New mounting kit for custom topcase

I wanted to make some "tool-less" mounting kit for my custom topcase. So I let local steel work shop to cut it from stainless steel sheets with laser. Here it is. For more details my blog entry: http://www.gsrider.net/2013/06/topcase-mounting-kit.html

handle bar lights

Leds lights were purchased from Pep Boys but Auto Zone also has them. Less than 20 dollars. The lights are self adhesive but I used Sugru on ends to make sure they don't delaminate.

Rode it and today, a little over 10 years after it left the factory in Germany, it finally rolled over to 35,000 miles. Yep that's right, just a measly 3500 miles a year since new. This thing needs some serious riding miles!
