Frostbit, a fellow inmate made them. He used to be a graphic artist, and has tons of talent. If you PM him, i'd sure he could hook you up with some. And they are reflective to boot. If you noticed, I added the Jesse top plate as well, and on trips when I need more stuff, I'll toss my dry bag across it. Problem solved without the extra width. I tend to ride as much off road as on, and the slim design is narrower than my handlebars. Gotta love that.

Lots of space and they don't stick out too far. What a great idea.

They'll probably look something like this.

Not sure, but I'll look in to it. I do have two things going for me.

A larger surface for rear end collisions
and Buoyancy.

Hard to argue with buoyancy - I semi-floated my KLR across a deeper-than-anticipated river once, thanks to the big tank.

Great Thread!

But I like my GIVI 41L painers. I've used them on numerous bikes on long distance travel and no leaks, light weight, and the little keyless access door is the balls when you want to get to your rain gear, gloves, maps etc and you have lots of luggage tied on top. Plus you can have multiple painers on the same racks. I have a set of 21L for commuting.









I often wonder why someone doesn't come out with a set of mounts for the aluminum cans that hinge on the bottom and tilt out from the top so with lots of gear starpped on the rear rack, you could tilt out the painers to open the top..........
