What are on the ends of Randy De Puniet's bars? They look like dirt bike finger protectors but thin enough to be a lever. Rear brake lever maybe but why on the left bar? I'm not sure if it's on the right one. I only have one close up and the playmate is topless, so I can't post it.

Ok, I found one without a playmate ...

They are there to protect the levers from being pushed inadvertently in the event that he comes together with another rider/bike. One of the best examples was in motogp a few years ago when Sete hit the back of Capirossi's bike with his brake lever, causing him to flip and take a bunch of other riders out.

He's a crash magnet...he needs as much ancillary protection as possible!
