Holy movie references Batman! i found that movie for a dollar and watched it: truly amazing. Not for the modern movie type at all, but I am eclectic and will sit thru almost anything (I sat thru Gone with the Wind... it sucked bad ). Did you get to watch a DVD copy with the interviews and commendary? If not PM me your address and I will send you a present!

Got it in hand Ricky, "Criterion Collection" DVD of Andrei Tarkovsky's 1966 "Andrei Rublev"



http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...01635?v=glance
"Immediately suppressed by the Soviets in 1966, Andrei Tarkovsky's epic masterpiece is a sweeping medieval tale of Russia's greatest icon painter. Too experimental, too frightening, too violent, and too politically complicated to be released officially, Andrei Rublev has existed only in shortened, censored versions until the Criterion Collection created this complete 205-minute director's cut special edition, now available for the first time on DVD. "

$35 bucks, BAH! your today for the amazingly low price of just being a bang up fella!

be careful the "comy" police is out in patrol today we can get in a lot of trouble by taking about something as unAmerican as a Soviet film..

Thanks that is really freaking cool,,Criterium collection and everything...

if you find any more funky film like that please buy them for me and i give you some $ later.

Hi Auslander,

Is it easy to remove the topcase, or is it fixed to the bike?

I was thinking of using a Pelican case as topcase (to transport some photo equipment) mounted on the Touratech topcase plate, so it would be easy to remove. Does anyone have this setup?

A few years back I had a discussion with the Pelican people about the likelyhood of a box cracking at a drilled hole. They basically agreed with my assesment that it would not crack, although obviously they need to protect themselves in the event it did happen.
The plastic is very soft which is excellent for not cracking, that combined with the feature of those little pockets with thicker material around them, it's like they were meant to be drilled. I would rather drill and take my chance than have 40 lbs of framework surrounding the pannier.
As a further precaution you can do what I used to do,....use 1" fender washers, with 1" rubber washers underneath on the inside of box,....on the outside of box, custom cut a thick rubber washer to fit in that recessed area and then a plastic spacer. The whole surface is surrounded by rubber, very little weight hanging on the bolt holes this way. I usually used 1/4" or 6mm fasteners for these.
If you attach lid to rack, instead of main compartment, you have just created a hard to use pannier. In fact one really nice feature of a Pelican box is that the lid is shallow, so gear can stay relatively in place when the lid is opened. Even Original factory luggage has the useless feature of opening clamshell style in the middle. OEM luggage is also thinner and cracks easy compared to Pelican. So it is a worthy project to mount Pelican boxes, if one ever did crack as a result of a crash, the $70 Pelican is still cheaper than buying a replacement Aluminum pannier.
If Pelican made that 1420 in a larger size it would be superior to Aluminum luggage in almost every way.

If you mount the Pelicans the way you described, common sense says there's no way those babies are ever going to crack.

Especially if the mounts are designed to release with sufficient force. The intent of this is to save the rack and/or bike but just as easily could protect the Pelicans as well.

Question Question to aazemeerboy

I am sitting on the fence regarding installing larger bags on my 1150GS for two up touring. What size are those pelicans on your 1100GS and what could be the largest practical size if you wanted to go larger without affecting the pillion position?

I used the Mt Sun mount... he sells it with the bags for $900! I just used the mounts and bought my own bags as they are $90 a piece...
I will have better pictures... I like them because the bags will fly off when the bike is dumped! They are "Kinetic bags"

That is the plate the bags mount on with clips and a bungee system which i have to admit is very clever...
