    I'm glad to have set such an excellent example. Looks like your bags are about as durable as those POS Gobis I had.

    Did you injure yourself badly?

    no long term injuries.....just metal, seals, plastic, glass, actually I was probably close to 30 mph rounding the rock when kaboom.....I don't think any bag would have held up under those conditions....the upside is that each bag goes for only $49 a piece...a wee bit less then anything else out there I think....disposable for sure....

    We're haulin' the bikes to Naches for a pre-ride evaluation. We want to make sure the BMW's will survive.[​IMG]
