The Picture is in Washington state. I'm from the US and am taking 8 mos or so travelling around visiting family before returning to Malaysia.
Liscence plate is there - it's on those cute zip ties - it just tends to flip up sometimes like that. It is a KTM rack with the pelican 1520 size cases. It's big enough to hold a 15.4" lap top with case comfortably. If I had it to do over I would've gotten 3 boxes, 1 narrower and 1 wider. I'd put the narrow 1 on the side with the exhaust and for small trips use the small & medium boxes and for long tirps use the medium, large boxes.
