R1200GS Adventure & HP2 skidplates
Hi Guys, Just wanted to let you know that I have engine skidplates and centerstand skidplates ready for the R1200GS ADV as well as engine skidplates ready for the HP2. They look just like the skidplates I already make for the R1200GS but are sized to fit each model. They are made from 1/8" 3000 series aluminum and are hand fabricated and TIG welded.

The standard skidplate set in natural aluminum with shipping included in the USA runs $210.00.
I also make a extra tall front lip option that runs an additional $30.00.
The powdercoat option runs an additional $40.00 and takes about two weeks lead time.

I try to keep my products on the shelf all ready to ship and have very fast turnaround on the special order parts as well.
I'm a one man shop start to finish so I'm the only one you'll have to work with.

I have pictures of my products on my smugmug at: Lot of other cool bike pictures there too.
It's best to reach me at: or you can try to catch me by phone at 507-643-8888.

Thanks for your support.

Thanks for posting the pictures for me G.B. My web master (15 year old daughter) is out of town with friends on vacation. I've been asked if I can make the skidplates without the holes. Yes I can. Not a problem. The engine skidplate runs $120.00 and the centerstand skidplates run $50.00. I'll even knock off $10.00 for the guys that want the engine plate without the holes. I can be reached at Thanks Ernie

Just a bump and an atta boy for Ernie. I bought one of his engine skid plates for my 12GS and it's class A no.1 workmanship!

R1200GS & HP skidplates
Hey Joe, Thanks for the atta boy. Nice to see that the workmanship is appreciated. It gives me something to do and keeps me busy when I'm not riding. I'm heading over to Druid's cabin to go riding in the Black River Falls area. It's close to 100 degrees now. Makes you feel sorry for those poor guys that are trying to roof a house today. Thanks again for the complements. Ernie

Do you offer a skidplate for the F650GS?

F650GS skidplate
Last winter I made a centerstand skidplate for the F650GS for a friend in Janesville. (she rocks by the way) I made a couple extra and have them available now. They have the same style construction with the bent sides and heavy duty mounting brackets with stainless steel countersunk hardware. No engine plate as of yet. Maybe someday. Price on the centerstand skidplate is $50.00. Thanks for the interest. Ernie
