    Mine have so far for about 5000 miles and I am in and out of my tourpac alot. You're right. They do dress up the pizza box. I gave my old hinges to some guy for his bags on his police bike. They're the same hinges.

    Are they really a piece of cake to install? I have been putting off installing the ones that I have gotten for Christmas. I want to do it because you're right, they do dress up the Pak. I just don't want to botch the job. I DID replace the cheap latches finally after dealing with them :D around for way to long! THAT was a piece of cake for me. :s

    You'll like them. Mine have been on for over a year with no problems. Still look new.

    One of the first things I bought after getting my bike. I just don't understand why they don't come stock as the match the latches.

    I got a set while on a trip into the U.S. for 50.00 bucks ( 75.00 in Canada ) put them on by following instructions with no trouble at all. I really like the look but agree this is something that should be on the bike from the factory. Even the CVO's come with the cheap hinges.

    I've got them too! They really do dress up alot, and they are not hard to put on. Been on my bike going on 2 years without an issue. The only other thing that was easier to put on was the push button gas door, which in my book is a "Must have" item.
