I had these bars on my bike - they saved it when I went down last year. I had broken ribs, the bike had a broken mirror and turn light - that's it. Not a scratch on the handlebars, tank, or fenders. Well yes the crash bars got scratched up but they held, so I'm getting a shiny new set.

what are freeway bars used for. Are they for mounting more confortable foot pegs on for riding on the freeway?
Wade on Jul 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Hello Wade, Freeway bars are basically added protection for you and your machine in the case of an accident. The Freeway bar will give some space between the bike and the ground, this could save your leg. The bars also take most of the impact if the bike ever goes over, and if that ever happens it's a lot easier to replace a freeway bar than it is to replace the side of and engine. Overall freeway bars are a great investment plus they just look good. Wade, if there's anything else we can do for you feel free to contact us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.

What is the size of the freeway bars for a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Mean Streak?
BroMoto on Mar 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! With the cobra freeway bars your looking at these would be 1\
I'm looking at the Cobra Freeway Bars, no part number given and no specifications listed, it just says "Cobra Freeway Bars". In the questions section, it was asked 4 times "What is the diameter of these bars". Three different answers were given. 1.5", 1.25", and 1". In order to purchase highway pegs, it is imperative that I know the actual diameter of the bars. So, which is it, 1", 1.25, or 1.5"?????
null on Feb 2, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! Cobra Freeway Bars are made from 1.25 inch thickwall steel and deeply chromed for strength and long-lasting good looks. Cobra Fatty Bars are made with 1.50 inch thickwall steel.

The highway bar is a high quality product but the installation instruction sheet was vague and should have included a diagram.

Looks and feels good. Easy to install.
Looks solid on my Honda Shadow Phantom. DIY installation is easy and fun, just needs a pair of straight hands, a few wrenches and about 40 minutes of time.

People say this is a life-saving upgrade however installation guide explicitly states that these bars were not designed to withstand an impact or fall so should not be considered as a safety mean. Ok, good to know. But what is this thing for then? Hope I never have to find out the truth.
Work in progress.
