    All is good here. Haven't been around much the last couple weeks and wish I could say I've been on the bike!

    Ironhorse 332, just sent you an email on your questions.

    Just spoke with corrado yesterday afternoon about having some Hepco Becker crash bar bags made for the 2012GS for the trip in a few weeks to Ak. He's very accommodating and even as busy as he is getting ready to head out for a rally, he's going to have my bags made and delivered to me by July 5th. I wasn't willing to pay the extra freight from Hepco Becker oversees to have them here in time to leave.

    His pricing is VERY reasonable and I plan on writing an aar on their quality and how they hold up on the trip north over a 4 week trip when I get back. Really appreciate his assist in getting these to me before I go.

    aar on Corrado crash bar bags now I'm back from Ak. trip.

    Hit lots of heavy rain, days on end in BC going up. Took 3rd day before they soaked through, and even then, not very wet but more damp. I didn't have anything that couldn't get wet without damage in them, so it was a non issue. First two days checking them, everything was dry inside. They came in handy for holding sunglasses, air pressure guage, microfibers, cigs/lighter.

    One note, if they aren't stuffed full up front, the pointy end sorta folds back due to high speeds. The other point I would note is that they constantly slid back on the bars. A velcro strap at the front of the bar would have prevented this. It was easy enough to push them forward even while riding, but the front strap would have been a better designed bag.

    Zippers worked just fine, no binding and large enough pull tab to open and close them with gloves on.

    Update, I rearranged the front velcro strap and it's now around the down bar so the bags no longer slip forward like they did through the trip to Ak. Not the bag design, just my not setting the straps properly. Duh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bags are great, I like the reflective areas that headlights can see knowing there's something there moving from a distance [ they are wide, not thin strips ].

    @corrado113 I loved my bags, thank you sir!

    The 3 part bag system I had you make for the left pannier worked out just like I hoped. the split bag for the right was also a good choice. the crash bar bags for my GSA were fantastic.

    I did spray some waterproofing stuff on them and my old tank bag cause I knew it was going to rain on my trip up to AK and back. it was a good choice, we got a few days of solid rain, and off and on rain, and my tools any my compressor never saw a drop.

    All I can say is your MAGIC with a needle!!!

    thanks again.

    Hi Brady,
    I sent you a couple emails via your .net website asking about making me two medical emergency pouches. Please take a look.
    Reposting here just in case you did not get them. I also PM'd you.
    You made this one for me several years ago.

    Pls find the two attachments. Dimensions are listed.

    Red material. White embroidery- Emergency Medical Information- with EMS logo as show in pic.

    Velcro is 3/4 in width using hook side

    I’d like two of these made. Pls give price and payment method.

    Thanks. John
