First time riding this 500 mile dirt and broken pavement route. Couldn't find a riding partner so going it solo. May do a live ride report if anyone's interested?
With the gracious help of some generous inmates my route plan is ready. After catching up on my prep and packing I'll start a live report today... (Wednesday, April 3rd) prior to leaving tomorrow ( Thursday, April 4th). I'll be posting in the Day Trippin section for anyone interested.

Installed the (OEM type?) pannier frames and a set of H&B Junior panniers that I picked up from two inmates here.

The Juniors wouldn't latch tightly to the frames; that's when I found the frame latches on the cases could be repositioned.


Now they're on there tight as a drum.

Topbox

Mounted the Seahorse SE-540 last night.







Just the right size for my rain gear and some additional emergency stuff I always carry with me. It looks sturdy and well made and for a lot less than a Pelican case. I am happy with it.

$55 w/SS locks - Wow, that's a remarkable price. You say it's sturdy enough? At that price it's worth getting just to try it out.

Thanks for the report

Auch and shipping to Sweden would add another $350 to the price so not an option.

Have a cheapo style but dont like that its hinged in the middle so top and bottom are the same size, its not a high as that one.

Working on cutting some foam for it to protect the electronics when it gets rough.

Think its the controller. When all 4 lights start flashing, you know she's gone.

The antennae is on the GPS, I don't have a separate mount for it. It's just folded down.

It's very well made. I don't have a similar sized Pelican to compare it to, but I'm more than happy with the quality. It's built like a tank. I also like the cube shape. The Pelican 1450 is too flat for what I wanted. This is perfect.

I gave her a 30k service, add second fan (ktm exc), and some more orange love (crash bars, LC8, rear handle bar).

Took a break from other projects to change the oil and a few basic maintenance items on the KTM
