Congratulations on your "retirement".

Your products, design, quality, and exceptional customer service are benchmarks in the industry. While it sadens me to know that you won't have a hand in the day-to-day operations anymore, I can only hope that your products will coninue to be available and meet the high standards that you've set.
Anyone that knows anything about sheetmetal fabrication marvel at the level of craftmanship of your cases. I still get complements after 5 years and many thousands of miles. Your dedication and contribution to the motorcycling community will not be forgotten.

Best wishes and a hearty THANK YOU!
Brian

Thanks, Brian! Your words are greatly appreciated. I should note that, the metal fabrication business has been sold. Micatech is still ours, but we won't be producing any more product in the near future. So, our current inventory is only good while it lasts!

See you out on the road

Hey Gypsy

were these a special order, or did you paint them yourself? I just bought a rally edition myself and really like the look that you have there.

thx,

scott

Don't wait too long to get your motorcycle luggage...

The Micatech inventory won't last much longer!

I've found a great deal on a silver set. How hard would it be to recoat them in a black finish? And is it possible to add the 4-way mounting bracket after the fact?

Most powder coat shops with a decent sized oven could do it if you wanted. Mounts are SWMotech.

Hi cba,

We're taking a break from operations for now but any powder coat house should be able to paint them black for you. You'll have to take off all the trim and may need to re-install a few pieces, but it can be done. The mounting brackets are welded on directly to the cases. So if these are an older pair with the single position bracket, you'll need to grind them off and weld on the new 4-way brackets. Unfortunately, we're out of those as well (it's not a part we typically sell a-la-carte). I hope that helps. Feel free to give us a call if you want to chat more.

Are you back from your break? I broke the tabs on my wimpy Multivario bags on my FIRST outing on my "new to me" R1200GS. Nothing stupid, just some rough gravel roads with babyheads, some stream crossings and a few airborne moments with a 225 pound rider. I know that I am tough on my bikes. I have a history of bending rims and breaking parts, which does not seem to amuse my penny pinching, wife who is also my CPA.
I've have had Jesse's on several of my bikes in the past and have been happy with them, but I am very interested in the side loading option your bags offer. I need a set of BIG bags, in black, with the option of being able to move them fore and aft on my 2011 R1200GS, and they can't come off during hard landings!

Which of your bags/mount would you recommend for me? Are they available? Price?
