    I was hoping they would be back in the designing business.....love the way the mounds blend into the bike when they are off. That and the fact that my bags have 100k plus on them and still going strong.....

    Agree,have them on my 05 GS,wish they would start making Pilot cases for the LC GS/GSA.
    Would have bought them for my 14 GSA in an instant.

    Well, unfortunately I went a set of vario bags because they made the bike incredibly wide with the mounts.

    I loved the bags. Best quality I've seen and if they start making V-pilots for the WC gs I'll dump the Varios in a second.

    Yeah I was afraid of that......sucks. I really want to get another set, their quality can not be beat. Funny I was talking to the shop boss today about different bags, he even said the best set he has seen was the Micatech's.

    Hope they make a comeback for such great product. The Micatechs V2 make the 750 Nighthawk so much better. I now have more cargo capacity than on the 1150R with BMW cases :)

    I got the deal of the century for my '07 GSA. Now I'm looking for a top case if anyone happens to have one they want to part with

    They look awesome, the thing I loved the most about them was the fact you could take them off and the mounting hardware disappeared. Looks like you have been busy though.

At first I didn’t really like the look of them, but the mounting system is awesome. After an hour and a can of Plastidip they’ve really grown on me. I can fit a ton in them, they haven’t leaked a drop in the rain, and when I take them off, the bike doesn’t look like it’s hauling a jungle gym on the back. It’s really too bad that they went out of business.

    I agree they were the best bags by far.

    Yeah, I'd love to get my hands on some of their cases. The side loading is sweet. I've had their top case for several years, and it's gone from my KLR to my V-Strom, and now on my 1090

    That top case would look nice on my bike. I'll swap you the BMW case for it

    LOL... How's that saying go? Out of my cold dead hand.... But yeah, it would complete your setup for sure. You should try to contact them. They might have some old stock left over. Great people and were great to deal with.

    The best indeed. Side entry is extremely convenient
    Sadly somewhere somehow one of the "bullet" mounts for the Pilots came off the bike...
    Hope I can find one....

    Man, I hadn't realized these were no longer available. I've had a full set taking up space in my garage for years, and just found a buyer. Starting to wonder if I should just hang on to them!

    But...the reason I was investigating is that I don't have the keys for them and was trying to find them to buy a set. Since they are no longer in business, I wonder if that's going to be impossible. Any suggestions? Would like the buyer to have them.

    Try contacting them at their old phone number. If they still have the number they might have some small bits.
