    FOUND: Need/Want 2012 NC700x DCT Skid plate on short notice

    I am taking a trip through Utah and the Mojave with my son and brother in law starting labor day weekend. Originally, the BIL was renting a bike and the son had no skid plate on his KLR. Last night I was informed that BIL is bringing his Super Tenere (outfitted for and proven on a Prudhoe Bay trip) and my son is ordering a skid plate. Then they sent me a link to some of the trails they want to do.....

    SO..... I need a skid plate on short notice. Does anyone happen to have one for a 2012 NC700x DCT that they could part with?

    Thanks in advance,
    --Chris

    Your quickest option would be to order a new one and not wait; albeit not the least expensive option. Depends on how long you have to wait.
    Quick check here says in stock and probably could go out today if you called them:
    SW-MOTECH Skid Plate for Honda NC700X '12-'15, NC700S '12-'15, NC750X '14-'17 & NC750S '14-'17 | DCT models only | TwistedThrottle.com

    That is what will happen in a few hours if nothing else pops up.
    I had done some preliminary research for a winter project and had decided that in order I would try to find:

    Honda Bike Pro - I have a pm in to Dale
    AltRider - out of stock everywhere I looked and not listed on their page, although I have an email in to customer service asking who might have one
    SW Motech - as discussed above, available and may be the "final answer" given my time constraints.

    I don't think any are a bad choice, but wanted to see if I could save a little money. Getting ready for this trip has turned into a little bit of a "farkle fest", bead seat, highway pegs, windshield extension, riding pants........ you get the idea

    AltRider has discontinued them, but they found a demo that was used in a photo shoot hiding in a corner. So I may have just purchased the last retail AltRider skid plate for the NC700x
