    This skid plate is mounted to the frame in back, instead of the rubber mounting screws at the back of the motor... This also showing the BDCW center stand skid plate...

    The bike with the tank removed... Jason, a service tech at Capitol BMW in Raleigh, puts the finishing touches on the wiring routing. He also installed the HID headlights...

    Thanks for doing that. It is well made, mounts out of the way, and seems to hold a lot of stuff.

    Now, I just need this vendor to custom make me a couple of bags that will fit inside...

    Great Build!!! I wish I had gone with the Blackdog skid plate and center stand guard, IMHO it looks much better than the one I used.

    I may need to sell that one now, thanks! LOL
