The frame protectors are self made. The number plate holder made from aluminium is self made too. I made a series of these for the German HP2 guys...
You find more photos in the German forum under "ziros Heckumbau"

Nice work. I like them better than the Touratech ones.

HP2 Jesse Bags

I'll process photos and post them tonight but here's the weight specs.
Each Safari bag weighs twelve pounds and the stainless steel brackets were ten, for a total of thirty-four pounds.

They are Pirelli MT60R Corsa front 120/70-17 and rear 160/70-17.
I think they were origionally for the KTM Duke when it first came out. The 160 fits fine on the stock motard real wheel with no problems on the bike. Great fun tires, they stick like crazy and are great in the rain too...just don't expect to get too many miles on them!

Another great set could be something like the Avon extreme DOT rains. I've heard they are even better in the wet.

Speaking of, has anyone figured out what the speedo error is with the street wheels on? I haven't bothered to figure out the percentage that the speedo reads higher with the smaller profile tires, but I'm guessing 5-10 mph off at highway speeds...

Even if you have never owned a set of Jesse's, you've surely seen them on other bikes and over the seasons, watched them evolve. During the last ten years, Al has been continuously refining his product with little upgrades in materials and mechanical devices like locks and mounting hardware.

BUT, this time, Al Jesse has made a giant leap in technology, esthetics and pure innovation. Pictures don't do this product justice, you need to handle the machined aluminum mounts and stainless frames to appreciate their strength, and all things considered, negligible weight.

As promised, the bags click on and off with the pull of a pin and the new super-strong latches are as easy to use as those on the finest of suitcases. As a rider accustomed to hauling heavy loads over rough terrain, durability and support are critical. When wiggling the boxes individually by hand, the fit was tight and heavily braced. And judge for yourself how we finally get the style that our fine machines deserve. (The bags in these photos are the smallest of three available sizes.)

The easily mounted hardware. (A 1.5 hour job.)




The boxes weigh 12 pounds each and the mounting kit is another ten.








Among other goodies, Al also designed a steel tube, wrap-around dash-protection bar that accommodates a Wunderlich windscreen.





Finally, style to match the machine.

Viking!
Thanks for the review!

So,
1. What are the available sizes?
2. What is installed now on your bike?
3. What do you think about not having a rear brase between boxes like TT or Micateks?
4. it's hard to see from the picture, but are the closed lids higher then the seat?
5. Are they going to be available soon for sale, or these are still prototypes?
6. Do you know the price?


Thanks!
