I just got my skidplate- took just a few days from CA to WV
Box was weighed by UPS @ 12lbs, I weighed the plate alone and it is just over 8lbs.
Overall impression is a robust, simple piece. I was wondering if the aluminum was going to be as thick as I would like, and it was that & more. If you damage this thing, you're hard on bikes or jumping off cliffs.
I think I'll just install it and let Mother Nature do the painting and fine finishing work.... but then again now is the time to get it anodized since it's clean & new... blue? No, black... no... Orange!
