Good thought regarding a cradle. I also have to work in the exhaust running under there too. I am in the process of buying a header so I should be able to mock that in place.

I'm convinced with the thickness of plate I am running that these sets are going to be massively strong. If I crash hard enough to wreck those, my bike will be the last thing on my mind.
We're not out here to rough it. We're here to smooth it. Things are rough enough in town.
