happy with the Altrider rack I went with their bash plate. I can see filter changes being a bit more hassle.
Pluric, you have to remove the Altrider bash plate to change oil? I have the Yamaha engine guards & don't like'm much. I've been looking at that Altrider bash plate & have none on my bike yet(won't use that sump mounted yamaha plate). Rode Nevada a week ago & worried about no plate but made it ok. The Altrider looks good. Thanks.

You don't have to remove it to change only the oil but you will have to remove it to change the oil filter

I did have to extend the built in cut to remove one of the plugs, I just couldn't remove the plug with any of my tools, couldn't get the ratchet with extender to line up with the plug, no big deal, just opened the cutout a little more

Yeah... this bikes are too heavy to ride in the sand. I remind the nightmare in it with the GSA... awful!!
In that trip I was regretting not to come back with the DRZ, riding in the dunes with the Suzuki was great!!

600 lbs never changes. Sand is sand and it's brutal on the big bores.

I need Flydream's support pushers.

Not interesting at all: VERY TIRED!! even with knobs.
My first time in Morocco was with the DRZ, riding in the dunes was fantastic I accomplished a dream when I was looking the Dakar rally.
Second time was with the GSA. When I saw the first dune here I was… the BMW seem wanted to make a tunnel in it!! What a frustration!!
My friend with a KTM Superenduro was a bit better but no too much: gotta!!

(sorry they are not S10...)

That just looks like the least amount of fun you can have on a bike.

I believe they are called "Sand Sherpas". I would need two full-time.

Jaumey, what GRRREAT picts ! Love'em sooo. That KTM pict is lovable---gotta love guys who do stuff like that. Your description of the GSA "Tunneling" thru sand is apt. Mine did,would not climb over mounds of it at all,just tunnelled. A mound of sand drug my foot off the peg once & busted my leg under the Jesse bags. Got soft bags now,a Tenere too.

Not true.

You can change the oil filter with the Altrider plate in place. You have to use a filter that is no longer than the OEM one - 2.5" in length. It clears with about 3/8" to spare.
