Over the winter we did some reprioritization, so my above list isn't quite relevant anymore.
I really need to get an 09-12 CBR600RR in to test a set of no-cut frame sliders on, if anyone has one they let us borrow for a few days.
Other than that I'm after a few off-road models:
13-15 Yamaha Viking
12+ Polaris RZR 800
Yamaha Raptor 350
15+ Polaris Ranger 900

I believe we've got some extra T-shirts laying around, so in addition to giving you any products I test, I can also round up some swag for anyone who is generous enough to lend us their vehicle.

Just for shites and guygulls I looked through all 15 pages of "BP"s aka (Black Path Inc.), motorcycle products...........and while I support motorcycle accessories businesses (notably machinists type stuff), I wasn't that impressed by the bland array of products. I guess I will continue to weep for the lack of true American innovation, creativity, and art with function. But good luck anyway BP, maybe it will lead to some sweet mouth watering products some day.

That's why I need your bike for test fitment, to see if they're feasible on a bike which Honda did it's damnedest to cover entirely with plastic. If you're interested go ahead and shoot a pm or an email.

Before I came to this company, this past October, they had a more "shotgun" approach to their product line. I'm working on trimming the fat, refining the existing products, and developing a more focused approach for future products. Change does not happen over night however, especially when your parent company is very heavily automotive and the powersports line is a very small part of that.
Also I'm sorry you were subjected to 15 pages of our website, it's a mess right now and currently undergoing revisions to make it easier to navigate.
