I will try to take some pics in the next couple of days. The BBR skidplate looks good. I had to do a little grinding to clear the kickstand, and the mounts were custom machined (but free!), so it does take a bit of work, but I like the look of it better than the "Utah shovel" skid that XR's Only sells.
The XR's Only pegs feel much more substantial under your feet, expecially when standing. I haven't actually seen the Honda rack in person, but I think the XR's Only rack is bigger and looks better IMO. I plan on doing some overnight camping trips this summer, and I expect the rack will be strong enough to carry my gear.
