Best GSA skid plate available

I have used 2 of the 3 other major brand skid plates in the past. Decided to give the ACD a go, mainly because of the very attractive price. I am very impressed with this product. Installation was extremely quick and easy, they even provide a handy tool for removing the center stand spring. Quality of construction, design and welds are extremely good. But what makes this skid plate stand out from the others besides the price is the way it attaches to the bike. It does not mount to the engine, but the crash bar and center stand mounts (brilliant), therefore putting no stress on the engine and relieves the motor from the jolts it takes from going over obstacles.
In my opinion this is by far the best skid plate out there. Brilliantly engineered to protect the bike, half the price of the others easy installation and removal, not only protects the motor from rock and debris damage but also from the jolting shock that results from climbing over obstacles, what more would would you want.
