Dave, I'm sold on your product. But I won't be getting my bike until sometime over the winter so I can order the skid plate now, or wait a few months as you roll out your incremental improvements. I'd hate to buy today only to find you've somehow improved the plate before I even put my bike on the road (March 15th is when our snow tire law ends and our season starts - as long as there isn't snow/ice on the roads). I'm also going to get your side stand foot enlarger.
Also, I'd been pretty sure I was going with the Touratech top luggage rack (the larger of the two) and Zega Pro (anodized black) panniers. I hadn't really looked at your top plate... Are you able to objectively compare the two? :)
