    Do you have any future plans to become an LLC and start designing mounts again? I have a Buell that could use some bags but nobody makes mounts for it. I guess maybe I could buy some mounts for a Ulysses and modify them a bit. . .

    c'mon, Antonio. Is that the best you could do? Jeff wrote a literary masterpiece when he spotted your bike. :D

    Thanks, Kelsow! All the design credit goes to Jeff. He's a pretty sharp feller.


    Beautiful photo once again! :clap

    Wait until you see what they're going on. I like it when people step outside of the norm.

    I think they look sweet on a cruiser. I've always liked VTXes. After seeing one up close, I can see myself owning one of these in the future. Nice scoot. :D

    Hey Kirk, did you ever end up making a set of paniers for a Honda XR650L? I saw a pic of one in post #143 but the bike only had a top case. If you have will you please post pics? Keep up the good work, your luggage looks AMAZING! :freaky

    Thanks, Jim!


    I think they get a little better with every single job. I've really been enjoying honing my skills.

    Just like when Michael Jordan would say "it's the shoes!" in those old Nike commercials, I can say "it's the Dynasty!" :D


    That TIG makes me look good.

    Here's an early set of Kirks, performing perfectly on a 3800 mi trip up to Nova Scotia and back! They had plenty of room for my gear, both inside and on top, and the insides stayed perfectly dry, too.


    I added Scotchlite to the sides and back to increase visibility:

    As you can see, Kirk built the rack with plenty of room for tie-downs. BTW, do you see the GoPro mounts?

    What more can I say? They're 99.9% perfect!

    (Now, let's talk about that bottle opener, Kirk... :freaky )
