Picked mine up today

Thanks Roger:

They arrived last Thursday at my mail drop while I was out of town on a business trip.

Picked them up 20 minutes ago. Top notch work! Now I have to wait for the bike to get delivered from Denver, Co.

Best Regards,

fair enough. When I actually can save the$$ to buy the case, maybe I'll give you a call and see if you want to order it for me and test if the jigs fit on my dime. I'm game to take the chance.

Question F650 overall width

Thanks for the compliment.

Hi Roger,
I was just looking on your site, it says the width is 38" . When I asked a while back you said they were 36". Can you let me know which is correct? I know it's a small difference and not really a deal breaker but theres something about having bags wider than the bars that bothers me.
BTW- these are still my favorite bags for this bike.
Thanks,
Gregg

I just measured mine, they're a hair under 37 inches wide on a '07 Dakar. They're an excellent product.

Thank you Richc. I guess we'll call it 37" for the F650GS. I have found that anything over 39" starts getting beyond what you can reasonably deal with in parking lots and tight spots. Basically, if you go much wider than the handle bars your intuition or "feel" for how wide your bags are becomes less accurate.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

Thanks Richc & Roger!

Top Box on KLR650

Roger,
Just wanted to let you know that at 90 speedometer mph for about 10 minutes on the FL turnpike I never had any problems with the top box system on the bike. No rattles (like I would be able to here them anyway) and the system is as solid as a rock (well it never came off).
I cannot wait to get my side cases (even though I have to). Thanks for the great customer service. It is not often that people email you to let you know there will be a delay in your order.

Roger any chance of you posting pic's of the F650GS top box and mounting plate?

Thanks and keep up the great work.

Roger - along the same lines. Can we buy just the plate? I'm not ready for a top case (yet), but would like something secure to strap stuff onto.

Buell Uly questions.

Great set up. I'm thinking about picking up a Uly this year and your luggage system looks like just the ticket. First, any idea on time frame for developement on a top case set up to go with the side cases? Second, do the side cases extend beyond the handlebars?

I'll have the pics up here in a few days, there was a delay in powder coating for a week because the shop moved. Yes, you can buy just the rear cargo plate, it has lots of tie-down points. I have not figured out the pricing yet, but will do so by the time I have the pics.

I don't need bags right now, but just stumbled across this thread and wanted to offer a compliment on how good this system looks.

You've done a nice job, best of luck.
