New skid plate on the market

I’ve been dragging the chain a bit with regards to a skid plate for the KLR. I know I should get one… I just haven’t yet. In what might turn out to be a handy justification for procrastination, a new skid plate seems to have just come on the market.

A poster on KLR650.net is working on a new design which, even in prototype stage, is better looking than any of the others I’ve seen. It’s more closely matches the OEM black plastic one for shape and coverage, and isn’t so square-rigged as most. It’s still cut and welded, unlike the nicely stamped one on the BMW Dakar… but it looks pretty good.
