    I don't run the show anymore, but I'd be happy to answer your question as I'm here today.

    The answer, at least for the time being, is no. The SW racks are constructed of a pressed tube as opposed to a standard round tube. They won't go on an off easily, so it's not officially supported. Theoretically, you could probably make it work, but you're on your own when it comes to that.


    BTW, GlobeScouts are on sale for the next few days. This came in the email today:

    Emails says deal expired at midnight Sunday and prior sales excluded. I'm pretty sure they're closed today, btw.

    Just ordered one with the black Friday special discount. Was told is going to take a month and a half. Hopefully they're going to be right this time. But a great deal.

    Looks like the sale ends tonight. From what I've been told, most items are available for immediate shipment. The 'special' sets still have a list.

    I sent a message through the website a couple of days ago I haven't heard anything back yet so I thought I'd try here as well.

    I was wondering what the lead time is on the top box kits black 40l for Triumph Tiger 800 with inner bag and cargo net.

    Paul (the guys who runs the show now) is a good friend of mine - we've known each other for 20+ years. I'd say it's highly probable that I'll be periodically involved to some degree. That said, I've sold the company to the man who employs Paul, so I wouldn't consider it a sure thing.

    I just looked at the queue, and there are practically no outstanding tickets. Can you let me know what your ticket number is so I can look into it for you? I've alerted Paul to your post as he hasn't been logging on here regularly primarily due to the move.

    I'm not sure that I got a ticket number. I am away at the moment I will check my computer when I get home. Should I have gotten an email with the ticket number?

    Yup, yes sir. If you email in, or log a ticket via the online chat or contact us page on the site, it immediately logs it an emails you back with a ticket number. This make sure that the guys get back with absolutely everyone. I put it in place about 3 years or so ago when the shop became so busy I couldn't answer all of the emails myself.

    :deal


    If I could, I would answer your question myself. Unfortunately, I know zippo when it comes to stock level anymore.

    I never got an email so maybe the message didn't go through properly. It did come up saying the message was sent. I will try again.

    Email ticket from today replied to, and I apologize if any messages were missed or not received.

    I must add, thank you to everyone for reaching out to us interested in our fantastic Globescout luggage. I will be catching up with everyone regarding any backorders and questions regarding availability. We have another large order in place as well as strong sales history after our first season importing directly from Globescout to help increase our fill rate and stocking levels. Our order is currently in production, and when close to being complete, we will have a more accurate shipping time.

    After moving to our new location, and helping Rob clean out the "old" Motorcycleinsight building, we are getting settled in and ready to move forward. Some inventory still needs organized, but everything is accounted for and orders are being processed quickly.

    I will be honest, the change of location came to be a bit more drawn out than anticipated (our enclosed trailer was out for service after an "episode" and a tire locked up on a major highway, limiting us to our truck beds) which did keep me away from the phones and keeping up with the forum and PM's.

    If anyone has called, emailed, sent letters or telegraphed, and does not feel that we have received your message please email me directly: paul @ lmcyclesupplies dot com and I will reply back as quickly as possible.

    Thank you,
    -Paul

    As Rob has replied, at the moment, we may not officially have a dedicated mount for the SW Motech racks, however we are working on different mounting designs that may work on other rack systems. Globescout has been very busy in their 3D design department, and once made official, we will quickly share all new products and designs!

    Thank you,

    Thank you!

    I see that the mount racks that come with the kit is quickly removable, which is what I am looking for.

    Decisions, decisions.............

    Do the special fit kits for the R1200GS water cooled come in a quick detach configuration?

    When is the cut-off date for the next order?
    When is the expected arrival date?
    Is an inner bag for the 28L bag available yet?
