    Fit/finish and build quality are 90%+ of the Jesse's. The only slight issue I have is that the powder coat seems a tad fragile comparred to the Jesse bags, and Kirk outsourced that, so not his fault at all.

    The material is exactly the same. Kirk does not grind the welds, but I prefer that because it adds strength. The design is great (though the design is basically mine with some necessary engineering from Kirk to make it work right).

    Overall, a great set of bags at a VERY reasonable price!:clap

    Where did you find those turn signals?? I couldn't find any. I know on a BMW Z4. Those on the fender fit but they arn't LED. and Those look alot better.

    Oh she gets dirty. Here's a pic after riding the ol' Milwaukee electric train railroad tunnels from Idaho to Montana. Just wash in warm water and tumble dry. No bleach.

    But to be honest coming from a very experience motocross background I can't see doing much other than logging road etc on these. There are too many other bikes Id choose to hit trails and get crazy. I absolutely love the GSA simply because its an absolute road killing monster! Heck I just rode her from CA to WA last week during that big storm and we did 2 days of snow. It was epic! I had a 1 hr mtg at a job site and didn't want to fly.
    This was the radar the day I departed WA to come home. 3 days 2200 miles. Up I5 to 97, back down 800 miles of OR and CA coastline. Then I washed her to give a nice post!

    I bought the same BMW EU turn signals in Germany and took them to Canada, worked on my 2010 without any adjustments.

    Aren't the same ones available in North America? Did you also need to purchase the wiring?
