Looking for Pic of Dan Vesel Skid Plate

Hi all,

Do any of you have any pictures of the Dan Vesel Skid Plate on one of your bikes? Here is a link to his site for an idea of what I'm talking about.
http://community-2.webtv.net/CHERDAN...ies/index.html I am excited about this skid pad but I would like to see it on some bikes. I have searched several forums and have found out the good/bad of this plate. However, there are almost no pictures of it on bikes. ANyone got one?

Thanks

Here's a shot from the side. Is there a specific view you're looking for?

kwkride,

Thanks, thats a nice shot. Actually the pic you posted is one of the ones I really wanted to see. Is it rubbing on the exhaust pipe?

No, it's close but it doesn't rub.
The mount is very stable. I use it for jacking up the bike.

I have one on my bike. It doesn't rub the exhaust pipe. Mine has taken a few good hits too and is holding up good.

I'm looking for some pics of it, or I can go snap some new pics.

Given the $400 plus oil cooler sitting fully exposed would it not be prudent to install a Motech that wraps up and provides the cooler some protection?

I agree, the Motech is a nice piece. I like the fact that bolts are on the sides and won't get f'ed by rocks plus the extra coverage. This isn't a beauty pagent.
