Just want to let everyone know what an outstanding individual Rick is.

I ordered a GSADV set from him and they look fantastic (they're installed Rick, just haven't had time to take some photos).

Muleson then had Rick custom make a rear rack extension for his R1150GS. My Mom then passed away and we couldn't make payment for a couple weeks. Rick understood, and allowed me the time to get back home and send him a check . He never demanded payment, and was extremely patient.

BTW Rick, put me down for one of the foot flaps. I'll send a check this week.

Bill

Competition

I have your front engine guard on my Adventure and love it... a lot more tough than this other I found. But... It looks like others are trying to copy your original work.





This option might make changing the oil a little easier... what do you think? Oh... and by the way... these are not made by touratech... I saw them on ebay.

My order

Rick,

Thank you for the great protective gear that you sent me. I ordered the center stand skid plate, the front of the engine guard, and the guard for the driveshaft/brake thingy (Tech talk). They all went on without much problem, look great, and I can't wait to ride with them on, and know that I am more protected than before.

Thank you for the great products. I can post pictures if necessary, but I figured there were enough already.

Merry Christmas, and have a great New Year.

Judson

Hi Rick,

I missed the turn at Kitwanga last week coming down the Cassiar... we'll meet this spring, I'm sure.

What do you have in stock or in the pipeline that fits the R1100GS? I just picked up a beauty! I'd like the footflaps, a centerstand plate, a front cover, and ??? you recommend. And a pony, a red sled, a puzzle, and a blue Corvette. Thanks, Santa!

I'm now in Seattle, although I could just as easily pick stuff up in Vancouver if it's easier. Nothing to toy w/ the Border, mind you, just to save shipping time or $$$.

Ciao,

Thanks for the Center Stand Skid Plate

Picked up the plate late last night it took a about a 1\2 hour to put it on my R1200GS adv, the plate came with all the mounting hardware and was a snap to put on.
kildala2000 shipped it over xmas it arrived right after the holidays, I'm pumped thanks alot.

Oustanding multi-pack!

Rick,

The package arrived in a wonderful Cheerios box at the fine waterproof lady's.
Thanks for the multi-pack value offering! So much more than I'd hoped for...

The luggage rack extension is genius!! Installation took <2 minutes.


In lieu of footflaps, the footboards you fabbed work flawlessly! No more boot splatters!


and the extra hardware is superb for holding my backup bicycle air pump:


Also, what a great cockpit writing desk!! Very sano! All the cool kids will want one.


now I can text while riding (just like Ilmostro) and catch up on letters!


So while that's all well and good, Rick, PLEASE tell me how much longer the centerstand skidplate will be on backorder! I'm ready to ride!

Regards,
helikron


p.s. the holes you drilled through the floorboards make a great harmonica when varying speed from 38mph to 94mph... INCREDIBLE-- A Motorcycle Pipe Organ!!
Goodbye, iPod, Hello Skidplate2000!

Rick... if you translate these instructions into German and eliminate the helpful picture, you could charge three times the price...
