    Meet Alberto and his new 2017 BMW F800GS. He is another happy local customer who decided to go with a 28L and 35L case set in Clear Anodized, mounted to SW Motech EVO side carriers using our unique EVO style mounts/adapters. Alberto is incredibly happy with our panniers, as though they are slimmer than the BMW Vario cases on his old F800GS, he can actually pack much more! The lid nets help him organize some of his smaller belongings.

    Looking to purchase a set of the black panniers for a 2016 GSA with the stock racks. Did you ever figure what tool boxes will work with the Globescouts and stock racks?

    It required fabbing up a small offset block, but I was able to get the GSEmotion box to mount up with the Globescouts. Somebody here did a write up with pictures. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll crawl out to the garage and show you what I rigged up.

    That's a great solution for fitting the Toolbox to work with our Globescout Panniers! Thanks for sharing! We are putting in requests (and asking you guys) for additional accessories from Globescout. Please share anything that you'd like to see in the future that we may be able to put in their design program!

    Does anyone have pictures of a 47L top case with a helmet in it? I am trying to figure out how much I can stash in there when parked. I would also love to see pictures of the 47L top case installed if anyone has them.

    (I read the entire 49 pages of this thread and have searched as well. My apologies if I missed anything in my research.)

    Thanks

    Thanks

    My full face helmet fits easily, large Schuberth. I think you could get a 12 pack of separate cans and the helmet with ease. I will try to remember to post pictures tomorrow.

    Upon further review...
    I thought I had the 47L Top Box but mine is the 40L. My Schuberth Large fits and there is a bit of room to spare; maybe not a 12 pack though. :1drink Good idea to make a box to test fit your helmet. The 47L Top box is about 0.6 inches shorter than the 40L. With the liner in mine the crown of the helmet is a bit above the edge. Closing it is no problem though due the shape of the lid.

    ^above is an XL Shoei Hornet in our Black Anodized 47L Topcase, with plenty of room to spare. Here's the same helmet in a 40L case:

    Paul, Thanks for the quick response. We spoke on Friday afternoon about cases for a Tiger 800. I think I am going to make up a fancy cardboard model to test the size.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who posts a 47L on their bike.

    New Matte Black Powder Coat Finish Available!

    Here's our first batch of R1200GS-A LC Panniers along with our 40L Topcase in our new Black Powder Coat finish. Starting now, and moving forward, black anodized cases will be replaced by the new powder coat finish, as it is more practical for scratch resistance on a black surface. This is only for the Matte Black cases. We are keeping the Clear Anodized finish as well as Natural/Bare Aluminum Finish.

    As beautiful as the black anodizing is, we have had production delays due to blemishes and pigmentation issues. In our original plans with Globescout, Anodizing was preferred as it does not add any weight to the material, and also does not add any thicknesses which may throw off tolerances during the assembly process. Now that there are newer, high-tech methods of applying powder coat in an even, smooth layer, Globescout is now able to use this process without any design changes. It is also great news that we are able to keep the new cases at the same price point as the anodized cases.

    We currently have the follow available in the new Black Powder Coat Finish:
    • R1200GS-Adventure LC Special Pannier System (Also fits standard R1200GS LC's with our own Globescout Special Pannier Racks. No need for the overly priced OEM retrofit)
    • 27L Topcase
    • 40L Topcase
    • Other's, including our standard individual panniers (28L, 35L, & 45L), 47L topcase, and KTM 1190/1290 and Honda Africa Twin Special Pannier Systems will initially trickle in before our next large stock shipment arrives.

    • BMW F800GS (F650GS & F700GS)
    • Triumph Tiger 800

    I think we're starting to have a bit of a photo contest for KTM 1190/1290's with our Globescout Special Pannier Systems. Here's a few from our newest KTM customer, Ben:
