New super cheap luggage....ready for a trip. if it'd stop snowing
Well, I scored some saddle bags from NPS for $35. That was unexpected. They're some cheapies (on ebay for ~$75), but good enough till I can get some good boxes. They came with Rain covers and a bunch of straps, I haven't figured out yet. The backpack came from Wally World. It's water resistant. (works like a drybag), its big, and fits on the sissy bar. $35, as well. So, for $70, I've got enough luggage to get me out on the road. I had to lose the stock turn signals. I made a mounting bracket out of a piece of flat bar and bolted it to the license bracket. I already had those LED bullet lights lying around. A little soldering and shrink wrapping and I was good to go. Sometime down the road, I'll take the time to re-route the wires with the brake light cable, under the fender.
