The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

well, thanks for all the concern about my safety due to the installation of the new box. i feel obliged to reassure you of the following:

if you look carefully at the pictures below you will see that the box is designed with safety in mind. the bottom has full bracing and support in case of a side crash/fall, which would keep the back of the motorcycle higher off the ground, thus providing more space for my potentially trapped limbs. as for a head on crash, well, the box is attached to the motorcycle and i am not, so i'd be flying and the box couldn't possible catch up with me. as for the rear collision, please notice that the top section of the box has no lateral bracing, thuse creating a crumple zone that should take some of the force of the rear impact. once again, thanks for your concern.

as for those interested in the environmental impact, the box acts as both a rear spoiler and an effective slipstream creater, thus giving me a great glide co-efficient and saving gas.

as for those interested in the cargo carrying ability, it fits a full case of beer...
