Skid plate etc.
 
Dude,
This is a nice piece of work! Got the package today.Have it half put on. The other half tomorrow.

People! This guy produces nice hardware with even metric nuts and bolts for the mounting. Coulda just sent some cheap aluminum fasteners and called good, but he didnt!

I didnt realized just how damn far up north you really are. Wow.

Let me know when the money arrives.

Thanks again,

Will:thumb

Center Stand Skid Plate
 
I bought one of these from Rick for my GS. Ordered on Monday, received following Saturday, installed same day. Great quality on plate and mounting hardware. Mounted quickly, and looks great on the bike.

Great work, Rick!

I have Rick's centre stand piece and mud guard. Nice stuff and great pricing.

Hey Rick, had a few enquiries about where I got my pieces over the summer. Sent them to Adventurer's Workshop because I had some of Andrew's cards with me.

Question??
 
Center Stand Skid Plate

Why is this aftermarket part needed?

Who...yes, WHO, has busted a hole in their cat? Anyone?

Please sound off.

Hole in the Cat you ask?
 
Dude,

Hole, what hole? I tore mine clean off the bike. It took three days to find it as I was going so fast that the distance it took to come to a stop prevented such.Then the bike wouldnt run cause my O2 sensor went with it and I had to push the rig 20 miles to nearest Hwy and wait three days for the nearest dealer to send another cat and O2 sensor. Then I found that the hit was so hard that it tore the wiring for the sensor clean out of the harness! Happened to be a yard sale nearby so I bought a lamp for .50 and re-wired the rig. Runs better now than it ever did. I have it for sale now.

Thats my story.

O, what a mess! If only I had one of these quality made plates in place, my life would have been a whole lot easier.:nod

You know what I mean?

Haven't busted a hole in my cat but I can tell you that there's a lot of paint missing off of the skid plate. Without the skidplate the cat would have taken a lot of nasty hits...off-road as well as on!

3 weeks ago I was headed to the RA in WV. I-81 7 miles north of Roanoke someone lost the entire exhaust system (minus header and cat) off of a Honda Accord. The car in front of me didn't try to miss it, he just ran it over which sent it sliding and tumbling toward me at a high rate of speed. I moved onto the shoulder but it wasn't far enough. I ran the muffler over at 74 mph (according the GPS V.) The stock skid plate is litterally "gouged" but Rick's plate just had a few marks in it.

We didn't go down but the bike did suffer. The brake pedal was bent under the transmission, the rear peg was bent completely backward and was touching the Jesse bag. The ABS went out which of course took the power brakes with it.

Fortuntately we were able to get the bike fixed and back on the road. If it hadn't been for Rick's skidplate the exhaust could have wedged itself under the bike on the centerstand. He may not have built it to prevent an errant Honda exhaust from getting sucked up under the bike but it worked as though he had! When I contacted him to thank him he offered to replace the skidplate if it had in fact been damaged in the incident. :thumb

On a completely different note... Had we been on anything else other than our R1150GS I'm afraid we would have gone down. The wheel isn't bent and I was able to straighten the brake lever with a 2x4 and a hammer. I kicked the passenger peg back into place and can live with a gouged skid plate!

I don't have any pictures of Rick's skid plate right now but I do have pics of the rear rack he made for my Adventure.

Powder Coating....
 
Hello,
I have found a guy in my area that will powder coat my skid-plates.
I will be doing a GS & an Adv skid-plate to see how they turn out. Would there be any interest in the following? ( First come first serve.) :D
If they do turn out to be excellent finish I will be doing all my plates in the powder coat. It will add to the cost of the plates. But not by much. At present I think it will be $50.00us + shipping.

Please let me know.

Thanks.
Ride Safe,
Rick :thumb

Tool Kit Lid "Cover"?
 
Rick,

Do you make a piece to replace the plastic cover over the tool kit for an 1100-GS? Any info. on that item? I've heard good things about your pieces :thumb


Boojum!

Hi Rick
I just PM'd you, unfortunately my bike is an R not an ADV or I'd take you up on the offer. Do you have a picture of the front guard that I've heard mention of?
Regards
Nelson

Remind me not to stay up and drink in Jo Momma, GS not Adventure, but it does have the special go fast paint scheme. :1drink
