Happy Trails has developed a unique protection product for the
R1200GS boxer motor that we like to call … skidders. These custom designed
devices are like small skid plates for your cylinders.
We craft the skidders out of the same adventure proven 3/16” aluminum as our
skid plates and make them specifically to complement the stock OEM engine
guards. Our skidders mount between the outer OEM engine guard tube and lower
frame connection area to add much needed strength to these OEM “crash bars” in
addition to protecting the lower cylinder head. This feature allows our
lightweight skidders to replace the need for the heavy steel reinforcement bar
many GS Adventure riders add to their OEM engine guard. And, in our humble
opinion, they look way cooler ...
The HTP skidders are precision cut, bent and hand welded at our factory in
Boise, Idaho before receiving an attractive yet durable Silver Vein
powder coat finish. This black/gray hammertone-style finish complements any
GS color scheme and is the perfect companion to our
HTP Skid Plate.
Designed specifically to reinforce and
complement the R1200GS/GSA OEM engine guards
Easy clamp on installation eliminates the need
for the dreaded drive-in inserts that take an act of Congress to be removed.
That’s right, unlike our competition, you don’t have to take a sledgehammer
to your bike to use this product
Made out of sturdy, yet light weight 3/16”
Our tubular bar mounting clamps utilize High
Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) bushings to help protect the motorcycle frame
