The pad is to protect the frame, the handlebars can easily swing around during transport, messing around ect...the bars will hit the top tube and crack or dent the frame i also have some clear sticky pad on my downtube so the brake doesnt hit.

Those also help when you lock your bike up, you can lean the top tube pad aginst the rack and it'll cushion the frame from scratches and dents.
