So far as I know, Tom has some Pelican cases on the production floor, thanks to AtlasEXP. Fitting them to the system should be no problem.

The Givi's are 21 liters each and I'll try to get some pics of them loaded up with gear to give you an idea of how much they hold. For me, they're the only plastic cases I'd put on a dirt bike. They're light as a feather and somewhat flexible too. The rounded edges are a huge plus in my opinion. And they're fairly inexpensive too. That is just MY opinion though.

You can easily put the Pelicans or seahorses on there too. I will supply you with the simple hardware to do that at no extra charge. Nyloc nuts on the inside of the case will prevent someone from turning the bolts from the outside because they'll just spin on the inside. I can explain this further if you'd like. Just PM me with a phone number and I could call you.

Thanks for inquiring! - Tom
Tom,

Thanks for the come back.

Pictures would be cool, no rush you seem pretty busy.

Thanks

Ron

As far as the box's go I'm thinking something simple like a few waterproof thru bolts nothing fancy like quick release.

One more thing, looking from the rear does the exhaust side stick out further than the left side?

thanks

Hey Ron, here is a pic from the back with the Givi E21's on it. Sorry it took so long to find it!

I do Tim! I think they're the 1550's. I'll come up with something eventually to allow quick detachment. A few customers just bolted them on through the bungee loops using fender washers. They hold nice and tight with no movement.

Having lived with and ridden with the E21s, they have my vote as one of the better hard boxes that one could mount on a DRZ. They are rugged, dry, cheap, secure, won't hurt you in a drop, and have approximately the same capacity as the Wolfman Expedition panniers, which are my favorite for dual-sporting. They are fairly small, but you really don't want to pig out a DRZ with a ton of luggage. If you need to take the kitchen sink, you're on the wrong bike. The convenience of top-loading hard cases cannot be overstressed. I know a couple of guys that have taken extended tours with the E21s and a duffel, and carried all they needed.

The system that Tom put together here is very elegant and secure. I'm not giving up my Wolfman bags any time soon, but if I did, I would give these a look. If you want hard bags that can be ridden hard, these are it.

Tom sweated the positioning on these. They don't interfere with the rider, which is a huge benefit. Take your shin off while dismounting on other systems and you'll understand what I mean.

Tom,

A few questions.....

Great pic, just what I was looking for. For giggles what's the overall width with the Givi's?

One other question, will this work with the top rack I presently have on my SM, It looks similar in design to your rack but way narrower? It seems like your side rack system attaches to your wider top rack.

Here is a link to the rack I have, from Ebay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUZUKI-DR-Z4...sories&vxp=mtr

After looking it over the Givi's might be the best choice...Canuman is right when he says that if I need bigger than the Givi 21L I probably need a bigger bike

Ron

Ron,

The overall width of the Givi's is 35". That's one inch wider than the handlebars with the bar end weights in place.

My side racks and top rack are completely independent of each other. They both use the same subframe tab to attach to, but the top rack attaches to the back of it while the side racks attach to the front of it. This way you can have just a top rack or just side racks or both at the same time.

The rack you show a link to will not interfere with my side racks at all.

EDIT: The only side racks that attach to the top rack is the DRZ-E model because there's no place else to attach them. The E model has a different subframe that doesn't have attachment points, so they have to attach to the top rack. I believe I'm the only one making a setup like that for the E.

Thanks, Tom

Wlfman, the big RotopaX looks great on the rack. That should give you an additional 85 miles or so. I think it's time I upgrade to the 1.75gal too.

Thanks for posting the pics of your bike!

That 1.75 sits on there kind of like the rack was designed for it, doesn't it?

I have a spare 1.75 that you can borrow until the cash God starts smiling your way, Tom.

Thanks Tim, I appreciate that. It does fit quite nicely huh? Are you using yours for the Newfoundland ride?

I've got two 1.75s and a one gallon Rotopax. I'm thinking the best solution for Newfoundland would be to use the 1.75 on the top rack and the one gallon on the left, which would leave one 1.75 availabe. I recall you're on the stock DRZ tank, which isn't a mileage leader. As long as we're somewhere around 150 miles with a decent reserve, I think things will pan out.
