    Hi JoyRide, :D

    Thanks so much for the comments on the rack and the skid plates and I'm glad everything went well with the sizing of the rear rack. It's always a little difficult making things without having the bike to build and fit the items. Another happy customer. Here is the picture of the finished product.

    If anyone is interested I still have product ready to go... :lol3
    Just drop me a PM with your address and what you want and I'll have it out to you.

    Ride Safe,
    Rick :D





    ]Just put on the skid plate set and rear rack that Rick made to fit nicely between my happy-trail bags. Rick even supplied a set of spacers to raise the rack to the same height as the top of my bags... making a flat surface between the bags.

    One of my best add-ons.[/QUOTE]

    This piece of hardware has obviously taken one for the team! I can't imagine not having one. Besides the gravel/rock protection it affords the undercarriage, it also aids in sliding the bike over trees, stumps, and large rocks. ( I've been seen riding really, really fast through some serious sh*t. ) If that's not enough, the manufacturer has contacted me to ensure my satisfaction with his product. My opinion, works as advertised, great customer service, five stars! FYI I also have the front engine guard (that's taken a few hits as well) and the mudflap extension.

    Buy 'em now!

    What is that kickstand extension made from?

    I like the above picture of the rear rack for the adventure. I just stuck a fairly plain piece of aluminum on the back of mine and would like something nicer, better holes for attaching things. Do you have the diminsions of the rack you sell? Can you make them custom sized?

    I took delivery of Rick's Adventure center stand skidplate and engine guard last week. This is good stuff. :thumb



    I put the skidplate on right away . . . it only took me about 10 minutes. I haven't been anywhere to bash on it yet, but it seems like it'll do the job, and it looks great - fits right in with the look of the bike.

    I intend to mount the engine guard one evening this week, and fully expect the same from it.

    Y'all need to jump on this while Rick's got things discounted. You certainly won't find as fine a product for that price anywhere else, IF you can find it.

    I received my skid plate for my R1100GS and was really impressed with the quality. Super easy install. I'll post pics whenever I get the camera out again. Great product & great price! Thanks!!!!

    Hey everyone, I just received my second set of plates in really short order from Rick! They arrived within a few days of my request, and they look great and were easy to put on, even in the dark... which I did, because the sun is setting earlier nowadays. Excellent product, awsome price. I am pleased once again. Thanks Kildala2K!


    By the way, I think the black ones look skookum the Adventure!

    Just received my order. Arkansas' US postal workers suck! The gear is most excellent and what a VALUE! The kickstand extender is cool nice simple design.
    Thanks dude
