And got an email that it shipped this afternoon.

On topic, I came home to a stack of boxes at my door from Jesse today...

Just FYI for others out there. I had read on another Tiger board that the stock luggage is heavy and weighs about 30 lbs. Well, not quite. With mounts it weighs over 50 lbs!

In my experience, that is a staggering amount of weight for boxes that only rated at an 11 lbs each capacity. No wonder Triumph has a quick adjust headlight screw.

I just picked up a set second hand from another inmate, (Thanks again John!) but wow they are mind numbingly heavy for what you get.

Gee...they seemed light compared to my old jessies.The top case on my 955 sez 5kg - the bloody case weighs more than that! Me thinks the lawyers probably printed all the warning stickers...and the owners manual. "do not ride this motorcycle over 5 mph - death may result"

The mounts were one of the things I mostly liked about the setup, but I've also always thought Triumph's mounts were kind of weird at the back.

I don't know where to start....these are FREAKIN' AWESOME.
Just what I wanted. Tough. Simple. Easy to install (well one bloodied knuckle)
They actually look pretty good and they take away the passenger footpeg option nicely (don't like taking passengers)

Thank you is an understatement of how happy I am with these.
I'll get photos....

Thanks for the kind words. Don't forget that photo, I'd like too see how the whole package turned out.

Nice! Thanks for the pic, that's the EXACT setup I'm getting - case is in the mail, so to speak. I was a bit worried that the 40 was going to look inordinately large on the bike, but it looks great. I'm considering Caribou for a couple of small-ish side cases as well, what are you going to do for side cases?

MisterPX custom made racks on my Tiger.
One photo packed up for Mendocino National Forest after 20 miles of scary mud.
As you can see my ortlieb bags attached nicely and didn't flop around a bit on the ruts and washboard.
More to come

I'm kinda getting tired of spending money on farkles. I have some Wolfman Expedition Dry Bags laying around that I have used one time on my XR650L. All it would take is a set of racks to mount them up. About 800 dead presidents will get me some Caribou side racks and cases.. Will have to decide soon for my annual trip to the Smokies.
