“I’ve put about 8,000 miles on the bike with the Micatech side cases. I’ve ridden all over northern California in all types of weather, traffic, and road conditions (including some off-road). The cases have been great! They are very functional, the mounting system is quite stout, and the installation directions are top notch.
Before buying, I’d had a concern about being able to split traffic with the cases. Without the cases my handlebars and mirrors were what worried me, with the cases, it is still just the handlebars and mirrors that worry me when lane splitting.”

“I have to tell you, I make my living as a technical writer, and have spent many years writing manufacturing processes for the aerospace industry. I was very impressed with the level of detail and the clarity in your instructions. You take your customers through a step by step process in a very clear and orderly manner, with pictures to boot! Great job.
Everyone who sees them is very impressed, with the workmanship, the quality, the machine work, and the size. I’ve put about 500 miles on them in the last week, and the amount they hold is impressive indeed. I also got caught in a driving Florida summer storm yesterday, 3” of rain in one hour. I had a few thousand dollars worth of camera equipment in the right bag. I had to say I was concerned. I rode through some deep puddles, and next to cars doing the same. Water was hitting the cases from up top, from below, form every angle imaginable, and after the shower, when I opened the bags, not a single drop of water got inside. It seems I worried for naught. I don’t know that I would immerse them and expect that, but if they can stand a tropical rain storm, they’ll stand up to just about everything I can throw at them. || Read more
“I’d like to say thank you for marketing such a great case. I’ve had my pilot cases for almost a year and a half now and they look and act just like they did the day I installed them. I’ve taken all over Texas, made several out of state trips to Colorado and Nebraska. The cases have provided me with plenty of storage space and are very durable, even on the dirt trails of the Ozarks. I’ve included some photos. My father and I took a trip to Lincoln, Nebraska and also a photo of a stop I made on the way to Colorado. Thanks Again.”

“Went to Alaska and Canada in June with my Micatechs. I rode the Dalton Highway, Denali Highway and the Dempster Highway. After living with them every day for a month, I’ve got to tell you that I love them even more now. What a product! They held up great, even after 3 drops. One of the cases has a ding on the bottom and the bracket on that side was slightly bent…but that’s it. No big deal. I don’t think anyone but me would even notice. These things are bullet proof. Got lots of looks from other riders, too. One guy from San Diego said he was gonna order a set as soon as he got home. I returned a set of cases from Brand X to get the Micatechs. Best decision I ever made.” || Read more
“I rode over 23,000 miles in 6 months through 15 countries as I rode from New Hampshire to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, Argentina. My Micatech V2 panniers and Micatech Top Box held strong the whole trip. Installation was a breeze and they added function and style to my Kawasaki KLR650. I dropped the bike 30+ times and got in 2 car accidents. The boxes never dented and they always remained waterproof. They had plenty of room for all my gear and the side loading made it easy to find what I needed. With matching locks, security was simple and never a concern. Quick disconnects make it simple to remove the boxes to fit through narrow doorways or bring them into hotel rooms. The powdercoat finish is durable and an excellent surface for stickers. Plus… they have built in beer holders – a must for any trip!” || Read more
“This summer I had the pleasure of traveling from Toronto to Alaska for a 4 week adventure, camping and riding for a 62 year old means you want your gear to be clean, dry and serviceable at the end of a long day in the saddle.
The Dempster, Denali, Dalton Highways were all on the schedule for this trip and research helped me to understand the road and weather conditions I would encounter. In fact I had it all; dust filled days, rain and even snow; gravel, dirt, mud, and asphalt.
My Micatech cases never let me down even after two low speed tip overs where the cases took much of the impact with the ground they continued to keep everything dry and dust free. || Read more
