I'd say go for the linby bars also.
I put on a set of black powdercoated linby bars with the flat top with foot pads, and a month later while at the end of a long wet raining cold trip, I got almost to my parents carport, and lost the monster in the grass and mud, it only fell over about a 45 degree angle and stopped, I was moving just enough that it plowed up a bunch of grass and mud, and crammed the left foot board up to it's upper limit, nothing hurt, but the bar was bent back about and inch, washed the mud off and kicked the bar back away from the boards, got home the following week, and took the bar off and straightened it out with a torch/rosebud tip, got it nice and then repainted the scraped bottom edge. So in the first month, it paid for itself with a no damage to the bike oops. I did know that heavy bikes going down a sloped driveway across the grass can be a pain once in awhile lol ! Oh and I was pitched off to the left side, full leathers all wet, I just rolled out and looked back at the bike, and it was just sitting there halfway to the ground. From that angle, it was easy to pick it back up. I know I would have damaged something if the bars had not been there, such as the fairing, mirror, saddle bags.
I came out good this time. I am planning on the saddle bag roll bars soon also.
