Hmmm... bags touching before pegs might be an issue.

Guess I'll wait and see what you come up with. Who knows... maybe the 08 will be different than previous year KLR's?

Thanks again for the info.

Attention V-Strom 650 owners

Hey V-Strom 650 Owners, I need a bike for a day or two here in Boulder CO to do some product development. You will get a nice big discount off a luggage system in return for the use of your bike for a day or two. If you already have one of our luggage systems, you'll get a rebate. Please contact me at 303-786-8947 or email info@adventure-motorcycle.com, or PM me. Thanks!

it may be an issue with a stock rear suspension, but if you beef up the rear spring to handle the weight it is back up there darn near even with the pegs. and the peg feelers that come on the 08's would hit first IMO.

Pelican Press Release

Here's a new press release from Pelican themselves, you guys already know this but it is nice to see something official....


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pelican Protector™ Case Used By
Caribou Luggage As Extreme Side Cases


TORRANCE, CA – May 31, 2007 - Pelican™ Products’ high-impact, watertight Protector™ Cases have been chosen as a key component of Adventure Motorcycle Equipment’s extreme Caribou Luggage solution for several prominent Adventure Touring motorcycle models.

“Using our case as motorcycle side-luggage goes to show just how versatile Pelican Protector™ Cases really are. Our tough-as-nails Protector Cases combined with Adventure’s innovative custom bike-luggage designs is a win-win situation for tourers everywhere,” said Matt Miller, Director of Sales for Pelican.

“After breaking my stock storage cases, I needed a tougher solution for side luggage on my bike. Since Pelican Cases are the first name in equipment protection, their toughness offered the most durable case on the market,” said Roger Pioszak, President of Adventure Motorcycle Equipment. “I’m confident that their legendary toughness will take any punishment today’s motorcycle tourers can dish out.”

With MSRP starting at $730, the Adventure Motorcycle Caribou Luggage system features a custom ¾” Square 16 GA tube steel rack designed to work with motorcycle models that include BMW R1200GS, 1150GS, 1100GS, and F650GS, the Kawasaki® KLR 650, the Buell® Ulysses and the Suzuki® V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 1000. Secured and mounted to the frame with NEMA 4 waterproof key locks, the custom side brackets turn the two Pelican 1550 Protector Cases into detachable suitcases, which offer a combined usable storage space of more than 3,000 cubic inches. A third case can also be added as rear top case to give the system even more capacity. Additionally, inner storage bags and tool kit cases are available for all systems to offer superior organization.

Pelican Protector Cases boast a fully-stackable, trademarked “Dual Band” design and a cell-core construction that protects sensitive equipment from some of the harshest conditions on Earth. Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dustproof/waterproof seal and an automatic Gore-TEX® pressure equalization valve that will stop moisture from entering the case and prevent vacuum lock so it’s easier to open the case at any altitude. To ensure easy and immediate access, most cases in the linefeature double-throw latches that have been tested to a failure threshold of nearly 400 pounds, but open with a light pull.

As with all Pelican products, their cases arebacked by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You break it, we replace it…forever.”

Congrats on the nice press, Roger. Maybe this will give you some leverage to get them to produce the top-loader you (er, we) want.

Just installed them on my Strom on Friday. I think you could lift the bike up using those racks. Nice job Roger!

These things are awesome. I cant wait to load up and head to Chicago to visit my buddy and give them a proper road test.

I've been using them for a few days now to run errands around town, and I've had no issues at all with the side loading. It's nice to be able to fit oddball sized items in there or several bags of groceries without getting the bread or eggs on the bottom.

Totally happy with my Caribou's.

Just returned from a 2800 mi. trip through West Virginia, Virginia,
North Carolina, Georgia and South Carolina. I have the Caribou cases on my Strom. Camped out every night. Great cases! I would'nt trade them for any other case system. Waterproof and tough. Highly recommended.

I have a full set of Caribou's on my V-Strom. I have to say that I'm impressed with the product. The installation was easy and painless. The performance of the cases is awesome in the bad wather up here. (Which we get a lot of up here in BC.)

I am also impressed with service from Roger. He became aware of a problem with the 07 Strom wheel clearing the rear bar. He then made up a replacement and sent it out. I'm impressed. I have never heard of someone being this proactive in dealing with a problem. Thanks.

Mike

Going to jump on the "What a great product" bandwagon.

Roger was great at answering my questions, both before and after the purchase. Installation was simple and painless, and they look and work great. I've got almost 20 yrs experience with Pelicans and cases like them in the military, and being able to put that level of a quality product on a motorcycle is top notch in my book.

Only comment I could make would be to ask that you make the color pictures in your installation a bit bigger. That might just be my eyes, though..

I bought both the side, and top box products from him. I'm considering getting the adventure pipe also, as I'm not really happy with my staintune. Too loud, no spark arrestor, and sits too close to Rogers mounts for my liking. Having to choose between the current exhaust and his cases is no contest.

Mark me down as willing to spend the $$...........

If you build it, I will buy it.

BTW, great forum. Found it via a link from: www.transamtrail.com
