Just an opinion on the Caribou side case set up. Tough, well built and functional. I had a set on my '05 DL 1000, and they served me well.
Just thought I'd chime in for you guys considering Caribou cases for your new 800's. They worked very well for me. I've run them across the US and back, packing heavy, camping and running all manner of roads and weather. Never crashed them, but I believe they would have held up well, if I had. Caribou's mounting frame setup is quite robust. Good stuff, IMHO.
