For my 350 frame, I chose the welded because I liked the look better. Just personal preference.

I bought the Motolanna one and the one from Webike because of the same reasons as 85RZwade. Optics.
We use them in race bikes so weight advantage is another point.
I don't see how the welded shock mounts are a disadvantage against the machined ones.

On a slightly different note: when I placed my order a few days ago, the standard turnaround time was stated as 2-8 weeks PLUS possible additional delays due to Covid. Got an email this morning that it has shipped!  :cheerleader: :whoop: :celebrate:

Had the same experience last fall. The delivery time was much shorter as announced
