Nice work!

Wish I'd seen this before I picked up a set of used Touratech Zegas... Maybe I'll get in touch when I inevitably wreck those.

I went by to drop off some parts tonight and they really look good. I figure that they will increase volume at least 40 percent over the BMW System Paniers that I have.

His work is good; welds are clean; every thing lines up and he obviously spent a lot of time making sure that the boxes were positioned so my pillion had enough space. And the rack, is bulletproof (figure that coming from a gunsmith!).

Wow, that is the prettiest box and pan brake I have ever seen.



But in all seriousness, you are making some sweet panniers. Very clean.

Very nice... If you get a chance to do a Super Tenere, I would be interested in a set as well, with the panniers tucked in as tightly as possible aka F800Rob's.

Great work Kirk!

As your beta tester I found your work very thoughtful and clean. From subsequent work I have seen, it is getting better all the time!



Added shiney stuff.

Jim

PS Great work on Jason and Mike's bikes!

Interesting... great product.

Post some of the top box $ options-photos and sizes when you get a chance. Prefer something without the angles on the lid.... I think.

Also the lead time you will you need to crank one out...

Thanks!

Current lead time on raw aluminum will ship next week. Add 20 days for powder to be safe.

I can make whatever top box shape or size that you want. I really don't have any pics yet. Post #1 pricing is pretty close on any size you want.

Hey Kirk,

Great looking stuff. Looking for tool boxes for an 800GS and a 1200GS. Similar to the ones you made for Jeff's DR650 tool box, and it looks like you made one for J's 2005GS, hard to tell. Would be looking for them to be made in raw aluminum. Can you let me know if it is possible and, if so, what would be the price and delivery time, and if you need more info. I already have panniers and would be mounting the tool boxes in the wide space between the panniers and rear wheel.

OK let me know and thanks,

Danny
