Show us a map with the endangered trails within the proposed monument. The best I can figure, there's no single track affected. The only road in the monument is Turret Rd and it will remain open.

I picked up a stock GS skid plate for my 07 R on ebay for $40 shipped. It's a nice plate. The GS folks treat them like stock Harley pipes. It's the first thing they change for the proper ADV look.
