Show Us Your Beat Up Skidplates

Probably a strange idea for a picture thread, but here goes. My DR650 skid plate at 30,000 miles. We have a lot of rocks in the desert around here. It has seen the anvil and BFH multiple times.

Stock skid plate didn't last very long.

Fun idea for a thread, but, my skid plate just got powder coated and it looks brand new! Oh well, looks like I've got to go for a ride and see if I can find a stump or a pile of rocks!

Okay it looks like the Suzukis attract rocks.

I didn't take pics, but the bottoms of the lower frame tubes are flattened. Big rocks can be a booger.
