    Much to the displeasure of my wife I did fire the bike up.
    Incredibly loud and I felt like a REAL man! :lol3

    Just took it for a ride and it was nice. Sound is deep an throaty. Won't be able to tell performance until I put a couple hundred miles on it.

    Keeping this thing rubber side down in the snow is an excersize in self control!

    Getting sooooo close on finishing my 1550 side cases. I just have to build the mounts, and they'll be done.

    i've used this stuff for many different things in the past. makes a great license plate backing for your dirtbike. just need a dremel with a good cutting wheel and your in business. that was the plan for this but once i had it in hand and "mocked" it up on the bike and played with the position, i didn't have to do anything but drill 3 holes. not really "sexy" or "super cool" but it's hauling bags, who the hell is gonna look at it? plus i had it off the bike in under 2 minutes.

    what is it you ask?

    a cheap, white, plastic cutting board. strong, light, water resistant, and heat resistant (to a point). like i said, Keep It Simple Stupid.

    great thing is, it also doubles as a cutting board. :rofl

    told ya i was a little crazy.

    laters,

    Great minds think alike! My top case is mounted on a black cutting board bought at Target. I had to use two nylon spacers to get the case leveled up:

    Those are "KTM" branded Gualdi cans, and that is the only way you can mount them. Odd, I know. KTM sold these back in '04 and '05. The PO of my bike was a KTM rep and put these on the bike before I bought it. They're really pretty good overall -- not too quiet, not too loud.

    This I REALLY LIKE... thin, clever, look light, look strong... like the rep. of Pelicans too. Can't wait to see the mount.

    If you try to mount them the other way, the mounts don't line up and the little KTM decal thing would be facing directly down. My guess is that I have early production cans and that Gualdi rotated them in later production runs.
