Gsx-s1000F with Hepco Becker Hard Sidecases

Just got them and thought they look pretty nice for non-oem fit. They are the Hepco Becker Orbit cases.

I think those look great on the bike. Clean, functional, rounded design and black.
Pictures with bags off to see the mounting hardware?

Can you fit a helmet in the bags? They look great!

Not at all, they are quite small at about 22L each.

Have to agree that they look original and not out of place. Nice

I really like your Hepco and Becker bags and mounts. Can you post a picture from the rear of the bike? My only concern is whether or not the bags extend past the turn signals. In other words, if you are in traffic and you signal to change lanes, will drivers off to the side (not directly behind the bike) be able to see the turn signal?

Ooh, that looks like the same mount as the soft bags I have from them. Hope so, cause I really don't like soft bags, but that's all I could really find at the time.

Real nice and clean (much cleaner than mine).

Your bike looks real nice, specially long distance touring.

Question: How far (in inch if possible) do they measure from edge to edge, and are they in line with tip of mirrors or further out/or in?

Also, that is a huge wind screen. Does it affect high speeds handling at all with side wind gusts? (just curious)

Thanks.

They are right at the edge of the rear of the bags, so just depends on the angle.
