Now THAT is a half decent looking set of Micatechs!

The two-tone makes them look smaller.

Great color! Love those custom paint jobs on 12GS's!

Wow Ron, You have a whole bunch of FANTASTIC photos in your link to your photo album.. You should post a ride report with all those pics you have there!

MisterCindy: Those are Micatech cases: www.micatech.net I pack the same way Ron does, with my pillion platform loaded and sitting on top of the cases. The side opening allows me to access my gear and the deep lip below the door hinge anchors your gear, so nothing falls out when you open the door.

We spent ah couple of days with Revcoman on this trip. He has a GREAT ride report, North by Northwest! This picture is of the three of us at the Cassiar /Alaskan Hwy Junction. I'm on the left Revcoman is center & my riding partner is on the right.

The Micatech bags are GREAT, they even crash well. I lowsided at about 40 mph & only tore a slight hole in the left bag. No other damage, other than a little tweaking on the bags where they meet the mounting bullets. I was able to hammer them back into decent shape.

Thanks
The lights are Saeng Nightcutters, the mounts come with the lights and are their 1 inch cast clamp variety; They actually have quite a few different types of mounts that you have a choice of when you order the lights...I like the saengs cause they are well made and water tight and can be adjusted without tools...they also give if they happen to be struck by brush or other such hazzards...I've used them on several different bikes and I think they're a very good set up for the money...they also sell a very good harness and switch for the system. Check them out a www.saeng.com.
