BTW nice color scheme

I'm guessing "Too long and too much, but entirely worth it"

Sides only took about 20 minutes to install, about the same for the top rack.
E41 cases - 483
Rack - 154
V46 Top - 245
Rack - 82
Shipping - Don't remember. I ordered these through my dealer, but they matched the prices I found online. I put the top case on this morning, haven't taken any pictures yet, though. I had to ride.
And yes, the color is cool.

Virtually identical prices as what I posted. Since my dealer, Fun Bike Center, seems to be willing to match the internet prices, I order through them. I prefer to give my money to local businesses where possible. That, and they really make it easy come back in. I think FBC must have written the book on customer service.

I agree 100 percent, but have found most of the local shops to be a waste of time. Most don't even have a clue about workig on a V. The guys at Sport Tour started as a local shop, and still act that way. I have been in their shop a few times.

Yes I agree but you need to get some protection.
All your junk is hanging out the front of that bike.

Thank you all for giving me the inspiration to achieve my goal!
