    Ernie,

    Many thanks for the top notch skid plate for my 2009 GSA. It provided great protection on a ride through Oregon and California, and your workmanship is truly impressive.

    Thanks for posting the picture and for the nice complement. Very sharp bike BTW.
    I just finished four more engine skidplates this morning and have a huge batch of my famous 304 stainless steel tent stakes ready to ship as well.

    I just sent off a skidplate set to Bill Shaw. It was my very first set powdercoated in gloss black. They looked very sharp. They should be there in just a couple of days. Thanks. Ernie

    I have a 2 1/2 gallon fuel cell available if anyone is interested. It clips in place of the rear seat on the R1200GSA. Price: $425.00.
    Thanks. 2HE

    Hello Ernie I´d like to order one skidplate for my ´07 R1200GS in satin black powdercoat. This will be shipped to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I´m in no hurry, as I know you´re a batch-production kind of guy. Matter of fact, I´ll be away mostly on business (in the US: Texas, Arizona, Utah, California) so won´t be too reachable until mid-May. PM me augusto@zaitech.com.br with price including freight and insurance. [ ]s GusBrazil

    It has been about 5 years since I installed my skid plate on my 2007 GS Adv.
    Last week I finally took if on some unpaved roads. I know, that is sad.

    I had some kind of failure that caused the rubber mounts to shear. Can someone remind me if the mounts for this skid plate are the ones from the stock skid plate or were they provided by Ernie. I am having trouble getting in contact with Ernie, thought I would pick the brains of the other owners.

    Thanks,

    Ernie has taken a hiatus and he did not know when he would be back. I edon't recall if the spacers came with Ernies kit.

    Probably could source them from McMaster-Carr (www.mcmaster.com). Do a search for "rubber sandwich mount" and you should be able to match something up.
