With this last shipment, we're sending the locks along with panniers uninstalled, in a baggie as opposed to preinstalled. This allows us to better manage stock of locks, and ensure folks get matching ones when needed. A few people have contacted us about how to install them, and where the arm position should be. I've taken the following two pictures to help!

The first picture shows the rear of the lock in the unlocked position. Note the angle of the arm, and how the retaining clip is installed:




The second picture shows where the arm should be when it's in the locked position. It points DOWNWARD, toward the latch release button on the bottom of the lock.

Pre-Drilled Panniers?

Hey Rob,

Any idea when the rest of the Pre-Drilled Panniers will ship out? I'm hoping to have them for a trip on August 24th. I received my top bag a few days ago and the build quality is incredible! I really have to thank you for going through the trouble of importing these into the US!

Tiger 800 sets should be shipping today. F800GS and R1200GS sets should be shipping before the end of the week.

I'm still going back and forth and I'm curious about something. This is from the advdepot.com website:

Quote:
45L Special Kit - 86L Total Volume - Width 980MM
35L Special Kit - 66L Total Volume - Width 900MM
But how is that possible if the 45L pannier is 280mm and the 35L is 220mm wide? That would mean there is 120mm difference between the two sets, not 80mm.

And I assumed here that the "normal" 35L and 45L panniers are the same width as the "special" notched set (at least at the top).

Well, crap. I confused the numbers with the 27 to 35L difference. Your calculations are correct.

The main question now is: which number is correct? 900mm for the 35L or 980mm for the 45L?

Okay, that's helpful. So 100% certain it's not the 45L. Man, on my Camhead I had 74L capacity in 825mm width. It's just crazy that manufacturers aren't a bit more creative about getting the width down while still retaining capacity.

But okay. Looks like I'll go with the 35L setup if there isn't anything showing up on the market in the next few days ...

My GlobeScouts arrived last night

So happy with the build quality and construction of these as well as the drilling that was done prior to shipment...perfect fit, nice and snug. The cases are beautiful, the latches and locks work flawlessly, and install was a piece of cake. The inner bags are very nicely made as well. Beautiful craftsmanship from GlobeScout everywhere here. Thanks so much Rob!

Totally psyched that I finally get to use that! As of right now, all stock has been updated on the site, and I'm trilled to be able to announce that most sizes and finishes are in stock, ready for immediate shipment. There is limited stock until next month, so I'd suggest getting them while they're here! What's *not* available yet:
  • Special kits for the R1200GS
  • 40L topcases in Natural
  • Topcase nets
  • 40L liners

Everything else is ready to go!


Additionally, have you signed up for the Globescout newsletter? I'll have a large announcement next week with a new product launch and an update about the future of GlobeScout in North America.

Bags Shipped?

Hey Rob - I'm getting worried that I'm not going to have my bags in time for this weekend. I see a number of other members have already received their drilled Tiger panniers. Any idea if they shipped out already? I haven't seen anything in my e-mail. Order #700000392.

Thanks!
