I would toss this up, used my Pelican Case from Caribou to mount my Rotopax. The jug isn't kept up there all the time, just on long rides since I think I can notice the additional weight up that high. Opening the case while the jug is on isn't too bad and I usually don't need to too often since I will keep needed items in the tank bag.

Is that Pelican a 1520?

Looks mighty good, Roger! Thanks!







Just the right size for me and the 800XC.

Installation took about 45 minutes and that included drilling out one hole (the left bag forward lower hole was off about 1/16" - right bag was perfect. No big deal at all but I thought I would mention it.)

Pissed

I just had the weirdest experience - I've ordered a top case from Caribou cases and it has been held up on customs for two weeks week. After much badgering of the people in customs, I just found out that the hold-up is due to a single problem with the documents that came with the top case, and immediately proceeded to e-mail their sales contact.

I've received no reply yet (well, only 2 and a half hours have passed since their opening hours), but when I tried calling them I got this messages stating "This number does not accept unidentified callers. If you are a solicitor, hang up now" WHAT.THE.F***K?

I'm calling from abroad (hence the stupid machine thinking I'm unidentified), and I'm getting rather pissed at this, since I am not at fault here.

Can anyone shed some light on this? I have other, less agreeable options available to sort this thing out if I can't get in touch with them so they sort their mess out.

Hello,

You can email me at roger@cariboucases.com (I just emailed to you). I'll do what I can to help. Not sure why your call did not come through, we have no blocks on international calls.

If anyone else has had some problems sending emails to caribou please let me know. Everything seems to be working right, but who knows what I missed. The Chinese spam is certainly coming through just fine:)

It's been an incredibly hectic week, so my apologies to Roger for the late reply. He sorted everything out, I finally got my case on the past Thursday, assembled it last week and I'm very impressed.

It went together perfectly, looks and feels extremely tough. I'd take pictures of it, but it's pouring outside.

Here are a few photos of my Caribou-equipped KLR in an urban setting.

I took my first overnight trip two weekends ago using my new Caribou saddlebags. The 3-day trip was almost all mountain riding and covered roads in North Carolina, Tennessee and South Carolina. It featured dirt/gravel fire roads and some great, tight technical twisty pavement. We even had the pavement disappear on us without warning up in the mountains when the road suddenly turned to gravel.

I had my Caribou bags loaded down with all of the travel essentials -- rain suit, rain gloves, tools, first aid kit, digital camera, GoPro camera and mounts, iPad, cigars/cutter/lighter, water, etc. I carried my clothes in a submersible bag up on the rear rack and used the Caribou bags for all of the heavy and expensive items.

The Caribou bags worked great and I never had to worry about any of the expensive items going missing when we stopped for breaks. Here's another close-up shot of my 35-liter Caribou Pelican Storm saddlebag mounted on my 2013 Kawasaki KLR 650.



Thank you for making such great bags!

Numa

Thanks for all the photos and taking the time to do the write-up BlueRidge. Nice looking KLR!
