Gotta say you guys are living my dream. With a little luck there'll be a F8 in the garage next year and a trip north the next. Gotta think long term, right?

I'll be watching this RR like a hawk.

FZ6 Skidplate?

Anybody know of a manufacturer? I limit my unpaved riding to graded fire and logging roads, but I'd still like some protection for the headers and radiator/fan.

Thanks.

Oh, and I'll also note that Yamaha rarely gets their low-rpm FI mapping right. This is true of the current gen R1 as well. Yamaha builds great bikes, but this is a constant weak point.
