    I feel your pain...spring just doesn't want to come it seems....I don't feel as bad as we have no where near that much snow.

    Looking over the valley in Big Bend State Park River Road.

    This one is outside of Sonora Texas .. loaded up with the giant loop bags.. really good for a 5 day trip with hotels..

    and this is why I need to beef up the skid plate.. bottomed out so hard that it pushed the skid plate into my oil filter and dented it..

    The perfect S10 - stripped down and dirty (the rear foot pegs can go too). Great looking bike. :1drink

    It's the ricochet offload unit from Utah cycle sports. $185 u.s.

    It's 4 mm thick and beefy. It's rubber mounted to the engine case.

    Think I'm going to fab my own frame mounts to take the load off and reduce the chance of punching a whole in the cast aluminum engine cases

    Going to add sound dreading material to the inside as when a rock hits it it sounds like a gong symbol going off. " boing!!!"

    Nice bike Kenaroo. And perfect place to ride. (Big Bend)

    Very few bash plates for the S10 are Big Bend proof though.

    And you are right, it is all about how they mount.

    Big Bend is also very bad on tires.. I almost destroyed an A-60 Scout in less than 1400 Miles..

    I just have to remember the s-10 is not my enduro race bike and I have to back off a little. :evil That's hard to do as the bike is so much fun to go fast on...

    OEM Battlewings finally wore out, replaced with K60s. Only commuted on them so far but I'm liking their road manners although the TC light flashes a lot more than it used to.

    I'm planning on doing the same thing. How many miles did you get on the battlewings?
