A few advantages for bar ends:

 

 - They will protect you from getting impaled by the end of the bar in a crash, as has happened before.

- If you turn your bike upside down to fix a puncture or clean/lube the chain, they keep you leavers, computer and bell off the ground. ^_^

 

If you worried about hooking vines and things, if you start with narrower bars before you put on the bar ends, it neutralizes the risk to some extent.  :whistling:  If you slow down to my speed, the obstacles are more manageable.

 

 

PS: I can also list some advantages of saddle bags, but I will save that for another thread.
