I took the Black dog plate out and was trying to destroy it. After all I didn't pay for it

This was the result of a ride that was way tame in comparison to the run in Colorado and when I pulled this plate off 3 out of 4 of the rubber mounts were sheared off and the front bracket was totally wacked. OEM aluminum Touratech plate



This was on my strom and was even tamer than the GS ride, bent the crud out of it but no failures. SW Motech plate

Trees have never caused an issue with my skid plates either




I'm loving my new Remus, nearly OEM quiet but with a nicer tone and it's lighter

The Remus is my favorite OPEN exhaust... I have heard many.... But the remus is the sweetest with the potato out....

Update: it looks like the Blackdog skid plate is now on the Blackdog site http://blackdogadvbikes.com/black-do.../294-2142.html

It's about time somebody made a skid plate that works with aftermarket headers with no mods...
It is a full length plate, I will mic the thickness when I get my final production plate. I can say it is at least 3x the thickness of the OEM aluminum plate made by Touratech. I don't have any really good photos but here are two shots of the plate they are using as a template for the production versions which they are building as I type this.

The front has a lot of engine coverage...


The sign is covering it but the plate extends all the way past the Cat on the exaust and is completly flat with no bolt heads showing.

No video of this but here is a video of of me screwing around on my old Vstrom 1000 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_p4M6omm-Q ...

Very interested in the above riding training, you can never have too much training! I'll be in touch

Back to the topic at hand, fitted a Two Brothers Ti pipe to my 800 last night. Very nice piece, but, boy does it seem loud right now. Most un-BMW like.I will probably ride it for a few weeks and see if I get used it, otherwise I'll be getting the cone of silence.

BRAAAAPP!

I attended the Adventure Camp put on by PSSOR and I can tell you it was one of the most worthwhile training classes I have ever taken, and I have taken quite a few. Very worthwhile to say the least. No matter what your skill level is, there is something that can be learn by their course.

Much better money spent than on an exhaust....
