Great stuff, Flanny! If not for the fact that I just received an elusive KTM factory version of this that'd been languishing in a left coast shop, I'd be onboard for one of yours for sure. (I'm gonna post pics & such when I get the time, as well as properly thank our own Rad for going above & beyond the call of duty in helping out a fellow advrider.)
Anyway, looking forward to seeing & hearing more about your part, bro. Ya gonna come up with a catchy name? Flannyplate? Flannyguard? Flannypack?
