Falling leaf rally

Hi Guys, Just wanted to say thanks to everyone at the falling leaf rally this last weekend. It's a long 600 mile ride one way for me and I always have a great time. I got to meet a few new inmates and get caught up with a few old ones. This was the last rally of the season for me. Hopefully the salt trucks will hold off for a while so i can get as much riding in as I can.
Thanks again. Ernie (2HE)

R1200GS skidplates

Just a quick note to tell Tim that a skidplate set is on the way to Oregon.
Thanks and enjoy the skidplates.
I'm headed over to Madison this weekend for the Madison BMW club dinner. I loaded up my GS for the ride over tonight. I hear they have a REI store over there and I'm looking forward to a visit. I packed a few door prizes to give away at the dinner. Always fun to spend some qualitity time with my BMW buds.
Have a good weekend. 2HE

Awesome Products

I purchased the skid plate and center stand plate for my 2008 GS Adventure and they both rock!

The fit and finish are first rate. The quality of the material is top notch. Mine are powder coated stain black (from Ernie) and look very tight on my GSA. It ads a whole new dimension to the bikes toughness and adds superior protection.

Ernie is a stand up guy and provides a great product and design at a reasonable price. Five stars from this guy. Wished I had them on our Prudhoe Bay trip earlier this year.

Skidplates

I'm Twin headlight Ernie and I endorse this message.

Thanks for the atta boy. I sure appreciate the complements.

I finished vending at my last rally of the season and am already looking forward to spring and the 2009 rally season. I already have some new inventory to add to the new season.

I'm looking for a F800GS in the LaCrosse Wisconsin area to make a prototype skidplate pattern from. The owner of the loaner bike will get the first skidplate free of charge in exchange for the loan of the bike. Any takers? Contact me at dakotabeemer@hotmail.com

Thanks again for your support. 2HE

skidplates

got mine from Ernie almost two years ago and though my most recent getoff sheared the connectors the plate did its job perfectly and is now reattached. Great plates!

skidplates

Hey Nimrod, Glad to hear the skidplates are doing the job. I've received quite a few e-mails with pictures over the years showing the skidplates at work. Cool to see them in real world experience. Take care.

Also, I have a satin back powdercoat skidplate set going out to Richard in California in the morning. It's o the way. Thanks. Ernie

R1200GS skidplate sets

Hey Dave, Your skidplate set is on the way to Texas. I suppose you're one of those lucky guys that gets to ride year round. They salt the hell out of the roads up here and it's really hard on the bikes. Thanks and enjoy the holidays. Ernie

Adventure skidplate set arrive today, on the porch when I got home.

10 minutes in the shop, they are now installed, and I am ready to ride in the AM. Fit and finish are great.

Thanks for the shipping, wrapping, and beautiful finish, sort of a shame they will be always on the bottom and in the dirt.

38 degrees tonight, and sunny and 65 tomorrow.
