Went for a snow ride!

Keeping this thing rubber side down in the snow is an excersize in self control!

We only did a short loop of the town, the looks were priceless!

Pelican cases

Getting sooooo close on finishing my 1550 side cases. I just have to build the mounts, and they'll be done.

what is it you ask?

a cheap, white, plastic cutting board. strong, light, water resistant, and heat resistant (to a point). like i said, Keep It Simple Stupid.



great thing is, it also doubles as a cutting board.

told ya i was a little crazy.

laters,

laramie

Great minds think alike! My top case is mounted on a black cutting board bought at Target. I had to use two nylon spacers to get the case leveled up:

Those are "KTM" branded Gualdi cans, and that is the only way you can mount them. Odd, I know. KTM sold these back in '04 and '05. The PO of my bike was a KTM rep and put these on the bike before I bought it. They're really pretty good overall -- not too quiet, not too loud.

Normally not a hardcase guy but...

This I REALLY LIKE... thin, clever, look light, look strong... like the rep. of Pelicans too. Can't wait to see the mount.

Trust me, they do:







If you try to mount them the other way, the mounts don't line up and the little KTM decal thing would be facing directly down. My guess is that I have early production cans and that Gualdi rotated them in later production runs.
