I know Diablo. I'm sorry! I just hate the shape of the corners. Also, the texture of the powder-coating they use looks horrible! I'm sure they are great bags functionally, but the looks just kill me. Bleh! They kind of ruin the look of the bike. The Happy Trails or Touratechs look way better.

Hmmmmmm. So the Jesses make my bike ugly? Dang, and I was so going for America's Next Top Bike...should I be embarrassed now? Will anyone speak to me in public? Should I buy an F150 with appropriate logos, or do I actually need to own a specific make of bike to drive that support vehicle?

You know, my helmet doesn't even match my bike. I feel so inadequate....



Wait a minute...I think....I really like the Jesses' construction, 37 in width, cargo capacity, adjustable CoG, fit and finish, mounting system....never mind....I don't require any external validation of my ride... I'm G2G.

Time to twist some throttle! Each to his own....

Cheers to that. Without looking at their looks it's hard to argue that they aren't the best set of cases on the market. High capacity with the thinnest profile of virtually ALL cases regardless of capacity. Very well made. Adjustable center of gravity. And considerably cheaper than BMW or MetalMule panniers and about equal to TT. Plus pick your color, silver, charcoal, or black.

Now about the rounded edges, I can't say as I haven't crash tested multiple types of panniers to check on their ability to withstand crashes, but in the Adventure Motorcycle Handbook they make the point that slightly rounded edges will fair better in a spill as there is no sharp edge scraping along the ground or getting caught while sliding in the event of a downing...

Now looking at the looks, which is completely subjective, me thinks besides the BMW they are about the best looking case available in charcoal or black.
(PS, I just now realized how drunk I was that night a couple weeks ago when posting... )

Yea. I'd also like to see how that works. I've not seen any photos on the web anywhere.

I've got the rear plate and an unmounted top box. I'm trying to decide if I should just bolt it on or get the quick release to put between.

Thanks in advance...
