    Just ordered my plates from Ernie for my 1200 GSA...looking forward to getting them ....have a quick question though. Would anybody know if the side stand is the same on the GSA as it is on the standard GS. Would like to get a fatfoot from Ernie but neither he or I knew the answer to that question. Thx

    Another thing to consider regarding the shape and size of the side stand is if the center stand is the same. The issue, if its not, is if there is enough clearance for the fat foot even if the side stand is the same.

    Wow...these fit great....look great....shipped quickly....fantastic workmanship...what can I say. These pics are not great but you get the idea. By the way Ernie, the side stand foot on the Adventure is quite different than the base 1200GS. If you decide to design and create a fat foot for the adventure...I will be your first customer. Great job...thx ernie.

    Hey Bobby, I have your skidplates ready to ship. I made the engine skidplate the way you wanted it without the vent holes. You may have it by the end of the week. Post a picture if you can when you get them installed. Thanks Ernie

    Been looking at the photos of the skid plates fited and notice that they all have the crash bars removed, is that just because they just couldnt wait any longer to take a picture or do they have to be left off.
