    As I told you before I decided to go with the more traditional paint schema.
    GO!!!! stickers :evil NICE! I'm currently waiting for Bobby(AtlantaBMW) for the HPN tank. Actually I'm waiting for HPN, Bobby is trying his best, things just moving sloooooooooow. He has one installed now and testing it.

    I was thinking about getting a HPN from fender from 1150RR, but that's a lot of mods, and sounds like a winter project.

    The bags are smaller. I think about 90 litres combined.

    I think they are just for the HP2.

    the mounting system is called the quick-click, it consists of two NC-machined parts, one that attaches to the bike and the other that can connect to a set of bags, or jerry cans or just about anything you can bolt them to.

    the bags shown in the pic above are specific for the HP2. they are definitely smaller than your average jesse bag, but better than nothing.

    the half that connects to the bike typically does so through a shaped steel rod with mounting bosses.

    the half that connects to the bags features two male pins that mate to the holes in the half that connects to the bike. you place the pins into the holes and twist until the latch snaps into place. the pins are mushroom-shaped and are grasped by the female half much in the way current jesse luggage works.

    it sounds complex, but is actually quite simple. the proof will be in the get-off... hard to say how this is going to work without actually trying.

    I'll write a report with photos asap. Al just called and said that they just now finished most of my brackets and they are being overnighted so we'll have them tomorrow morning. He also shipped the windshield kit. Film at eleven. 3.5 hours to go.:1drink

    I made it.

    Home depot, Plastiglass, dremel, hitgun, black spray can. works great.

    i made a mounting of aluminium and it also holds my GPS(Garmin2610). the idea is not mine, i stole it from BMW:evil . but i had to modify it to fit my needs.

    let me know if you have more question!

    Nice work! I just got the Wunderlich fly screen and then saw yours. I am thinking of using their mounting gear and fabricating somthing a little more substantial. I have an old stock R1100RS screen I am thinking about modifying.

    just play with something before you cut it, you have to adjust it to your height for high speed riding.

    the quick click is only the locking system, i hope it's going to be attached to the bike in more points.... well it has to be, since from the picture from Jesse's webside the Quick Click is attached to(only???) angle pipe of the sub-frame.

    waiting for Viking report:deal .....
