Jesse Luggage photos from around the world
Just spent a week with Al Jesse of as he was using my Yamaha XT660Z to make welding jigs, so i was fortunate enough to have the very first set of bags for it.

In conversation Al told me he has been in business now around 20 years and sold about 30,000 bags - so there must be some great shots from around the world, he told me the set with the most mileage has 385,000 on lets see those photos i just got mine i only have stateside shots right now but there is a RTW in their future

Been to Ship Rock too.
Currently on my THIRD set of Jesses. Set on 1150GS had 150,000+ miles of abuse and when bike was sold they still looked like the day I installed them.

Ship Rock near New Mexico and Arizona state lines.

Jesses at Pyramid Rock on the Lewis and Clark Trail (Idyhoe).

An hour after crossing the Bitterroot Motoring Hwy (a route along the Lewis and Clark Trail).

I case you are thinking that this is not Jesse luggage it is, well sort of. This is Al Jesse talking to my then girlfriend Shenda when we met him in a campsite in Austria in 1985 or '86, We were touring Europe on Shenda's Triumph that is in the background and Al was riding from the UK to north Africa on his R80S/T, no it is not a G/S.
This was my first encounter with an overland motorcyclist and it encouraged me to travel, I was surprised to find out later that Al was making luggage for travellers, he had already fitted a piggy back shock to his S/T to beef up the rear suspension along with a few other modifications including the Acerbis petrol tank.

Jesse Work Shop
I bought my bike in San Diego and rode it back to South Texas. On the way back I stopped in PHX and paid a visit to the Jesse Luggage factory. They were very nice and showed me around the shop. I walked away with a set of the dented or scratched bags that they had advertised on the website and they even installed them for FREE!
