What is this? A box, left right here out in the middle of the floor....

The back story: A few weeks ago I was chatting with SpartanBabe and mentioned riding next weekend since Troubadour was going to be doing some Team Oregon training in Portland. She stated that she was signed up a 5k (3 mile) run in Sublimity for their Harvest Festival that day.
I hummed and hawed and thought about it and asked her if she minded company for the run. She thought it sounded like a good idea and before I knew it I'd signed up for my first 5k run.
The only problem with riding to run is that I didn't have luggage for Max and had no way of carrying my running shoes, water bottle, etc. The search was on for luggage.
On Sunday after returning from Tacoma, we were surfing the interweb and saw pictures of the blue Cortech luggage, then learned it is now discontinued. To eBay.... Luckily we found a seller that had several sets of the blue in stock for MSRP. Sure it would have been nice to get them a little cheaper but I was happy to have found them at all.
After a small discussion we decided to go for it. It was delivered Friday and hubby mounted them for me yesterday morning so that I could get a feel for the weight as we rode to coffee. I was a little worried about how bright they are, but when on a bike we want to be as visible as possible right?

As I was sitting on the bike ready to leave the coffee shop, Troubadour asked for my camera and took the following picture.
