    Welcome to the forum. My first reaction looking at the rear of your bike is that you should wangle a sponsorship deal for Lucha Libre. And I really like the way you removed your lower side panels and replaced them with a fitted piece. I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. Well done. And the foam pieces to avoid garage rash are a great idea.

    Nice work!

    Can I ask where you purchased the high-vis reflective strips that are on the rear side of your cases? I'd like to get some like that...

    Hey Guys,

    Here's the links for the reflective tape. It's not the most stylish look but I'm just trying to not become the next "Soccer Mom BMW Hood Ornament". I also put some on the bottom of the bags in case the bike is on its side in the middle of the road.

    Good company. We have used his kits on several of our bikes.

    The lower panels keep the rain off but since I'm in Arizona where rain is more scarce than a three legged leprechaun they'er not needed in the summer. The Lexon covers I made let the air come though to my vented boots and only took about an hour to make with just hand tools (Hacksaw, file, sandpaper, drill and flat black spray paint).

    I couldn't resist. It was the first time in my life that I got to use "Lucha Libre" in a sentence.
