced but everything else is as it was. The R&G Crash Protectors definitely did a grand job of protecting the bike from any major damage.
Just a note to say thanks , your bungs on my beloved Z750 saved my legs on Saturday , mobile phone using driver crashed into me and thank god it was the bungs she hit first. They did their job ,although be it in a different fashion than what they were designed for. The bung/bolt folded in and prevented her hitting my knee.
Alas, no bungs of any make could have saved the bike but I'm alive and well....and 12 witnesses have speeded up the claim.
Lost the front on Graham Hill Bend at around 70 to 80 mph...
Trackday at Donington Park on Saturday 11th July.



I had a proper crash on the exit of McLeans, it was a fast one & the bike went down on its right hand side and slid half way to Coppice.



When I left the medical centre and got back to the bike, I expected it to be in a right proper mess.



To my utter surprise, apart from a minor scrape on the trackday bodywork, the bike was undamaged, and I was able to ride it home. I had some R&G bar end sliders fitted but even they were untouched.



The bike had slid all the way on the upper and lower crash bungs and the exhaust protector – I thought this had worn right through & exposed the can, but when I removed it the can was untouched – amazing!!



Praise be to R&G!!!



PS sorry the pics aren’t great, I’ve had to take them with my left hand due to an injured shoulder!

Hi Martin
Thought you might like these pictures of my beloved bike, once again rg does it again, to think the banana slider, engine bobbin and exhaust cover could withstand the drop of a 230kg bike and save the hole engine is impressive, it is the second time the exhaust cover has saved the can, but unfortunatly it was pushed into the rear shocker on the inside. Unfortunatly with the damage where there are no protectors, was extensive I had to hand my best freind a bill of 5000 pound, hence I am looking for another bike and the first thing that will be placed on the bike is all the rg protectors again, so here's to the fab products that you sell guys, hats off to ya.

cheers liza

Hi there,

I'm writing to say thank you so much for your R&G lower frame fairing crash protectors. I was waiting at a roundabout when some idiot behind me went into the back of me sending me off my bike and my bike into the distance. The bike landed on the right hand side fairng. I was gobsmacked to see that the fairing had not one scratch on it apart from a little nick on the engine casing. I've sent you some pictures for you to see. Thank so much again, I keep saying to my mates who've got bikes to get them and this will prove my point.

Thank you,

Andrew
Bike still ridable after losing control on a left hand bend and going through a 30ft slide.....

R&G New Engine case cover and Aero Crash bobbin saved Andy's R6 at a recent trip to Silverstone - Crash protection did its job and Andy was able to continue on.
R1-tastic!!!

....I picked the bike up, rode back to the pits and continued the rest of the day without any repairs or further problems.
The damage was minimal to both rider and bike which is nice!!!!
