It's the ricochet offload unit from Utah cycle sports. $185 u.s.

It's 4 mm thick and beefy. It's rubber mounted to the engine case.

Think I'm going to fab my own frame mounts to take the load off and reduce the chance of punching a whole in the cast aluminum engine cases

Going to add sound dreading material to the inside as when a rock hits it it sounds like a gong symbol going off. " boing!!!"

Nice bike Kenaroo. And perfect place to ride. (Big Bend)

Very few bash plates for the S10 are Big Bend proof though.

And you are right, it is all about how they mount.

Big Bend is also very bad on tires.. I almost destroyed an A-60 Scout in less than 1400 Miles..

I just have to remember the s-10 is not my enduro race bike and I have to back off a little. That's hard to do as the bike is so much fun to go fast on...

OEM Battlewings finally wore out, replaced with K60s. Only commuted on them so far but I'm liking their road manners although the TC light flashes a lot more than it used to.

I'm planning on doing the same thing. How many miles did you get on the battlewings?

It was simply magic today. The ride was so smooth and my new Grbing's heated gear was flawless. I really enjoy the Super Tenere and riding with all this white snow around was absolutely stunning.
