Top Case for the 990
 
Hello,
I just got my adventure 990 about a month ago.
I have a few questions regarding it that I will ask with time I guess...

First,
Any recommended top cases for the bike?
Anyone knows http://www.globescout.de/ ??
Are they reliable? good? comfort?

Thanks,
A

Pelican 1500? I like that setup on my bike.

Is it enough?

Looks a bit small.
What fits in?

I just put the KTM adventure trunk on my 2012 and it has been a great bang for the buck. It's plastic but appears to be sturdy and I wanted one to be flat on top so that I can strap larger items to the outside.

I run the KTM/Shad case. It seems to be a great case for the money. Hopefully its waterproof...my ipad is sitting in it right now and its raining. :huh

This is the KTM part number: 60012027600

I paid $168 for it through my local KTM dealer

Pelican 1500
 
Here's a picture of the Pelican 1500 on the 950. It's not huge, but I like the size. I can put a 15" laptop in it and get to work. The side cases are Pelican 1550s.

First question is what do you want to carry? Do you want something big enough to store your helmet, groceries? I use a small Pelican Case (1450 IIRC), which works well for smaller loads.

SeaHorse 540
 
$45 for the case and $50 for the Hepco Becker Latch. Riveted the two together and I have a lockable quick release system. (my bike came with the mount HB mount)

I like the KTM Gobi top case but if you prefer aluminum, these guys make good product for decent prices: http://www.happy-trail.com/Products/...B10-12-47.aspx

I run my Gobi Topcase all the time. Its great, Solid, Weather proof, And it looks good.

aaronc76 04-16-2013 01:07 AM

Hello All,
Thanks for your inputs.

"el queso" is right, I didn't write what I need the case for.
The every day use is for my "working" bag which contains a Laptop, hard disk, charging cable, mouse and some extra sh*t in it. It is about 50X35X18 centimeters (highXwideXdeep) .
From time to time I would like to put some groceries from the supermarket.
Helmet and jacket for short terms parking.

I would like of course to have a "quick release" mechanism.
After taking out the case I want to have a flat rack that will fit my "riding" bag and traveling equipment.

On the last bike I had, Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré, I had a Givi rack + top case. It was very practical but the rack was not very useful without the top case.

I guess that ~40 Liters is my need, unless I will find a very wide case that will fit with my bag, but then my helmet would not fit in.
  • The pelican is very small and not fits my needs.
  • The KTM adventure and the Gobi (which looks very much the same to me) are a bit small for me. I tried them at my bike shop and it didn't fit my bag.
  • KTM/Shad Is the most practical, no doubt! An high ratio of money/value. However, I prefer an aluminium case.
  • Atlas has no photos or any info in their site.
  • Jesse luggage looks nice, I will try to find more about these guys.

Thanks!

For what its worth, the KTM top case seems to be waterproof. :rofl

I use the case for the same reasons you need a case. It works great.

Hi Aaronc,

I had Globescout 2x35 lt pannier and 45 lt topbox

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...0820-00723.jpg

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...0830-00002.jpg

It's excellent shape, looks very nice and high quality
Very stronger, very flashy

Topbox can fit a helmet and some little etc.
Side pannier can fit a your jacket but I'm not sure for your laptop bag

There is some information here
