I guess that the price we pay for exclusivity.

Can't wait to see the pictures.

Al said there will be two types of metal frames, steel and stainless steel, the latter being a pound lighter. They all should be back from the powder-coater by the end of the week and ready to ship. Now in Tijuana heading for the airport to fly to Portland for a book signing event at the dealer tomorrow night. See you there!

I got them from BMW of Santa Cruz http://www.bmwsantacruz.com/Merchant2/index.html

I adapted the caribou cases used 15 MM TT mounts and also have a set of yukons II http://www.moto-sportpanniers.com/soft.htm to have both soft and hard case options


the top pack is a soft case from pack safe

Hey Glen!
long time no talk, but i've been following your developments! Congrads on the new baby !


So, that frame that Al is going to introduce, going to accept only Jesse luggage? is there a special luggage for HP2, or it's any set of Jesse boxes? I know Al's products are bomb proof, but they are also heavy(at least the ones that went on R1150GS).

Thanks!

As I told you before I decided to go with the more traditional paint schema.
GO!!!! stickers NICE! I'm currently waiting for Bobby(AtlantaBMW) for the HPN tank. Actually I'm waiting for HPN, Bobby is trying his best, things just moving sloooooooooow. He has one installed now and testing it.

I was thinking about getting a HPN from fender from 1150RR, but that's a lot of mods, and sounds like a winter project.

We'll weigh these before installation and report.

The bags are smaller. I think about 90 litres combined.

I think they are just for the HP2.

the mounting system is called the quick-click, it consists of two NC-machined parts, one that attaches to the bike and the other that can connect to a set of bags, or jerry cans or just about anything you can bolt them to.

the bags shown in the pic above are specific for the HP2. they are definitely smaller than your average jesse bag, but better than nothing.

the half that connects to the bike typically does so through a shaped steel rod with mounting bosses.

the half that connects to the bags features two male pins that mate to the holes in the half that connects to the bike. you place the pins into the holes and twist until the latch snaps into place. the pins are mushroom-shaped and are grasped by the female half much in the way current jesse luggage works.

it sounds complex, but is actually quite simple. the proof will be in the get-off... hard to say how this is going to work without actually trying.

This particular set is smaller but there are three sizes available. Only three more hours...
