Looks nice, but your rear turn signal is not very visible from your 4 or 8 o'clock position..

This is true, and something I've talked about with another member on a local forum. The connectors for the turn signals are in the tail and are accessible when the seat is off. I'm considering soldering on a pair of extra connectors to the turn signal wires there, and bolting a couple turn signals to the rack. That way, when the rack is mounted I could unplug the stock signals and plug in the rack-mounted signals. If I could find identical connectors I wouldn't need to solder on additional connectors, but wouldn't know where to look...

Nice work.
Pelicans are one of the best, waterproof and all.

Got the Storm case mounted today using a similar system. Just gotta clean it up and paint it, but it's raining outside now.

Stencil some Haz-mat warnings on there and the cagers will leave you alone.

Other than being blocky, they look great. And remember how your had your Kat loaded up at the rally I think you'll need every inch of space they provide. Nice work .

not much in Deadhorse, unless you are going there to work.
Are you taking your bike down the Dalton HWY?

Wow that top case is massive! Can you still see around it in your mirrors?

I just want to go to the Arctic Circle.

Yeah, I'll be taking the Dalton Highway and packing some tire patch kits.

I haven't had the chance to take it out yet, but the case is narrower than the mirrors. I think it will be a little more difficult to see what's directly behind me, but that's all.
