    That just means you can't use a free shipping code if you are just buying that item - but if you add something to the order that doesn't have any exclusions, then you can.

    So if you bought just two cases and nothing else, then you can't use a free ship code (because no add'tl discounts), but if you bought two cases plus a small item for a few bucks, then you'd be able to get free shipping (because the small item doesn't have any restrictions).

    Free Shipping right now is on $75, which is a bummer if you only want one case.

    And for anyone thinking of ordering - there is a 4.99 large item surcharge, but when I picked expedited shipping (for like $7), it took the surcharge back off - so in the end I effectively paid only two bucks more to get it in two days - not a bad deal if it still works.

    My case is still going strong, painting the orange strip black makes it look lots better, and for Beemer guys - the small-sized stick-on logo from the dealer fits perfectly on top of the totally bitchin' Iron Cross.

    Just a quick update on how great this bargain box is. I already used it in Baja twice, both times with miles of very rough washboard, and it's holding up just fine. I have been using nylon strap around it just to keep it from bouncing up and down.

    The box has a little bit of play when installed on top plate, it could probably suffer some damage while going on rough roads, that is why I used the strap.

    Ordered it, got the discount, but upon shipping Canada customs rejected it, so JCWhitney agree to resend it and this time it got through. My credit card has been around the block on it - charged $48, credited $48, charged $86, refunded $18, and now another $6 refund is pending because they didn't ship the stretchy net with it. Oh well - customer support has been great through this hassle.
    Now it's installed on my '08 GSA and it looks good and my wife quite likes the support. Here's hoping she'll come riding now.:feelgood Even with the topcase off, the mount plate looks pretty good. The emblem isn't so bad, but I'll probably still rip it off and replace it with a BMW or ADV logo.
    I recently got a quote from a BMW dealer - $900+ for their topcase installed...:huh uhh, no, I think my $47 top case will be fine. :evil

    I just went through this process, and got it for the $62.96 after the $8.99 surcharge.

    I was considering one of the Coo' Cases boxes, with integrated lights & keyless entry, etc. This is a ridiculously cheap alternative. I'll try to beef up the mounting on my KLR to minimize vibration. I'm hoping that this case will last six months in Central America.


    Nice info, thanks!

    Maybe I'm missing it somewhere in here but does this work with the Medium sized cases as well? Want to order up two to use as sidecases.
