I don't see a problem offering different colors, but I'll probably stock only black so if someone wants another color there will be an additional week or so lead time. As far as sizes go, I may do smaller cases for the thumpers.

Birdman,

This would fall into the second wave that would be designed in late '06, if at all. Need to see the sales volumes of these bikes and how HD does with this model in '06. I am hopeful this bike will do well.

Some small top-openers would be awesome. My Givi E21's seem to be a nice size and volume -- dunno how the Pelican offerings compare.

You might rethink that logic seeing that the cases Buell offers are very hard to get right now and they are in high demand. Additionally, it seems you mounting looks much better when the bags are removed.

Of course it is your work and your call.

This is exactly what I am looking for in a side case system for my 01 Dakar. You build it I'll buy it. (Glad I saw this post! I'll be waiting awhile on this upgrade now.)

I like the fact that it's a system that is tough but not aluminum - If it was posted already, I did not see it... what is the total weight of this system? This is a concern for my little 650.

I've got an 03 F650 GS Dakar that needs a pannier set up. I'm looking forward to your final design and the price. Hope you're selling them before I neeed them. I was all set to order the Zegas next week, but I can wait a few months.

I'll probably offer the Pelican cases and the rack system as a seperate items. In fact you can get all the Pelican products through me, and I can integrate locks into many of them
...

For those who are unfamiliar with the Pelican line of products, one of the really nice benefits of dealing with that great company is the fact that all their stuff is lifetime warranted, and will replace anything that you manage to break, which is almost impossible to begin with. Even airport baggage monkeys have not done anything to a case I fly my dive gear in, which weighs about 50 pounds loaded. Motorcycle use is nowhere near that stressful. I have nikon cameras and gear in several other cases that have been dropped and bounced all over the place without damage with the internal foam filler.

This system for the motorcycles is great! Now I need to get a 1200GS Adventure to fit the cases!

Have you looked into the Cube Pelican cases for the top box? I think they have a 20" and a 24" cube. Would be tall enough to put a helmet in. Would need some extra support and probably have to cover the passenger seat area.

The cubes are a bit big and heavy. The mounting plate would have to span the passenger/pillion area to avoid rear sub-frame failure potential.

As a general update, the 1150GS system is heading to powder coat next week so it is a couple of weeks behind schedule but moving along. The F650GS prototype will be done this week and ready for testing. I have a 1200GS in the shop right now and am working on the initial design. The poor KLR is sitting outside and waiting in line behind the 1200GS.

Roger,
Looking forward to seeing that F650GS system available. Will the 1550's look too big on the 650?
In looking at the Pelican catalog, they now have a top opening case in a medium size, the 1430. Have you seen this case, and is it adaptable to your system?
Keep up the good work.

1600's on R80G/S

Here is my setup. using stock G/S saddlebag brackets, and angle iron mounts, with a latch on the rear. The 1600's are a bit big, rear pegs not available for passengers, but the driver can put feet back there.

i sure like your latching system!



I can take more photos if interested parties want more info. My friend told me to get the 1600 case, but didn't realize he had the 1550 on his K100, so the 1550 case is probably better, but for solo riding, these work well. I rode 200 miles in washboard/dirt roads on the way home from Phoenix, and they stayed on through everything.

I think the 1430 is going to be just too small at only 17 liters, and it has no reinforced lugs on the back for solid mounting. The 1520 is going to be fine for a smaller thumper Dual Sport bike (i.e. DRZ) at about 25 liters. The 1550 is probably the best all-around Pelican case for motorcycle luggage in terms of size and cost at 34.7 liters, and this is what I plan to use on the F650GS, 11XXGS, 1200GS, V-Strom, KLR and other similar size bikes. The 1600 will take out the passenger foot peg unless it hangs way off the back (not a great feature) it is 47 liters.
