Prevent rust. Dress up the bolts. Whatever you call it I say they are just cosmetic but some may claim they cause front end wobble if not reinstalled correctly after being removed. :wink:

They also help in high cross-winds! Don't ride without them or you will get blown off the road. :lol:

I swallowed one one day. I waited for it on the other end. Still works fine, just a little smelly.
