I expect this is also a topic which has been covered comprehensively, but I'm adding my 2c. I have seen those ancient Swing chrome crash bars and looked at RG Racing's sliders. One looks too ugly/dangerous to me and the other will cost more than the bike is worth.
This weekend we slipped this edging onto my (as yet) unharmed front fairing. I have a nasty habit of dropping my bike at walking or slower speeds. I'm vertically challenged with recent spine surgery resulting in weakened legs. Also work often on dirt roads and muddy conditions. Get it much past vertical and over it goes. pale
So working on the premise that prevention is better than cure, I'm trying this edging. I was surprised at how reasonable it looks - I was expecting PIG UGLY!

Any sage thoughts from the masters?

Ahh... the memories, I used to buy lengths of the same black edging trim back in my MZ riding days to edge thehandlebar screens and fairings on the various I owned.

Good choice, it's tough old stuff and it looks good and blend in well on a black Silver Wing.

Perfect choice & as Meldrew said, I too have it on my Flyscreen on Vespa PX, tough, reliable and it grips good.

Looks good.

Does that edging have a “U” shaped cross section so that it slips over the panel edge or is it a flat, stick-on type strip? 

And even though you’re half a world away from most folks here can you share a source for that edging please.

Cosmic - it's the common door rubber edging with a u-shape and metal insert.

Unfortunately it's not an online supplier but rather a fabric shop which has all kinds of interesting stuff to buy. Try to stay out of there.

Always get mine from ebay, you can get self gripping with teeth or no teeth

Here’s a US source for similar trim. Do you think that that 5 meter roll is enough to trim the panels (not trimming the front fender)?

Looks like that site has lots of useful items Tim. Not sure it one roll would be enough but it's cheap enough to get two just to be on the safe side. Plus, if you have extra you can use it for something else. Not sure what but something...

Thanks for the link.

Nice work, Mighty Mouse. Thinking I may try to do something similar. Thanks for the idea.

Does this mean panels need not be removed to install?

No panels were removed - just slipped on very gently, although one of the 8 year old clips were damaged. (We heard a breaking noise) But just one. Also reduced the dash rattling a bit. Smile Smile
