I just purchased a Super Tenere last week and needed a luggage system. After giving a prolonged though, I went ahead an ordered my second set of cases from Caribou. I just can't reason purchasing an aluminum set. My last setup came installed on a new-used Vee while I still living in Colorado. The system held up great for almost 4 years while I owned the bike. The cases also helped save my bike from extensive damage when I was cut-off in traffic. A truck went to make a turn at the last second so I swerved and avoided a collision but ended up highsiding the bike. The bike landed flat on it's left side, causing the case to crack and shatter a chunk off. The only damage was the case and a heavy scrape on the fairing near the headlight. Imagine what the aluminum cases would've looked like after nearly 600 lbs. landing on it. After the compensation, I just purchased a new case from Caribou and was good to go. I've lost track how many times the cases have helped prop the bike from a dump. In most cases, the only thing needing a tweak after a drop was the compression latch tab. A few whacks with a mallet and it was good as new. The only thing I have to gripe about (and it's not about Caribou) is I wish Pelican offered more top loading case that are simple and not so robust like the 36L (similar to a rackmount but much slimmer and only opens from one side). Just a simple tub, lid, and lid latches. No need for rollers, strengthening gussets, or extra handles. On long trips, side loading gets old, fast. If it's just a weekend thing, I could care less. Loading groceries becomes a challenge at times when you're loading the side stand side. However, for the price, quality, Pelican case warranty, etc. you can't beat this system. Well, I do have one, small thing to gripe about with the Caribous. Over time the lanyards may brake. But, I could care less. A few bucks at Lowes for some braided steel cable, crimps, nuts, bolts, and a half hour of time will fix it. I had actually customized the lengths on the Vee that when the lids opened, they were level to the ground (providing the bike was on the side stand). Therefore, they acted as a tray while they were open. Again, hardly a gripe. I think I just abuse them more than I should, lol.
