The mini war has been won. Installed the new Blaster X tail light, then dealt with getting the untried panniers on and functioning. Tell you, Kawa's are boss, so nicely thought out, one key system, locks to the hand rail, goes on and off in a snap, what's not to like? Here's a couple of pics and I was in fear I'd think they looked super bulky and take away the bike's elegance, but happy to say I think they look excellent. Also of important note people, I already did some high speed riding, and I am not sure I was able to even notice their presence even at some 150kph long sweepers, another feather in their caps.
