    Thanks for the video. How far back do you have your bags? I can' tell from the video.

    I can't get my leg even close to the angle you have it when against the bag.

    That's odd, so are mine. The rear of the bags line up with the back of the mounting bracket. I guess the mounting hardware varies.

    Hey Thanks that is what I wanted to see. So what I'm doing wrong is using my left foot , easy without the case but it puts me too far away with the case on and I'm grabbing too high with my right hand.

    I also just sold the Trax cases , which put me even further from the bike.
    The Jesses are on order.

    I'll post my video when I get the bags.

    ..... I think the topic was acquiring Jesse cases for the f800gs. Now that we all know how to put our bikes up on the center stand, I have a follow up question;

    Can anyone fill us in on whether or not the new and improved 9" Safari II is available. I have pretty much settled on the Jesse's, AND I want the 9-inchers (not the 8"). In order to ensure I get them I am looking for a little inmate advice. I see some of you feel a little snookered and I don't want to go there.

    So, If I contact ExplorMoto is there a secret password or some phrase I need to use to get the new ones????? [​IMG][​IMG]

    ...I'll just phone 'em up and place my order. I'm assuming that price is for the bags plus racks.

    I asked for a price that included mounts but Rick's message didn't specify whether or not they were included. All the other prices include racks, so it probably does.

    I installed our Safaris on the weekend, fine bit of kit..... but!

    What were they thinking when they put 4 imperial bolts into the forward ring mounts. It's a metric bike and every other fastener on the panniers is metric, so now "just in case" I might need to tighten or loosen these bolts we are forced to carry a suitable imperial allen key which will never have any other use on the bike.

    What a silly idea, I am going to drill and re-tap them to a suitable metric size.

    I noticed the goofy allen size as 3/16th instead of something metric as well. Agree it was not a good decision.

    Regarding the 9" Safari's, they're not "officially out" yet, which is why they're not mentioned on the site or available in all colours yet. I imagine once production ramps up and there's decent stock available, they'll officially announce them. Everyone who already got them has a "preview" release. :D

    They look pretty good too! I ran into Wyldkard at our local BMW shop today and his 30th Anniversary Ed. F800GS looks awesome with the Jesse boxes.

    Nice meeting you and ride safe brother!
