I find they are a nuisance when swinging a leg over. I’ve presently got a small Fehling rear rack which is a handy thing, and throw-over bars (Drag Specialities) which are very useful.

Bikes behind me claim my rear fender is a good "rock thrower". Road grime is relatively low.

Both front and back are chopped. The aft fender struts are chopped as well. The only way to modify the struts is to weld on more metal and shape it to an OEM type setup. I always thought on most bikes they were bolted to the frame somewhere under the seat.

What is weird is some people say that the frame is modified and others say it isn't on the 2016 + Roadsters. I think it is but some really disagree. No standard Sporty to sit beside mine at the moment to really check it out.

Girls like the one on my Dyna. It's disposable-I mean unclips easily.

Gives them confidence I guess

Never see one on my XL. Never.
