Finished up the Colors in the Catskills:





This is after riding the GS Challenge route on a tour the following morning after steady rain all night up Hunter Mountain Ski Area. I made it up more than any of the other big bikes on one of our "detours". (lost a blinker trying to come back down...)

What size is your pelican top case? Where did you buy it? Looks nicely proportioned.

It looks like a Seahorse SE540FP4 to me. I had a couple Seahorse cases for side bags on my SV and liked them.

All loaded up for 4 days on the road to Potosi Missouri for the Falling Leaf BMW rally.

I had no use for the extra fuel but was just too lazy to remove the mount before leaving. My set up was so minimal that the saddle bags were thrown on at the last second and only contain some trail mix and a single change of clothes. It worked well. Eventually I'd like to be able to camp comfortably for a month using just my Pelican.

The bike now has 15,000 trouble free miles.
