205'ed about 205 times, , but that's okay, it is a great sequence for the spectators.



So, do you have magnesium floorboards on that `wing, throwing all those sparx

dunno - apparently that pic is yellow wolf so you should ask him.


seriously though.. the skid plates are my design and are direct bolt up parts for the kuryakyn floorboards. Good old fashioned steel. Titanium and magnesium run a exponentially higher risk of starting fires on the sides of the road as they spark crazy amounts and are MUCH hotter and stay hot for much longer than steel.



yall seen this one yet?!?!









video is to the point

Maybe an old flat-tracker... but this ride will probably not end well.

Hopefully you made some that direct bolted to the side cases too!
