    Rick,

    Center stand skid plate, front engine guard and fat foot arrived yesterday. Got everything mounted up last night and it looks and fits great! Put me down for an oil cooler guard and TPS cover.

    Just installed my fat foot on the '08 GSA today, and the fit and finish are outstanding. I have no doubt that this "foot" isn't going to end up in the fast lane of some super slab, as did the one previously purchased from another (much higher-priced) source.

    Thanks for making a great product!

    I have been looking for a plate like this. Will it fit a non-adventure 1200GS?

    btw: got the Fat Foot and the Center Stand Guard today. :lol3 Will post a pic after they are on.

    Hi Rick,

    Would be great if your plate could mount & release the same way the pillion seat does. The OEM seat latch can be transferred to the plate by the owner as needed.

    My penny tech version using a plastic bread board and a couple of boat tie down cleats.

    NB: The Wolfman Tail Bag is a perfect size fit and the standard eyelets on the under-side make for a sturdy attachment to the board.

    Mounted my skid plate and Fat Foot tonight. They look great.

    Here's the Center stand plate:

    Might help strengthen the center stand. Bent my last one.

    The Fat Foot should make life easier off road. It gives a much larger footprint. No more dangling a plastic puck from a string and trying to get my side stand on top of it.

    It has plenty of clearence from the center stand.

    And the exhaust pipe.

    Thanks Kildala.

    Would like to see more pics of you rear plate for a non adventure GS. I would like to find something that would also have grab rails.

    Got the Oil Guard for the 1200GS - very nice piece of work and easy install. Great service and email support - shipment arrived in Portland in six days. Thought the parts and service were great so I ordered the TPS guard and centerstand today. Can't wait for more 1200GS products from Rick.

    Installed the Fatfoot, Oil Cooler guard, TPS guard, and Centerstand plate on my '08 1200GS. Everything fit well and looks great.

    Thanks Rick for the great service.

    I just installed a TPS, Front Brake, Clutch and Rear Brake Reservoir Guards - the hardest part was figuring out how to get the mirrors off to install clutch and front brake guards!

    Rick's service was prompt, the items arrived quickly and are extremely well made.

    For any readers in Canada looking for locally-made, quality product, I strongly recommend Kildala.
