I won't be building any more skid plates until August of 2018. Usually by late September I take off and don't usually get back home until late November, if my wife retires this year I may take the whole winter off. So buy them now when I have material and time to build, or wait until August at the earliest before I have time to build another batch. I am NOT a business, I build these skid plates for the discerning Uralista in my spare time when enough interest has been shown to make it worth my while to build a batch. I don't stock any inventory, I build to order. If your going to buy a Ural in the near future, buy the skid plate now so you will have it ready to bolt on when your new Ural arrives. Thanks for your interest in my skid plate.
Looks like the decision has been made for me, it will have to wait. I just can't justify buying a piece to a bike I don't own...it's like buying a scope for a rifle you don't have...all you can do is look at it.
The Ural will be my year rounder, I don't own a car anymore and when I do own another, it'll likely be a Trans-Am, which means no winter driving it.
I'd rather someone else get it, so that they can actually use it. I can wait for the skid plate.
Good luck to whoever buys the fifth.
Edit: Now let's just hope I don't forget about it, because I likely will be less active here at that point...will be recovered and finally be spending more time riding than sitting.
