Quite a few orders have come in the last few days. I'm working on editing a few of our drop videos for this bike right now because I know a lot of people are getting antsy to see them. As soon as I'm finished with that, I'm going to put in all the recent orders so I can get an updated order quantity. Once I know for sure how many of the fronts and rears we have sold and what tier we're on, I'll be sure to update you guys.

Ordered a set of fronts and backs today!

Anyone want to start keeping track of numbers ordered?

I'll start ... 1 Front set, 1 Back set.

We have 12 sets ordered at this point in time. If we can get to 20, I'll move it up to tier 3 pricing. The drop video will be up by this afternoon and hopefully that will coax some people into placing their orders.

Glad to see you back, Ryan.  I know that it was a trying time for you.

Thanks, man. I appreciate that. It has been quite tough for myself and my family lately. Some people just don't seem to have much compassion but I'm glad to see that you guys understand the difficulty I've had as of late. I'm doing my best to get back on the ball and appreciate everyones patience and understanding!

Here's the drop video! We had quite a few smaller videos so I did my best to edit the best of them together. Forgive my editing skills, though. I'm using a free video editer so it may be a tad choppy. Also, an initial note, if this bike goes over hard enough with the cages installed it will ding the mirrors (as you can see in the video). Normally during real-world drops, the bike doesn't just fall over like this though. Most of the time, the rider is on the bike and slows the drop which will keep the bike from rolling over and hitting the mirrors. The only time the mirrors will hit is during an unrestricted drop like you see in the video.

In order to stop the bike from going over that far, the bars would have had to be further out from the bike by quite a bit and just looked way too weird when we mocked them up. We figured a single replacement mirror was a small price to pay if the bars could protect all other parts of the bike which it does very well. This guard is extremely stout and took a bunch of unrestricted drops from straight up without breaking or bending whatsoever. I believe we dropped the bike a good 6-8 times, one after the other and the bars performed extremely well.

In addition to the drop video, I'm also including the short videos of the guards being installed and removed. These videos show how quickly the guard can be removed and reinstalled once the interior brackets are installed. This is essentially our version of a "quick-release".

when it goes over on the mirror, it's going to bend the fairing support and crack the fairing by the marker light. Usually the tank gets dinged too. Just an honest observation. you're probably right though, it wouldn't rock over so far with someone straddling and slowing the drop. Steve

Just wanted to give everyone a bit of an update on what's happening with the Group Buy. We're currently about 6 sets away from Tier 3 so we're going to extend the Group Buy a few weeks until 5/1. That should give us plenty of time to get a few additional orders in so we can offer you guys the best pricing possible. Getting to Tier 3 will lower the cost to $165 for the fronts and $112 for the rears which is a very good price for these guards. We're currently working on the first batch of guards which should be ready to ship out early June. 

We had a slight delay because we decided to order a new die for that tight lower bend on the front guards. Previously, we were manufacturing that bend by welding a few different sectioned radius' together which added to the cost and difficulty of making the guard. So, we invested money into a smaller die that will allow us to make that bend without sectioning the bar which simplifies the process and helps maintain the strength of the bar itself.

I'm in on the front and rear sets.  I'm supposed to be getting my insurance check on Wednesday, I will put in my deposit as soon as I have it.  I hope you'll include me in the group buy.

Of course we'll include you in the Group Buy! As long as your order is placed by 5/1, you're good to go. Also, there is no deposit required. We do not charge you anything to get added to the Group Buy. We'll bill you for the entirety of the product once it's ready to be shipped out.

An update: We're 2 orders away from Tier 3 pricing! So, those of you who were waiting for Tier 3, get your order placed and we'll be there!

I just sent an email, I got a reply stating that you are out of the office.  I can't call today, we got some extreme weather last night and the cell tower near my house is out.  Today being the last day of the group buy, I hope I get included...

Ordered a set of front Cages today.  Tier 3 prices.  (Yes, that was a typo, it's $265.)  I already have the Rivcos, but I think these will be worth it for the ease of removal/installation.

I just got your email and responded. You did indeed make it in time so I got you added onto the list.

We have hit Tier 3 pricing! So, we're looking at $265 (the $165 price was indeed a typo!) for the fronts and $112 for the rears with free shipping for domestic U.S. customers. Today is officially the last day to get your orders in but I'll probably accept orders over the weekend and Monday if you happen to ask nicely. I believe we're at about 20 sets now which isn't too bad.

If you are interested in ordering, you can do so via forum PM, email, or call it in directly via our toll-free line. I will be in the office til 3pm PST today. If you happen to PM or email me, I will be out of town this weekend but I will be sure to get back to you first thing Monday morning when I'm back at the office. Happy Friday to you all!

No sorry... Seeing that it has been inactive for over a year I can't see giving it sticky status any longer...
