My question about the Pelican case and luggage rack is two parts really.
1. What rack and Pelican?
2. Can the padding inside a Pelican case absorb enough of the bouncing and vibrations associated with riding offroad and protect my gear?

I know the suspension on these bikes make this smoother for the rider, but how much does the rack and case bounce around?
I'd be looking to haul around a full body DSLR, 1 maybe 2 lenses, and some other small stuff.
Pelican 1500 case should be adequate and I believe comes with foam.

Look at http://www.pmracks.com. Their stuff is nice and I ordered a set for myself.

I can't comment on the bouncing, but a pelican with the foam should provide enough protection for camera gear.

Good luck.
