Here's a quick pic of my Caribou/Pelican 40L. I'm hoping to get my jacket & riding jeans in it, though I may wind up putting one of them in my pack while I'm hiking. For trip & running errands its a nice size.

If you can get any pics of his mount on the right side, it would be great.


Disclaimer. I had been drinking a glass or two of wine when I was trying to mount it up so that may have been my problem....

Part of my problem is that I had everything snug but night tight. Tightening everything up moved things enough that there is some more clearance but not much more. If I remove the extender, that makes the rear of the exhaust higher and even closer to the rack. I am out of town on a trip but will mess with it when I get back and take some pics.

Sooooooooooo, I built my own! 12w x 20L x 16h. I think that comes out to about 62 liters. I wasn't planning on building anything that big, but I eyeballed most the measurements and here's what I got. I've still got to seal them, paint them, build the lid and attach points. It's been fun, but it also tested my fading metal working skills. Let me know what you think. Kris

Yes. End the end, I took the dremel to the curved piece that mounts to the frame that the muffler straps bolt to and elongated the holes a smidge. It have me enough clearance to clear the rear bracket that goes to the frame. And I am using the extension piece you get from Jesse. Finished it up last night after I came home off of my trip.

Next inline is to get the top box mounted up.

SAN - MrPX did a fine job. Not only aesthetically pleasing, but sturdy looking too. Your last pic with the stack of "beverly hillbilly's" gear, hid actual racks - nice!
