    Hello Scooter_Maniac, Thanks for the link to Texas. I sent an inquiry. It will be some time before I could give a for sure. If the spot is taken before then, I hope everyone has a great trip. If I can get the boxes I want and the extra lights, I'm looking at another ride to Florida. Again, thank you for the link.

    That plate is the one that came with the top case. I've something like 30K miles using it with no problem. Some folks have had issues with the supplied mounting plate for the Bestem 2012 cracking over time. Anyway, if you have a rack on the back of your bike, there is hardware to mount the plate to that. Otherwise, the top rear plastic comes off the bike and holes drilled through where indicated on the underside. Holes in the plate didn't match up with them so, I had to drill a couple of extra holes in the plate. I think the new ones may have properly placed holes but, not sure.

    By the way, whose mounting plate is that in your photos? I can almost read the embossed name. APLO 992?

    Thank you for taking the time. We have an old hardware store in Biloxi (Ellzey's Hardware) and they have a good selection of specialty items that can be bought individually. I might be able to put something together. Thanks again for your efforts.

    Your PM didn't show up. That's okay. I'll wait until I have the 15 posts under my belt. I like the spring contacts in your photo. Slick!

    I use GIVI E21 hard cases...have them on all the time. It takes as fast as you can insert the key, turn it 1/8 turn, press an adjacent button and lift off the case to get to the fuel door. About five seconds although, you may fumble around a bit the first few times. Same to replace the side case. No reason to cause one not to get them. Give a shout if you're ever in the Grand Junction area.

    Scooter_maniac,
    Scooter trash GDI in Pueblo. I'm interested in hard side cases. How does this affect fueling?
    Just ordered the OPT7 headlights. Have an 08 650, not exe. May be riding to Vegas next week.
