If you can get your mitts on the Kinetics surplus cases they're top notch but they're sometimes hard to source. I just saw some selling on fleabay cheap but they were too big for bike use.
thanx!

I've never handled a seahorse case, but the reviews you can read in many places speak volumes. Their cases that are comparably sized to Pelican 1550's are quite a bit cheaper.

Might snag a few from amazon for camera cases, etc. There are a few neat ways to turn pelican/seahorse cases into a camp kitchen over on expedition portal.

I had a Seahorse 9.9 outboard. It didnt hold much under the lid, but it helped my little dinghy become a big johnson.

Speaking of cool new black adventure bikes...

" The British bike was chosen due to its recent narrow victory over the F800 GS in our 2011 Middleweight Adventure Touring Comparo. The Tiger’s scores are listed on the final scorecard for general reference, but it does not receive an official placing against the open-class machines. That said, there’s a big question as to whether or not those big-displacement, high-dollar machines are really necessary to get the job done."

That is not a valid question. Everyone knows the Super Tenere is the best one out there. It has "Super" in the name. So, right there, that makes it the best. Regardless of any idiot so called journalists out there. They just need to get back on their scooters and shutup.

In closing, the Super Tenere wins in all categories. Even more so when they are Blue Super Tenere's.
