I have read in other threads that there have been a number of issues with the Canyon Cages as far as fit and installation go.

Can anyone who has the CC bars comment?
I just installed mine a month or so ago. Was going back and forth between Murph's and the CC's. When I went to order, Murph's was out of stock so that made the decision for me. I too heard of some install problems but mine went on first try piece of cake. The only thing that bothered me was the right side rear bar is at a different angle than the left (tilts up toward the outside). Read several others that noticed the same thing. Once the bags are back on you don't notice it. Look good, SUPER EASY to put on and off and I really like the way they look installed.
Cold, Rain, Heat and a BUNCH of miles every year. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOTORCYCLE OWNERS AND MOTORCYCLE RIDERS!

I got in on a group buy on the Canyon Cages a couple years back. Installation was easy on all but the Right side front (sitting on the bike) one  of the upper mounting brackets  was very close to a something on the motor, and I had to file off an edge of the mounting bracket about 1/8 of an inch. not a big problem, just an irritation that it wasn't plug n play  ::) Happily haven't found out if they will protect anything yet :great:

Note that in the video they do free drops. All my drops have been slow, or slow enough that I could control it somewhat.

I have Murphs, and once they hit it's REALLY easy to keep the handlebar or mirror from hitting (better leverage, bike has lost momentum). I imagine it would be similar (though not quite as easy) with the Canyon Cages - once they contact the ground, most of the momentum of the bike falling is gone.

I've had my Canyon cages installed since the group buy here on the forums almost 2 years ago...  I've been through a number of drops in the time since, and the difference in drop distance and breakage has been drastically reduced.

Prior to he cages I have dropped my C10 in a number of stand-still and low-speed tipovers, and something almost always got crunched.  It was basically, "Oh man, what did I just break?" and it was usually something critical.  I've done damage to the clutch and brake levers, left mirror, shifter, bags and locks/hinges, antlers, and windshield.  Yes, I have managed to make my bike do a standing flip.

The flip was my latest drop, accidentally and absentmindedly unstrapping my C-10 from the wrong side on the trailer....  The left-side ratchet let loose, the bike rebounded against the right side suspension and rolled off the right side of the trailer.  And my canyon cages saved the bike from all but a broken slipgrip iPhone mount bolted to the windshield.  Now, when I do the stupid crap I did all the time without my bars that always resulted in, "Oh crap, what did I just break?" instead I find myself saying, "Whew, if it hadn't been for those bars..."

I've found that at a standstill, a resisted drop onto the cages will stop the bike from going over.  Highway pegs mounted to the angled upward section can absorb a bit more
momentum, but I can say that if it's bad enough to make the bike roll over, the cages won't stop it.  Instead the bike does more of a "roll" than a "flop".  It seems to have an effect on the amount of damage the bike takes in a rollover instead of a simple drop.

Did I mention it makes the bike 150% easier to pick up and they look awesome?  Cause that's also true.

Here you go.

Where did you get the cages?
