The rear rack is nice, but is there a quick connect type mount for the topbox? I looked on your website and couldn't find anything.

Hi oz97tj - the Holan top case plate use a "bolt through" design. There are four allen head bolts with oversized washers inside the case that thread into the top case plate itself (shown in the pictures), with a reinforcement plate sandwiched between the case and the top case mount for extra support. Holan previously used a quick release mechanism on their top cases but had issues with it loosening up over time and rattling, so they moved to the bolt-through design. It takes an extra minute or two to remove the case, but the benefit is a secure fit with no annoying noises. Here's a picture of the Tiger 1200 plate for reference:




Any other questions, please let me know.

Thanks!

45 Litre Asymmetrical Gray

Finally got time to pick up and mount my set of cases. Very happy with the fit and finish of the (gray) side racks and panniers.

Serp, looks GREAT! Very nice setup...I can't wait to get that top case to you to complete the system.

Received a few more pictures from Holan of the Nomada Pro system on the new R1200GS LC. These are 38L panniers in natural aluminum, and show the 25L Photo top case mounted on the top case mounting plate that fits to the OEM rack.

Jason:

Will you ask them if they have a photo of the 25l top box showing the dry duffle bag from the front? I am wondering if the top box is mounted far enough back for the wife to use the dry bag as a back rest. I don't think the 25l alone would work as a back rest.

I have this narrowed down to the 38l bags. Just need to figure out whether to go top box or not.

You bet - I'll see if they have any other pictures they can send over. Comparing these and the pictures of the top case rack without a box mounted above, my guess is the dry bag would encroach on passenger space. It looks like it extends forward almost to the bend of the stock passenger grab handles, which would be about halfway on the passenger seat. You might be better off lashing the dry bag to the top of the 25L top case, which would give a bit taller surface to lean against and more room for the passenger.

Thanks!

Jason

I am interested in the Holan Nomada Pro 25l top case but I was wondering if there is enough room in the 25l top case to store a helmet like the Arai Tour X3...

Hi r1d3 - the 25L top case is a great case for holding a laptop, camera gear, and/or general commuting duty, but it's probably a bit too shallow to hold a full-face helmet. The dimensions of the 25L case are 15.7" L x 7.9" H x 12.6", so the lower height will probably be an issue. You can put a full-face helmet in the 29L top case (although it's snug and somewhat dependent on size/type), or a 38L will definitely hold one. The 29L top case can be seen here and the dimensions are 12.6" L x 11.5" H x 12.6" D. The 38L is shown here and the dimensions are 15.75" L x 11.8" H x 12.6" D.

Hope that helps - any other questions, please let me know?

Thanks!

I like the 25 litre because it doesnot look bulky. I will try measure my helmet so that I check if the helmet can fit if I turn it on one side...
The 25l does not look square like the 29 and the 38 ones look...I like the 25l better...
What is the price of the 25L and what are the shipping fees to Greece?
Thanks again.

We've got the same price for the 25L, 29L, and 38L - $249.99 in natural aluminum, or $284.99 for matte black or matte gray. I'm happy to give you price for international shipping, but you might be able to source it cheaper by going through the Greece distributor for Holan - www.motoraid.eu.

Any other questions, please let me know.

Thanks!
