Why not just use ammo cans? This and the tank thing, just seems like over-engineering is biting you on the backside.
It'll take a lot more than that to offend me so don't worry. I do it because I want to. simple as that. I enjoy learning new skills, I may fail, but that is the fun part.

This whole project would make most people ask why bother? why not just buy a Vstrom?

The ammo cans?? Cmon this ain't a KLR plus the bags weigh about 7 lbs each and are better looking than ammo cans. I am redoing the lids completely so that will look nicer. I only have about $75 into these bags and that inlcudes the hardware and hinges etc.

I'm going to make up a sticker for them that says:

"Yes, I welded them myself. No I won't make you a set"
