Jim, yes the one case fits all bikes, just the rack/rail system that attaches to the bike changes.

So I'll offer just the Pelican case with the Cairbou bracket attached & locks, the Caribou Rack/Rail system alone, and then the whole enchilada.

For those do-it-yourself Pelican projects I'll offer just the Pelican case with the integrated lock, or just the plain Pelican cases.

There's more, but too far out timewise to talk about right now.

Caribu Cases

Roger,

I sent you a note earlier today.

I'm really impressed with your new designs and I look forward to seeing your V Strom results as well as the top case designs your working on. I'm especially interested in the expanded top case design because I ride one up on the Strom.

Please keep us informed when you get the V Strom cases on line.

the external locking latch is brilliant. makes it so easy to pack them into the hotel/house at night.

Two things:

HURRY UP with the KLR version. I want them.

A good option IMO would be keyed-alike helmet locks. It would be nice to have two helmet locks--on the back of each box.

third thing, when you do the KLR rack, please do a good job of leaving passenger footroom like you did on the GS version (unlike the leading KLR racks today )

BRAVO...LOOKS GOOD.......I have beat up Pelican products for many years...they take the abuse....


the Givi's on my weestrom are too damn wide (48" !!!)...

the system cases on My GS look nice, but are pretty small....

I use Ortleib soft bags on my KLRs....but a lsecurity is weak.....


about damn time.....be prepared, since copy cats will be drooling already

persoanlly I would add some bungee gear loops to strap more stuff and tie down onto the boxes too....

you are on the right track...good for you....

Yeah, tell me about it. It's like some kind of torture device for the passenger when there is only room for a heel contact on the peg. I'm on it.

The helmet lock is an interesting idea and something I'll look into in time. How about a little battery operated flashlight inside the case?

Well, I filed a patent on the mounting system so poachers beware! The bungee and gear loops can be done by drilling a hole through the top fins of the case. Or, I can get those gear loops and put them in, but I think this is a personal preference with regard to where they are located. Maybe offer them as an add-on with install instructions.

I expect to have the 1200GS done by March. Like the 1150GS, it is pretty straight forward with nice mounting points on rear the subframe.

I am using the 1550's for the side cases. The lid of the Pelican case does not have the reinforced lugs like the back of the case does. This is a big strength issue. Although if you really wanted to you can do it that way too.

Well I have to do the high volume bikes (11xxGS, F650GS, KLR, V-Strom, 1200GS) first to pay the bills. The KTM's are TBD.
