The Givi skid plate attaches to your engine casing doesn't it, that can't be good.
My happy trail plate had a workout on my last two rides, on one I got hung up on a log on top of it and had to be pushed off. On the way back I went over it at speed and slid across it and clear with no issues. Yesterday I was doing a mountain climb with large rocks, deep ruts and potholes etc, and my skidplate was hitting all over the place. Lots of scratches on it now, but the bike is fine. It mounts at the back to the center stand bolts, and the front attaches to my Givi bars, so nothing touches the engine. it is also a very solid plate.
