Yep, I sure could! Figure out what you want and I'll get you priced out.

Thanks! - Kirk.

Shoot me your addy and I'll send you some hinges for being such a good bud.

Wow, that is quite generous!

Jim

All these bags are looking great! I have had a set of Kirk's Panniers since February and I am loving them (Blue and white F800GS on the first page). The build quality is exceptional and I get comments on them all the time (Kirk, these things need to come with a set of business cards for me to hand out to people )

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE!!
The 2 things that I enjoyed the most about buying from Kirk were being able to work with him to get the exact design I wanted and then watching the production unfold over the intertubes...and oh yeah, the bags are freaking awesome!

To be honest, I almost brought you a bottle opener at some point when you were fabricating my panniers, but it wasn't going to get shipped to my house in time. Let me know if you ever source some and I will find a time to come by and have you install it for me.

But, I can source a good bottle opener and install them no problemo! As a matter of fact, I want one, too!I need to write things down so I don't forget!
Glad to see you up and running on the vendors thread! Keep up the great work!

It's cheaper than putting you on the payroll.

Thank you very much, David!!! I'm glad you are happy with your purchase.


I'm sitting down with my needed material list, and I finally wrote down bottle opener. Check! Let me see what I can turn up.

Thank you very much for the offer. Maybe in the future I will take you up on it. Right now I'm just busy enough to where I'm not stressed out, and it's still fun. If I had a website, I probably WOULD be stressed out.

I'm not looking to go full-time with this, so building bags for just the ADV brothers and sisters is just fine with me.

Top shelf work Kirk!

I hope you and your family are doing well.

One of these days soon I'll have to stop by and swap lies.

Good Union Brother Murray's bags assembled...



To go on his DL1000...





He hung them himself and I assisted.



GIVI racks with their mounts removed and drilled for 3/8" hardware.



We don't need no steenkin quick releases...









Matthew's bags going together...



Brent's bags going together...



The corner notcher I picked up recently has become an incredibly useful tool. I took off the fences and the guard and use it to nibble out various shapes. I always make sure to reinstall the guard after use - I can see someone easily losing a finger on this thing.



Plus, the notcher allows me to take my fit-up to the next level...



Matthew's, Brent's, and Aaron's jobs sheared and bent. Time for an all night TIG welding extravaganza. ;)



But first, Arthur's Ducati briefcases need to ship out.

Whew!

THAT was a full day!

Time for some jalapeno poppers and a beeyah!



With any luck, gasket, lids, and hardware tomorrow...

You never fail to impress Kirk!

BTW, these look HUGE!
