would you be able to rig up a pelican 1620 case as a top box with your rack and locks?

please contact pelican and tell them we need a top box from them....that cube case 0340 they sell is close but not quite the solution. I'd like to keep the look of the pelicans and a matching top box that holds a helmet would be great.

Thumb Thumbs up, Roger

Roger, after quite a few months of not having time to do it, I finally bolted on your system and the Pelican cases. The Wee-Strom is all set for a long trip to Montana. I just want to tell everybody how good a job you did on the design and construction. Everything went together just fine, tolerances were nice and tight, the road test last Sunday of 400+ miles showed me that the cases are rock solid. Thanks, Roger, for a great job, I'm one happy soon-to-be-camper.

We don't recommend or sell the 1620 as a top case due to size and weight.

We are still trying to get a loaner bike, and any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Looks like a decent color match too . Myself partial to yellow/black bikes, I have two of them. Thank you for the kind feedback.

Hey Roger--

Great system! Any thoughts on the best way to rig a set of side cases, and possibly a top case to a 2001 Suzuki SV 650 N? (buying a V-Strom 650 and making the SV a trackbike is not currently a feasible option...)

Thanks,

Cyclecat

Givi makes a set of racks for the SV 650 (although I don't know what the "N" stands for), so you can get them and then attach our ALS Luggage for Givi Racks. Please visit www.cariboucases.com for more detail on our ALS luggage solution for Givi racks. You can get Givi racks form RLmotorcycles.com or twistedthrottle.com.

Hi Roger.
I've jut put Givi racks on my 07 GSA (keeps the soft panniers off the pipe).
I'm a long way from the US and can't really see the differences between the sizes of the cases you have.
Why are the cases so close together in literage? (is that even a word?)
From what you've seen what looks best and is easiest to live with on a bike the size of a GSA?

Cheers

The BMW 1200GSA is plenty big and powerful to load up so any of our cases will work fine. If you travel two-up, or if you need lots of space, the 40L are the ticket. There is significant capacity difference between the 40L and the other two (35L and 36L). Hope this helps.

Here's a supremely dumb question for you Roger

If I got the cases set up for my Givi and then you released a frame for the 07GSA .. hang on, even as I type this it sounds stupid ... even for me ... maybe I should just wait till you come up with a frame.

Here's a better question, how do you rate the strength of the givis over your frame?

It's good to know there's a market there for you

cheers
