Opinion from experst needed

Hey guys. Is a 1-1/8" handlebar as strong as a typical 7/8" handlebar? Either one stay in shape from drops, etc better than the other? Thanks guys.

I've not bent either from drops / mild crashes. 1-1/8 is (Larger tube size) designed to take more abuse.

The 1-1/8 are stronger but aftermarket 7/8 bars are plenty tough. Just make sure you buy a good one. It used to be the 1-1/8 bars had more options but the 7/8 have about caught up.
Here's a link for the different bar measurements Handlebar-Measurements

Good morning ....

Anyone still doing RTE these days? I haven't heard of any lately.

I'm done with training and I have a few days off. I can't do Twin Valley although if the weather sucks up here and its nice down there I may try to make it an overnight.

Hey Jimmy
Your pick. I can make a 11:30 meet just about anywhere. Anyone else around?

Thanks John .... Looks like Twin Valley is out because of weather.

You guys at the GS rally, have fun and be safe. Wish I was there.
