MAN! That guy definitely fouled up his approach!

If he'd been running just a bit slower he could have swung out a bit before passing between the pylons and made with room to spare.

Or, was the DL rider just demonstrating the "quick detach" feature?

That is too funny. I cut between a couple of gas pumps and clipped my multistrada case on my buddies exhaust pipe. He started laughing thinking I was screwing around while he was filling up. I was thinking if I had two matching 3" stickers so the bags would still match. Duc paint sure is soft and shallow.

When I ran my brand spanking new Givi bags along the corner of this lady's bumper at my son's elementary school, it left this big long white streak. I was crushed, $700 of new bags trashed almost the day I put them on. But, that rubbery stuff Givi puts on the side of the bags is amazing! Some Mother's plastic treatment and a little elbow grease; it's like nuttin never happened, yeah, nuttin...wasn't even there that day...

I went straight though to the plastic, white plastic, btw. The bags were a backorder nightmare and there was no chance at even a replacement lid. Hey look, CRG stickers from my bar-end mirrors. I told the guy that bought the bike and he was just happy to get luggage for the thing in the first place.

Default Custom Paint!

Speaking of Givi saddlebags, I customized them to integrate with the rest of the bike. If you've never worked with Color-rite.com, I suggest you try them the next time you need to paint your bike or an accessory. Very helpful people, great products, and a perfect color match to the original paint. Here's a photo of my bags with their newly painted panels:

Great. Now all you need is a color matched helmet and jacket and pants and a girlfriend with color matched gear and then you can find a group of Wingers to ride with. I think they are all color matched too.

That's why I painted polka dots on the bike and bought plaid riding gear.

I have a helmet that resembles the paint on my bike. seruzawa apparently believes it's a bad thing to take pride in your paint scheme. My jacket matches my company logo (which is hand painted on my bike), too. Does that make me lame? I think not. I just liked the look and figured others may like it, too.

seruzawa, if you ride a bike with black in it and you own a helmet with black on it would your previous statement apply? If so, I know some Angles that may have an issue with that statement.
