All set for Alaska, pictures of my battle ready DL650
Okay, maybe not battle ready but it should make it to the Arctic Circle and back. Top box is a fiberglass military surplus case (totally waterproof) Panniers are military surplus aluminum mermite cans. I'm real happy with the SW Motech side racks, center stand, and crash guards. Also installed ROX risers, OEM heated grips, hand guards, Givi shield, gel seat with Aerostich sheepskin (not shown), and new Dunlop D607's. The little foot pads on the crash guards work good for me to rest my legs on. I painted the mermite cans satin black and made some bungee tie downs which are screwed to the lids. Tool storage tube is made from ABS pipe I rounded up at a RV shop.
I don't have it completely packed yet still have a couple small items to strap to the pannier lids, and a spare rear tire I'm going to mount on the top box. Leaving next Saturday the 2nd. It'll be me, two guys on GL1800's and a guy on a 650 BMW.
