Some of you know that I was stranded in the Andes last week after cracking my oil pan. We were trying to get to a village at night, riding two up after Ron's accident, I hit a rock and damaged my oil pan. I'm going to tell it like it is, the Alguard engine guard that is supposed to protect my Versys did just the opposite, it caused the damage. The Alguard mounts to those tabs that are welded to the oil pan, the impact was not that great, the rear tab cracked at the weld and the oil drained out. I was stuck up there for three days until I found a truck that brought me into Moro, Peru. In my opinion the Alguard design is poor, I should have known better than to mount it on my Versys.
