My cases arrived last week and were installed right away. The cases arrive packed very well, installation was completed in about 2.5 hours. Great product, awesome customer service throughout my order. Could not be happier than with my choice to go with Micatech

Here's a pic from my shakedown cruise down to Key West to test out the new gear

Have you found any alternative uses for your Micatechs? Send us an email (info@micatech.net) and we'll share the photos on the Micatech Blog.

However, since we've done hundreds of installs we know a thing or two about making it go smoothly. We'll provide you with printed installation instructions, lend you our tools and will be close by to help answer any questions you might have.

Bummer. I'm about to get panniers now and had hoped for top loaders. Okay, thinking about it.

Received my bags today. Going to install them over the weekend. So far the quality looks awesome, very solid, really nice powder coating. Took me a bit to actually open the case case ... was a long day I guess.

So, now tell me - these two blue sleeves ... what are they for? Beer bottle sleeves?

Oh, and they look surprisingly small. Will have to see how I fit all my crap into two 8" cases.

Yeah, understood. I'm planning to. I've downsized the tent considerably for touring alone, the sleeping bag is already pretty small, need a smaller packing mattress, though. This stuff will fill a bit more than half of one pannier. Tools, cooking gear, some spares, rain gear, sandals, additional gloves will fill the rest. Leaves the second pannier for clothes and food. Should work just fine for me alone.

We'll see - and as said, I'll take photos.

Installed the cases on Saturday and had a chance to take some photos today. Will write more about the installation and cases when I have a bit more time.

Wink Micatech Pack Racks Now Available for the KLR650E and Triumph Tiger 800 & 800XC

Micatech is proud to announce that Pack Racks are now available for the Kawasaki KLR650E ('08-) and Triumph Tiger 800 & 800XC ('11-).

Last spring we offered a significant savings on V2 cases to celebrate the release of the new Triumph Tiger. The response was fantastic and many of you asked about adding a top case. At the time, we didn't have a Pack Rack, the critical connection piece to attach a Micatech Top Case to the motorcycle. However, thanks to a local Tiger rider, we got our hands on one of the new bikes and starting designing a new Pack Rack.



Motorcycle manufacturers don't always make it easy to design accessories. Fortunately, the folks and Triumph left the tail of the new Tiger accessible. After a few iterations we came to a design that's functional, durable and stylish. The Pack Rack compliments the sleek and rugged lines of the Tiger while adding a sturdy platform for extra storage capacity with a Micatech Top Case. The Top Case is back far enough to allow two-up riding and doubles as a backrest for your passenger! By the same token, we keep it as far forward as possible in order to keep the weight towards the center of the bike.



Not only did we add in plenty of places to attach bungee straps, we made them big enough for plastic tip models and ROK straps. And if you're headed out far off the beaten path, we've included an option to mount RotopaX containers for extra fuel/water storage.

In addition to the Triumph Tiger, we took a look at one of the greatest adventure bikes of all time - the Kawasaki KLR650. We have a few of the first generation (A) models around the shop but it wasn't until our friendly local KLR rider, Skip, let us borrow his new (E) model. In 2008 Kawasaki revamped their dual sport and it quickly became the bike of choice for many adventure riders. You emailed, called, and posted on our ADVrider thread that you wanted the ability to mount a Micatech Top Case onto your KLR650E. We listened and got to work.



The simple and rugged design replaces the standard KLR rear rack and adds extra tide down points, quarter-turn connectors to quickly mount a Micatech Top Case, and an option to mount Rotopax containers for extra fuel/water storage.





All Pack Racks are finished with a black colored industrial powder coat that we do right in house. Go to the Micatech Online Shop to order your Pack Rack today.

Kolpin fuel pacs

Hey Bob, looks like the Rotopax fuel packs mount about the same turn-key way that the Kolpins do so you can add Kolpins to your list of can-do's!!!! The Kolpins can also be mounted on the roof racks as the base can be wiggled in under the rack with maybe a hair of metal filed off.
