    Thanks for the response. Do you have any estimate of how long it will take to get a kit if someone orders now?

    Hi Manish - we're probably looking at around 45-60 days from factory order date for delivery. We've seen systems arrive sooner, but that's probably a good estimate. We place orders with Holan once a month and our January order just went in this morning, but I can add on to that if you're interested in moving forward. Email me at sales AT advmotorrad DOT com and we're happy to get you set up.

    Thanks!

    The Bumot panniers for a '12 R1200 GS, are they quick disconnect from the racks? I can't see the way they attach.

    Hi Scott - they are. They use a fairly standard fixed mount that drops onto the lower rack tube with rotating cam arms that tighten into the place at the top. All mounting blocks are made from polyamide nylon (heavy duty stuff) and the mounting arms are steel with aluminum tightening knobs. I've attached a few pictures of the mounting system for an F800GS for reference; the R1200GS and R1150GS systems are slightly different but the same concept.

    Any other questions, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Hi Dan - thanks for your interest in the BUMOT racks. We're really excited to bring their luggage systems into North America!

    Our first order is scheduled to leave Bulgaria on our about 2/16, and we should receive it, have it inventoried, and turned around by end of the month if not sooner. There is a set of R1150GS racks on that order but they've already been pre-ordered by another customer...we've actually sold quite a bit of our initial inventory before it arrives! We'll be placing regular restocking orders with BUMOT and building up our inventory here over the next few months, but if you'd like to pre-order a set of racks and be certain to get them on our next shipment from the factory, I'd be happy to get you setup. Feel free to PM me here, or call at (585) 310-ADVM with any questions.

    Thanks again!

    Jason

    Hi Jason,

    I just tried to place an order on your website using the discount code "ADVRIDER" and got the message that "Warning: Coupon is either invalid, expired or reached it's usage limit!", is the ADVRider discount no longer valid?

    Hi ADKADVRIDER - we had to disable the discount at the end of 2013 due to increasing costs from our suppliers. We are still committed to maintaining very competitive pricing, and will offer specific discounts and deals as often as we can. PM or call me at (585) 310-ADVM and I'll see if there's anything I can do to get you hooked up.

    Thanks!

    Is there a Bumont application for the Tiger 800XC in the future?

    Hey Drunk_Uncle - both the BUMOT and I would love to get some racks built for the Tiger 800, 1200, and 1050, and even the older 885 / 955. The challenge is there aren't any Triumph dealers in Bulgaria and they haven't been able to find any Tigers to use for prototyping racks. If you're on T-Rat or some of the other Triumph forums and happen to know of any Tiger riders around Sofia, Bulgaria, please let me know and I'll get them in touch with BUMOT. :D

    I will definitely post new applications in the dedicated BUMOT thread here and also list them here in our vendor thread.

    Thanks!

    Hey Jason. I just finished installing the Holan Pro crash bars for my 800GS. Hopefully I will be able to order the luggage racks soon. Thanks again for answering all my questions, and the quick shipping.

    Hey Boxmonkey - glad to hear it, and thanks for the feedback! If you've got any pictures of your GS with the bars installed, feel free to post 'em up....bike porn is always welcome and appreciated. :D

    Hi,
    Do the BMW engine guards need to be removed to fit the valve cover guards?
    Thanks,
    GDD.

    Hi GDD - customers have managed to install the head guards on while the BMW bars are mounted, but you'll have an easier time if you pull the crashbars first.

    Thanks!

    I've been asking about BUMOT panniers in a different thread but see you distribute Holan too, which have a nicer shape and are offered in grey (but no toolbox!)

    What are the other primary differences in these systems?

    Hey Curvesurfer - great question! We're fortunate enough to be the North American distributor for two of the best "Adventure-grade" pannier systems on the market.

    There are different benefits to each system...some of the highlights:
    • BUMOT has the optional integrated locking toolbox, keyed alike to your panniers. It's a very slick system and a great use of otherwise unused space.
    • Both use 2mm aluminum in their construction. BUMOT overlaps the lower floor section a bit more, providing a 4mm thick protective "ring" all the way around the perimeter of the pannier. Holan has similar construction - the overlap is not quite as much, but the benefit is still there if the bike goes over. The 2mm material really helps prevent deformation and/or collapse in case of an "off" versus cases made from 1.5mm aluminum.
    • Both use heavy duty bespoke racks that double as a rear crashbar for the bike if the bike takes a nap.
    • Holan cases have hinged latches at either end, allowing you to fully disconnect the lid or tilt from one end or the other. BUMOT cases have fixed friction hinges on the side, and the lid can't be removed - good for making sure you don't lose it when you forget to latch it....don't ask me how I know. :D
    • Holan cases have a few more options when it comes to sizing, finishes, rack material, etc. You can get mild steel or stainless steel racks, natural aluminum, matte gray, or matte black pannier finishes, and three different size panniers on all systems. There are also other factory installed options such as lower strap brackets, ADV toolboxes to mount underneath the panniers, etc. that are available.
    • BUMOT includes many of the options that others (including Holan) charge separately for. Powdercoating inside and out is standard. Lock cylinders (keyed alike) in all the latches are standard. Quick release top case plates (if desired) are available and at a lower cost, versus the bolt-down design for Holan. When spec'd out the same, a BUMOT system will come in at lower price point than Holan and/or almost any of the other similarly designed systems, while still providing an incredible level of quality.
    • Holan has a more traditional 8-sided case design versus the 4-sided BUMOT design. You don't lose any capacity with the BUMOT cases due to notched corners, but some people prefer the aesthetics of the 8-sided design. The BUMOT cases have almost a "hot rod" look....very clean lines, minimal add-ons, beautiful finish work.
    • Holan has a full stainless steel reinforcement rib between the mounting points on the back of the case, which adds additional strength and prevents the case wall from tearing or punching through. No one else on the market offers this.
    Net-net, it's like trying to decide which is your favorite child. :D From a function and usability perspective, you can't go wrong with either, it largely comes down to what options and/or aesthetics are most important to you. These systems both easily compete and surpass some of the better known offerings in the market and I continue to get positive feedback from both BUMOT and Holan customers on the quality and construction.

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks!
