Great pics, I've loving those bags. Just wondering how easy it would be to remove a bag or adjust its position if you have gear in it. Can you turn that little handle while fighting some gear, or do you have to unload a ways?

Damn that looks good Huck! Almost makes me think I should've just gotten charcoal instead of specially requesting black ones. Hopefully black looks as good once I get them on my 650 as the charcoals do on everyone else's.
(Did you get that BMW bash guard powdercoated or just spray painted it black yourself? I have one on order and it's not going to stay aluminum colored for long...)

Question Jesse Plate or only GIVI topbox mount


Thanks for the Photos. I have the same color F650GS

I also have a Givi topbox. Do you need the plate shown in frame #57 to secure the bag mounts, because it appears that you only have the Givi topbox mount and not the Jesse rear plate. Can you show how you mounted the Jesse frame for the bags with your Givi topbox mount.

Thanks

I just painted the skid plate with rattle can flat black thou right behind the tire the spray from it has taken the paint off pretty quickly, i orignally thought it would be easier to touch up with spray? As for the givi box that mounted on the givi plate just as it would have without the jesse's ---the 2 rear spacers are just replaced by the jesse rack--was a pretty easy install and i believe these are the top of the line for quality, strength, and size ---big cap. and narow width. i really like them

I think that pulling out some gear to get clear access to a full rotation on the handle would make the process hassle free. I usually pack in a series of small stuff sacks so pulling one out of the way to remove a side bag would be no big deal.

It's a tinted MetalMule shield... tell the truth I haven't used it yet, it's not yet riding conditions in Minnesota but this week the weathermen say it will be pretty warm, so I may get to test it. It's really kind of skinny (see pic) and doesn't have a brace, but the blokes on UKGSer that have them seem to be very well pleased.

I got the large top case - 45 liter.
Haven't mounted yet because I need to take the back end apart and hook up my P3 lights. http://www.p3lights.com/
I'll try to get some photos tomorrow.

Yes. It arrived about a week ago.

I haven't mounted it yet, though. It came with no pre-drilled holes, no drilling template, nor any mounting hardware. I'm still working out how I want to do the job.

Just ordered mine today after looking at Frostbits this weekend. Good thing, Rick said the price was going up tomorrow!
Good thing I didn't wait another day! Now I can't wait for mine to get here.

I heard that yours are going to be extra special... Oh well... I guess that I can live with "charcoal". I did personalize mine tonight.

Very COOL! Looks like those old graphic artist skills are alive and well.
Love the GS matching script. We need to come up with a logo for our new riding group
