    Rick,
    I figured that might be the case.
    Any chance you have a f/c gaurd in development for the 1150GS non Adv?
    I have seen something before that is an aluminum plate that mounts to the front cover with longer bolts and some standoff bushings. Drill some holes in it for cooling if needed, powder coat and I'll buy it. :thumb

    Thanks,

    Hi Rick
    My compliments on the skid plate as well, hoping to bounce test it in about 30 days. I am also interested in the rack extension for the gs with BMW plastic bags. Let me know when you provide some details. :thumb

    I bought and installed one of his mud guards. Works great. Fast service, and even though the first one shipped got damaged by very rough handling by the mail service, another one was shipped out right away. Thanks!

    If anyone is thinking about buying one of these plates, I would recommend buying two. Buy a second plate for one of your riding buddies. The price for two "RICK" plates is equal to one of the competition. Then you will be protecting your buddies bike right along side of your own.
    The best thing I have found after buying the few plates I have bought from Rick, is he is a very nice, honest and caring person. I have done well with Rick and his parts. But most of all I have found a friend as well.
    Thanks Rick for the latest mud guard and extra screw (which I twisted off).
    Your friend

    Just installed my new rack
    First off, customer service was most excellent!

    Here are some pics. I think you'll agree that its real purty
    I particularly like the rear lip and the round holes are pretty handy too

    Just installed this beautiful set of plates. Top notch fit and construction. Feel more confident riding over sharp rocks.
    Thanks!

    Hey Rick! Just wanted to throw in another good note for your plates - they also work great at keeping that early season salt off the front of the motor.

    Well, I have as of yesterday ridden 580 miles of Alaska's salty and sandy roads.

    I have received free coffee, due to my being the first rider there this year. In other words not really the best practiced patience, waiting for safe roads on my part. I couldn't wait any longer.

    The plates I purchased from Rick have done an exceptional job of keeping the sand and salt from scouring the front and bottom of my scoot. The best part is the cost. I don't know how Rick does it. Every time I rinse the bike off, I thank Rick's protecting plates for keeping my investment safe.

    I will leave this morning for a 400 miler. The roads will be wet with melting snow and sandy from all the winters sanding trucks. The plates will do the job promised as well as any other expensive plates. The extra rear rack plate (Rick's) will haul that extra load I feel safer carrying.

    Thanks again Rick

    Your friend
    Gusgus

    p.s. see you this summer

    Hi there Rick,

    Yes riding has been pretty great. The side roads aren't, but who go's there? In Alaska it is a good way to get shot anyway. Some shack dwellers seem to believe the road belongs to them too!
    But the main roads are good before dark. The water running (draining/melting snow) across the roadway becomes pretty tough to cross about dark thirty. So just like in Transylvania, it is best to be home and inside before dark.
    Been tending to a friend who has a mystery illness today, with the Gruverhood bunch.
    About an hour or so ago we left him at the hospital. He seems to be doing better although not running or jumping yet.
    The time frame of your arrival would seem to be close to the D2D ride. You gonna make it? We are also going to do your fav ride to Inuvik while our brides await the soldiers we are to return back to Dawson for them. We will be in route to Dawson on the 15th and 16th, and returning back to the Home spot on or around the 20th, or even a bit after.
    So if'n you are here looking fer me look North and I will return ASAP. OK?

    I just recieved my skid plate from Kildala, it has great workmanship and was very easy to install. Less than 10 min. 10mm wrench and a flat head.
    I would post pictures but I'm not allowed to, " may not post attachments", not sure why?
    Good Product.

    Thanks Rick
