What size/part number Pelicans did you use front and rear and what did you use to mount the rear Pelican?

Edit-Also where did you get the gascap quick mount device?

Sorry for the delay, I'm not getting any emails from advrider...

The tank box is a Pelican 1200, and the rear is a Pelican 1510, with the wheels and handle removed, with Lid Organizer.

I drilled 5 holes and screwed the box right to the plastic BMW tail rack, after removing the silver trim and screwing right into the factory holes used to hold the trim.




The gas cap mount/tank ring from SW-MOTECH. The mount comes with their tank bag, the ring is or can be bike specific. When I mounted the ring they didn't make one for my bike, and I had one from a r1150r so I got the drill out and made it work.









After drilling the tank cap this is both rings screwed together.








After bolting them together, I was able to see where I was going to have to dremel out so it would fit back on the orange piece correctly





After cutting some notches out.






A little more grinding to make it fit.







Finished, this was the original SW-MOTECH bag that I replaced with the Pelican.








* Update*

Since the original post I discovered industrial velcro, and have been adding more crap to the box... hmmm velcro...





I also have covered the pull release with a small metal box I cut up and shaped to fit. I always thought it wouldn't take a genius to look under it and see the clip to pull, so I covered it and now there's a zip-tie on the inside going through a tiny hole to release it. A little added security.








Note to self- use stainless steel hardware next time...

I laughed when I saw this - I've got one of those SKB boxes, but my compressors are in it so I won't be mounting it to my bike. I have to wonder, though, what did you do with the hole in the back (now bottom)?

RoyB, I poked around your photo site and there is some really great stuff in there! I especially like your clean work and thorough explanation regarding the custom windshield bending!

I really like these cases HighTechCoonass. They look great !
I saw some on the web for around $ 70 each.
I was wondering how tough are they (Compare the Pelican cases) ?
Are they water proof ?
Can you tell us more ? I'd like to know more about them. Thanks in advance !

My home-made skidplate:


Recently completed storage tube that attaches to the SW-Motech quick-release side rack mounts:



El cheapo Wal-Mart foglights adapted to the bike:


My mini-dash (look lower right) made of the corner of the plastic casing from an old broken multi-meter I was tossing:


And finally, though a little off topic, a stand I made for the Zumo so I could use it in the car:


Nothing makes me happier than when I can use some of the crap I've pack-ratted for years to make a useful item. Validates both my cheap-ass nature and the pack-ratting!
