Pelican cases or spring for jesses?

I just bought a '10 800GS that's stock. Which side cases would you recommend and where's the best deal? Thanks

You can find all kinds of reasons on this blog to buy almost any of the better cases.

FWIW I bought Jessie's because they have a superior mounting system, their cases mount much narrower than any of the other cases for the same case volume and they are tough.

In the end choosing the right case depend on how you want to ride and how much you want to spend.

Have fun

Jesse's Rock!!!

I bought my Jesse Luggage in 2009 I love it, it has stood up to daily commuting use, touring and been down the Dempster without a problem. Tough and sexy just the way I like em.....

Pelicans are nice in that they bounce well,dont cost an arm and a leg,are easily lockable,then they dont make noise when I drag em on the road in corners.

They just dont look as bitchin as shiny alu boxes.

SW Motec EVO racks and Pelican cases. The cases break for whatever reason and you take off your hardware and take your case to a pelican dealer and you get a new one, no questions asked. That's a great warranty. Go to an RV dealer and buy a 4 pack of dumbell style locks for shogun style camper truck attachments. $85 for four, all keyed the same. Solid, and no rattles.

My SW Motec rack, cases, locks, cost me about $750 in total. The racks are bomb proof

Blog? How often do you anticipate crashing? The plastic System Cases on my old GS outlived the bike. I sold them after my totaled GS went to the salvage yard. They just popped off in the accident.

I'm looking for sturdy, waterproof, long lasting side cases that look BA. How often do you anticipate crashing? I have no such plans.
