Some where between the summit on HWY 17 just east of Santa Cruz and downtown Mountain View, California via HWY 85 my left saddle bag/case/pannier vaporized. Got to lunch and it was missing. Never heard or felt anything.

If you spot it or its remains please let me know. Metallic Green from a BMW 2004 K1200GT. BMWMOA sticker, Rounders sticker, reflective tape around it as well. Had all my tools, red first aid kit, yellow flashlight, digital tire gauge and so on so maybe it was just too heavy and finally broke the latch, no idea.
