    Bwahhahaha....

    Trying to validate buying a 1990's Aluminum skid plate because of this one post is like saying you don't wear your seat belt because you know someone who survived a crash when they were thrown clear of the car when it flipped.. hahaha....

    The problem with the internet is that it gives everyone a voice.... many times a poorly informed...unqualified...no relevant experience voice.....whew that felt good.....

    I have broken and bent so much crap on my bikes by bolting on the wrong stuff....

    And even that logic would be stretching it a bit. (Ask me how many times I've had to run back for my jack because the occupant was 'under' the flipped auto...either that or just called for a termination order) :doh

    I started borrowing a line from TV .. 'We did everything we could .... he's gone'. :D

    Back to skid plates. To each his own. But personally I foresee 'repetitive' hard hits on anything directly linked to the engine as being sub-optimal.

    Almost took off my passenger pegs, then fell that very same day and I believe the passenger pegs protected exhaust

    I agree and prefer riding without the paxpegs. That sure is a pretty exhaust though, and without the pegs it will definitely be the rear contact point, along with the tank guards in the front. I bet it sounds nice, too.

    Like I said before, you guys havent seen the carnage that bloke inflicts on his bike, the bike is trashed, the bloke is an animal.
    The plate is but one small piece of damage he has done in his "normal" riding.

    Nothing wrong with the plate, its more a psychological issue with that rider using the wrong tool for the job.

    Bent rim and dinged radiator. Nothing too extraordinary really. Hopefully the damage to the AXP is a fluke. Be interesting to hear AXPs take on it. A split seem there makes it ready for the dumpster.

    For those who want to keep the passenger pegs in order to better protect the exhaust, you can buy these protectors from KTM. (I will verify compatibility in a week). FYI a new passenger peg pillion is 100$ Whereas these are 13€

    Its a 790 Duke part and shows as incompatible with the 790Adv but I checked the KTM parts catalog and saw that duke & Adv are using the same part numbers for pegs/bolts etc so it should fit fine. If not I will have to explain my wife why I lost 13€ :jack

    Keep us posted, it's quite a useful piece of ABS for $13 if it works.
