Some important progress this weekend. Starting to look like a motorcycle.
New skid plate:
1/8 inch 5052 alum plate
Picked the easy mounts. Will add a front crash bar next to support the front better.
New tires, Shinko 705. Took a short spin down my road for a test drive. Pretty solid feeling on gravel and some dry ruts, much better than the street tires:
Next up is the headlight and and extending the kickstand.
