Nice meeting you and your wife as well! Motorcycle people are the best people you can ever hope to meet.

Fab continues...



















ADV bikes 'R' Us.



It was such a pretty day that I did a little garage sweeping / rearranging.

It gave me a good excuse to play with everyone's motorcycle!



Who doesn't love looking at motorcycles? I mean, really?



It was a good day. I got some work done, met some new people, and got to play with motorcycles! Life is good!

F800GS racks fully welded and tabs dressed up with a 60 grit flapwheel.



Everything reassembled to check for warpage.



I really like how those top tabs turned out.

So many motorcycles - so little time!

Let me know when you have time. If I can coordinate with Jim, could leave it there for a bit!

Don't know if you were asking me or Kirkster, but I will go ahead and answer

Going for the raw aluminum look, with flat tops with the footman loops. Similar to the bags below, but with the exhaust side cutout and a bevel on only the bottom outside edge.

Good grief, they look voluminous as hell...maybe an optical illusion arising from the black color...

Looks good, I cringe every time I see critical mounting points like that made by just hammering the tube flat.

Cheers
