    Got the PM and responded. Individual panniers are between $300 - $350 each depending on finish.

    Top cases are live on the site - starting at $299! http://advdepot.com/globescout.html?cat=1227

    Top case mounts for the following motorcycles will go live later this week:

    • R1200GS & R1200GS Adventure - two different mounts
    • F800GS / F700GS / F650GS Twin
    • Tiger 800
    • Super Tenere
    • KTM 990
    • R1150GS (via special order)

    You can get a great view of both the 27L and 40L in the following Globescout video:

    Awesome! Will there be any promos / package deals for the top cases w/ mounts, locks, etc..?

    Also, is the 'mount' the part that attaches to the bottom of the case, or the 'rack' that would attach to the bike?

    Good question regarding a package deal on the topcase - I'll look into it.

    Pannier terminology seems to vary per manufacturer. Here is how it breaks down for us:
    • Racks - The metal frame that attaches to the motorcycle.
    • Mounts / Mounting Kit - The metal 'pucks' that allow the box to attach to the rack. These bolt to the box fit between the loop (or square) of the racks and have an arm that wraps around the opposite side of the loop to keep the box on the rack.
    • Pannier - The box itself. These are often called saddlebags.

    Does that help?

    Yep, it helps. Just trying to figure out the bottom line on these. So the cost of the top cases on the site are for the case itself, and we would still have to factor in the cost of the mount (that attaches to the box), locks, a bike-specific rack, and whatever other accessories (inner bag, etc..) we'd like for a complete set up.

    Hi Rob,

    The panniers look great. I just signed up for the newsletter as I'm in the market for a set of panniers so it's serendipitous that I ran across this post.:D

    One question though... On your website you list the Globescout Worldclass Pannier kit for the GS as including a frame for mounting. Is this frame one of your own manufacture or is it the SW-Motech or HB frame that is listed in the motorcycle specific section?

    Thanks. Hopefully I will still get the $100 off coupon.

    Regards,

    I've gone ahead and setup a top case kit. The price for everything - mount, locks, topcase, etc. is just north of $400, all in. Some bikes are a bit more more because the mount is a bit complicated. The kit is on the top case page here:

    http://advdepot.com/globescout.html?cat=1227

    and all of the mounts (pictures, pricing, etc.) are now online too here:

    http://advdepot.com/globescout.html?cat=1226


    It all depends on the motorcycle. The majority are setup to specifically use the HB frame. We had the option of using the HB frame. We've sold many (many, many...) of both over the last few years and the HB frames tend to be closer in toward the motorcycle and more resilient the the SW setup. It's a little more difficult for us to pre-drill for, but totally worth it.

    Going forward, the plan is to manufacturer a Globescout frame. The R1200GS is first due to overall sales volume. We'll have a frame for the 05-12 R1200GS this summer, and planning for a 2013 R1200GS frame has already started (no ETA). The Globescout frames will allow a notched pannier when the boxes need to be closer to the center of the motorcycle.


    You haven't missed the $100 off coupon. It's going to be sent (most likely) toward the end of the week when the pannier pallets get on the boat steaming toward the USA. :D

    Hello!

    Do you know if Globescout will have a pannier system with an cut out for the exhaust for the new BMW 1200 GS LC?

    And will the racks be made in stainless steel?

    If so, when will it be on the market do you think?

    They really look good, surprisingly similar to the BMW/Touratech panniers (not a bad thing I'd say).

    We will be glad to take your money! :lol3 We want to have a firm delivery date before doing so. As recently as three days ago, we were told to expect them to ship on 3/22. As soon as we get shipment trace-ability, we'll open up pre-ordering.


    I'm not sure what you're referring to by 'BMW 1200 GS LC' - can you please clarify?

    Any R1200GS or R1200GS Adventure from 05-12 (or 2013 R1200GSA) can use the OEM adventure pannier rack, which is stainless, and does have a notch for the exhaust. Just keep in mind that this is the pannier rack for the ADVENTURE line of panniers, not the VARIO line -- they are very, very different.

    Why, thank ya! We were pretty thrilled with them when they arrived. They significantly exceeded our expectations.


    Thanks! They do look somewhat similar - in reality there is only so much you can do with a metal case. That said, the dimensions, latch , lid surround, and of course the branding on side are all different. If you were to see them side-by-side you could clearly tell them apart. The Globescouts looks much more impressive! :rofl

    An 2013 Watercooled R1200GS notched system is currently not available and has not progressed past the discussion phase. I've expressed interest in getting one created, but there is no ETA on it.

    There WILL be a non-notched system available in mid-April. Racks will be available in either OEM silver or black powdercoat.

    You guys are gonna live these panniers. I get so many compliments on mine and people ask if they're stainless steel because they will match your stainless appliances :) The 1200GSA set is the best deal going for a quality, durable pannier set that looks OEM. I've already noticed that these don't show boot scuffs as much as the BMW Adventure panniers do. I imagine its because of the clear anodizing.

    Are the natural looking ones anodized? Also is there any venting like BMW is putting on their cases now? Good looking cased for sure.

    Where did you find "clear anodized" mentioned? Globescout website only says "natural" and that's the reason why the black ones which are anodized are priced higher than natural ones. :confused:

    Hmm, I just checked Globescout's website and didn't see anything about clear anodizing. I thought they were clear anodized unless I'm confusing them with Holan panniers. Perhaps Rob can chime in. Mine definitely have some type of coating or protection that touratech Zega natural and BMW Adventure panniers don't have. I don't get any black rub marks liters inside them like the BMW ones did and I don't get boot scuffs on the top of mine, either
