"The first time I saw a Rugged Rider rack system for the DRZ, it was in prototype form. Even then, I could see it was one of the most inventive, functional, attractive and well executed rack systems I'd ever seen. The expandibility concept is brilliant."

    Testimonials:

    "This thing is awesome! Seems quiter, has great coverage on the water pump and ignition covers, and it looks good. It's probably the thickest skid plate I've ever put on a bike. You should be able to sell these like hotcakes." --Josh Pendergrass

    "Hi Nicole, have been looking for a really nice skid plate for some time and I finally found yours in Google images. I really like the design. With Christmas just around the corner, I'm thinking Santa will come through." --Wayne Bovi
