Mermite cans mounted! With Pix!

I've been busy over the past few weeks...

* Flush mount turn signals
* Pelican 1550 top case
* Mermite cans on SW Motech quick release racks
* Givi engine guards
* Dan Vesel skid plate
* Stealth exhaust cover (painted flat black for when Mermites are removed)
* Grand Touring USA grips
* Pig Pen bumper sticker

Cee Bailey screen and hand guards are on their way! Pic can be seen here:

Like what you have done so far. But those cases are just begging for reflective tape in my opinion or even reflective pin stripes. Either way I like the cases, very functional and rugged looking. Farkle on.

I'm not sure about the reflective tape stuff for those cases. Most of my riding is done during the daylight hours.

Maybe more dirt biking stickers. They are prime real estate for advertising! They add a huge amount of carrying capacity to the bike and are rock solid up to and beyond highway speeds.

SW Motech racks are awesome. They're solid as a rock and easy to install/remove.
