Great bunch of folks and you'll get more than your membership costs back, and be part of a very good bunch. I know some of the money from that site goes to charity, so you'll be doing a good thing too.

Right oh, I will look into that!

Is there any way you could make up a mounting rack system like the KLR or ... for my 88 NX650? I really like these. In fact I've been researching the pelicans for a while now and recently bought a mig welder and... well... then you came along. Lemme know!

I don't usually like to be the sweaky wheel, but the obvious demand for this excellent system demands that a man speak up or get buried by the rushing hordes around here...

I'm dying to see what you come up with for the KTM 640.


Keep up the good work AdventurePipe. just bump that KTM up the list a bit will ya.

I'm working on the KLR now, V-strom is up next. After that it will be the other thumpers (KTM, Suzuki, Honda), and maybe the KTM 950 and Buell, to be scheduled over the spring/summer.

I've also designed the retention straps to keep your stuff in place when you open the case, and developed the optional 2 liter tool kit case.

Have you had a chance to check if your top case mount will work on a 1150 GSadv rack?
Also will the Side cases swap with the top box?

Hairsmith, I don' t have the top case or mounting plate design done, but I plan to make a flat plate that will accept the case, and this plate will double as a rear rack. I don't see a problem attaching this plate to an existing rear rack (some spacers my be needed). The top case will probably not swap with the side case because the bracket attached to the case will be a little different. A top case and a side case have different load/support requirements, and to make one fit both would compromise one or both.

I installed a set of Roger's cases on my 2002 R1150GS Adventure a couple of weeks ago. The installatiion went flawlessly, everything bolted right up without having to use the optional spacers provided in case of exhaust clearance issues. I have been riding with them on now for a couple of weeks and everything is as promised, they mount securely, look like they would come off as designed in a get-off (I've given them a couple of good yanks and they've hung in there, so they won't come off too easily). They are waterproof and good looking too, I've been holding off putting stickers on them cause there so pretty, guess I need to get out in the woods and scratch 'em up.
Y'all look for a set of beat up system cases for sale in the Flea Market soon! Heck I might even sell my Givi topcase too as these Pelican's will hold my briefcase as well. I give the Caribou cases the

Roger, I realize that you have tons of folks here with tons of suggestions, but I would like to encourage you to continue development of the large and larger topcases for the BMW GS series of bikes. I have one of the Jesse topcases that mounts over the passenger position and frankly it was the availability of that case that sold me on Jesse luggage. Those things are the #1 way to carry large loads on these bikes.

You have a good concept, and I hope that you do well with it.

There will be optional tool cases that piggy back on to the back-side of the main Pelican case for most bikes. This takes advantage of some empty space down low...

And yes there is plenty of room for the final drive travel.

A view of the tool case off the bike, about 2 liters of space....


Don't suppose this would fit?


It is about 12" by 12" for the body plus the extra inch or two for the nozzle.

Yes, I forgot to mention top cases for all bikes to be designed this summer after I get the side cases done. Thanks for the correction.

Too big. The tool case is about 8x6x3 internal dimensions.

I'm curious about the V-Strom version of your mounting racks. Do you plan to utilize the extra space on the left side of the DL650 (thanks to the single exhaust canister) for additional storage, perhaps for a small tool or flat-repair case, or will the 650 kit truly be identical to the DL1000 kit?

that's what I thought. back to sigg bottle or Meier jugs.

But the toolcase is big enough for my entire tire kit -- patches, front tube, pump and irons

Tim, That small Pelican case shown in the pics above (attached to the larger 1550 Pelican case) will be an option for most bikes including the 650 VStrom. That space on the non-exhaust side can be well utilized, especially for heavy items like tools since it lowers CG and keeps weight closer to the bike.
