No!

When they get bent its a nightmare to remove/mount. Getting them straight is another nightmare.

Unless you go road rash, these wont protect much, a sharp rock can puncture one of the tanks even with bars.

They also add significat weight.

One positive aspect: they can be great grabbing handles when you manage to get yourself and bike in a f#cked up place and need an extra hand.
