BMW Airhead with Caribou Luggage

For you Old Skool folks, here are some pics of Caribou luggage on a 1994 BMW R100GS. Here we use Hepco Becker side luggage racks and our cases with our Caribou ALS lockable quick attach/release hardware, everything available from Caribou Luggage Systems (One-Stop Shopping and Support). No drilling or shaving plastic required, simple bolt-on system. Available for most BMW airheads. Note that the lead time on the Hepco Becker racks for these older bikes is 6 weeks, so plan ahead .

Caribou 35 Liter cases....








Caribou 36 Liter Top Loaders (right side with wheels/handles, left side with wheels/handles removed)...








Rack-Only, very close to the stock look....


Thank you!

Caribou Luggage on a Triumph Bonneville

Here's an example of the vast range of bikes that you can fit Caribou Luggage in a simple turn-key fashion (no drilling, no shaving cases, no figuring things out)...

Triumph Bonneville....




For this Triumph we used our 36L cases with our ALS attach system and Hepco Becker chrome side luggage racks. Strong, waterproof, and secure. Lots of storage space and they look pretty good too. With this kind of set-up you can have several different bikes for different types of riding and use the same set of cases

Just pulled the trigger for a set of top-load for my F800GS - can't wait to get 'em! Pictures once they are installed.

Here is a photo of the back of the top loading 36L case. Steel latch brackets with compression latch, polypro bushing material for contact surfaces...


Aircraft aluminum backing plate inside case for stability and strength...


Hardware kit....

I went to order the ALS kit today and can't seem to find it on the site. I swear I found it the other day.

Yes the DIY ALS kit for Hepco Becker racks was there and it will be back shortly. I had to work on the install instructions a bit to be certain people can drill their own cases properly. Call us Monday to order. Thank you.

Any chance the new top loading cases will be available for Monokey mounts?

I fitted a GiVi Wingrack 2 to my 1985 Nighthawk S. I have 2 very old/used 36L cases now that have seen much better days. I've been eyeing the Caribou replacements for several months and the top loaders would be great.

Sorry, our Top Loading cases fit the Hepco Becker racks only, the Givi racks will not work. Also note that only the Givi Monokey Racks (PL type) work with our luggage, we don't support the Wing Rack. Thank you.

What keeps the WingRack2 from working? The pegs are the in same place and the latch catch can be removed like the PL type can. I assumed that your replacement catch could bolt on in it's place.

The problem is where our latch plate replaces the Givi lug at the top of the wing rack. There is interference.

Thanks for the info. I guess a Caribou setup will have to wait until I replace the cb700sc. Bummer.

Questions:

1. What racks come with BM63 - BMW R1200GS Adventure Top Loading Side Luggage System?

Are they the Hepco Becker Racks or Caribou Racks?

2. Will the toolkit Case BMW9 work with BM63?

3. Do the inner bags fit the top loading cases?

Thanks,
Steve
