Did yours work out in the end?
It does, no problems so far.

Amazing what you can do with $10 worth of reflective tape.

Very nice!

What size pelican top box is that on the back? And do you have a small one behind your license plate? Size? Very nice indeed!

When I got out of the Navy back in 1990, somehow a whole roll of Mil-Spec 3M reflective flight deck tape found its way into my stuff. I still have the roll and use it liberally on my panniers and other things. I even completely covered the bottom of both panniers on my GSA in the unfortunate event the bike decides to take a nap at night. Safety first!

A bucket is not just a bucket...

Well I didn't do anything for the bike today, but I did manage to get it's rider a new Schuberth C3. Does that count?

Hope to give a maiden voyage to the new lid tomorrow.

I've been using mine now for about 170,000 miles. One went away when an unnamed dealer destroyed the rear wheel and replaced with a used one. They didn't replace the stem, and given the lack of abilities had to deal with from them, I decided to not bother with bitching about that.

I've used mine for a few years now. Can't see any reason why I would replace them with a tyre change
