    I have no complaints about my GlobeScouts. They are excellent panniers. The little water that I've gotten inside was from riding 9 hours in nearly underwater conditions. I had to keep lifting the bottom of my pinlock shield to let the water out. That's how wet it was.

    Yes! Actually I was just getting on the forum to post that the shipment is now Stateside! A little more time for customs clearance and our local delivery to us here in Pittsburgh, and we'll then be able to have orders turned around quickly!

    Customs Exams will now be expected with every shipment from Turkey for a while due to current events.

    Considering the exam, the shipment went through rather quickly however we're just working to get these in our hands to have all customer orders turned around ASAP.

    Everyone should be expecting status updates in the next couple days. Keep your inboxes open!

    Now Available for Pre-Order!

    We've been quite anxious to make the announcement, but the wait is now over. Globescout's beautiful "Special" Symmetrical design has finally made it to the new Honda Africa Twin!

    Based on Globescouts 45L panniers and using their own custom designed stainless steel side carriers, we have a complete kit, ready to bolt on, attach the cases, and go!

    The panniers are available in the usual flavors; Natural (bare), Clear Anodized, and Matte Black Anodized. Cost is in-line with our current systems for the R1200GS-W and KTM 1190 Adventure starting at $1,299.00 for Natural Finish. Our free shipping promo is also applicable to our Globescout kits for the first time ever, and we are also offering a pre-order special for this kit as well!

    When placing your order, use discount code GSPREORDER for $100 off your Pannier kit! Promo is valid through August 8th, as we will need to lock the remainder of our order in with Globescout for production.

    View our product page HERE!
    Our Topcase Kit is also now updated, as we also offer a specific Topcase Rack for the Africa Twin.

    PICTURES!

    Very shy on BMW R1200GS-W and GSA-W systems, but anyone who's interested please do not hesitate to contact me for details!

    We have our new 47L topcases in stock, which are an absolutely beautiful solution for anyone who wants to run with just a topbox only, or that needs the most cargo capacity possible. I will have more photos soon, but here it is just as a refresher:

    Paul, received my panniers and the mount for my top case. Love the quality and happy with the black anodized finish. Thanks for the help, answering my questions and recommendations. Attaching a couple pictures of the black on the new LC GSA as I could not find any pictures of that combo, nor with the 27 liter top case. Most I found had the natural or clear finish. Now have to get my foam from one of my pelican cases fit to the top case for my DSLR gear.
    Thanks again

    While mounting the topcase hardware, I dropped one of the spacers in here...

    After removing more stuff, I was finally able to get to it...

    What a huge pain in the ass. Oh well, it's done now.

    Hey guys,

    Great looking bikes! The Globescout cases compliment the GS's nicely, and glad you are happy with your purchases!

    Man those GSA's look good ;-)

    Natural finish is all we have left at the moment for the GSA. Our new order is currently in production, so please contact me if you'd like to put a backorder in for clear or black andodized; These have been selling out very quickly!
