Looking at some hard luggage options for my twin.

Looking at Trax


or Krauser (Hepco and Becker)




Both cost about the same. Hepco's look a little nicer dont they?

Whats your experience with the products?

Have a look at this thread Here too.
It's in Greek but it has plenty of photos.
It is some guys here in Greece that made hard cases.
They take orders.

The inspiration for the project was an Africa

Thanks for the links guys!

I checked out the trax and the krauser. The Trax is relatively cheaply made and more of an ALU looking box. Its got plastic hinges for pete sake!

The krauser on the otherhand... Its heavy and it feels ALOT stronger.

Just some tips :)

Look what the cat dragged in...



It'll probably take me months to get the stuff mounted but hey, it's a start.

That looks nice. I am looking for something like that to convert the look of my bmw f800gs. May I ask where you bought that from in case I decide to actually begin the conversion?
