bash plate

I found out that my new LT has a bash plate yesterday. I was putting through a parking lot and went up a small rise. There was a speed bump on top. I went over it slowly but there was a sickening bang as I grounded. I pulled into a parking spot and peered under the bike to see what got hit. I was very relieved to see the bash plate under there.

Re: bash plate

Nice to have if you got speed bumps from hell like we do in CA... They have gotten wise and some of the obstacles have cut outs in the center or at the edge that you can maneuver thru...

I asked around here once about how to avoid hitting the skid plate... The answer: Approach in first gear and punch it!
