When I ordered mine a couple months back, I know Paul was super busy. He has outstanding customer service though and will make sure you are happy. I'm a life long fan given the quality of service I received...all my bikes will be upgraded with a HDB setup the day they come home
I too switched from an Acerbis setup and got tired of bending bars and handgaurds with teh Acerbis. Since switching to the HDB, I've crashed harder than I ever did with the Acerbis and there's no sign of bending at all.
