    I prefer the natural aluminum finish but I do have a friend with a powder coat shop for anybody that wants a particular color. I know that he does gloss black and satin black on a regular time frame. Just let me know if you would like one and what color. Thanks Ernie. dakotabeemer@hotmail.com

    Hey Mike, A pair of skidplates are on the way to Florida. Have a great time in Mexico. Hope you find time to do a ride report when you and your riding buddies get back. Ernie

    Hey "Twin headlight Ernie",

    thanks for the HP2 skidplate. I haven't had a chance to install it yet. However first impressions are impressive; excellent quality work, well packaged and quick and cheap shipping to Canada.

    thanks!

    Ernie, I just sent you an email for a skidplate. I wish I would have had the bigger skidplate when I was in Mexico. I wouldn't have bent my subframe.

    My plates arrived yesterday. Fit and finish are spot on. I'll try to get some photos later but I have to go ridin' first.

    Thanks Ernie!!!

    Hi Gary, Glad to hear you are happy with the skidplates. I've been very busy making more for the upcoming rally season. Looks like I'll be at the Hiawatha rally, Soldiers Grove rally, Wisc Dells rally, Falling leaf rally, Pecatonica swap meet and the BMW national. Hope to see some pictures soon. Thanks Ernie

    These were taken a few weeks ago, the morning after I got the plates in.

    I couldn't be more pleased with the fit and finish. The guys I rode with should be ordering theirs soon.

    Thanks Ernie

    Thanks for posting the pictures guys. It's great to see the bike in it's natural habitat. By the way some skidplates are on the way to " Baja Joe". Hope to see some great Baja pics in the future. 2HE

    Hey Ernie,

    Just received the centerstand skid plate for my 1100 GS...very nice.

    Keep me posted on your development of the engine skidplate for the 1100/1150 GS. You can put me down for one, just let me know how much it'll cost.

    Thanks,
    Mart-O

    p.s. Win Twins! :smile6
