I really like this system! If you need someone to test a setup for the 1200GS let me know.

I can be your Wee-Strom Guinea Pig...looks really good. I really like the cases, and mounting looks solid as anything I've seen. Great work. I currently use GIVI, but can e-bay 'em for bigger stuff.

Nicely done. Another vote for DL650 racks, since I see one of these in my immediate future.

Very nice work!

Couple of questions:

How do the cases themselves compare, weight-wise, to the System cases? A comparably sized aluminium pannier?

Also, does Pelican make any top-opening cases? (similar to those KTM 950 cases)

Thanks. I'll be looking you up when I get my KLR 6-fiddy.

How about racks for the 640? I haven't been able to find a bag system I really like for that bike (at least not one that's reasonably priced).

What about the Old Skool Airheads?

Nice job, any plans to expand your market to include us R100GS/PD riders?

I have a DL650K5 and I'm definitely in the market for these.

I would want to know how wide they will be (want 37"-38" or under). Also would probably want to see a picture of the system with bags on and off of a DL650 before buying.

If you have any guess as to when they might become available I'd love to know that.

Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement and the positive feedback. Much needed and appreciated.

I'll answer a few of the questions:
Mnrow on V-Strom timing - Looks like Feb/March timeframe. I don't want to rush the racks, it takes a bit of time to get them exactly right.

Soloyoh on the Ulysses, Airhead on KTM 640, Blackhoof on R100 - I learned some hard lessons in this business doing the exhaust sytems, and one of them was to concentrate on the largest markets. I would not survive unless I got the BMW GS's, KLR and V-stroms done. The KTM 640 and Suzuski DRZ may get done eventually. Beleive me, it is not the money, but I do have to pay the bills.

PackMule on weight comparison - One BMW case weighs 10lb 3oz. One of my Pelican Caribou cases with the bracket and locks weighs 12lb 13oz. A little more weight but a lot more strength and durability.

On the top cases, here are a couple of concept pics to give you an idea of what the 1550 looks like....

Regular top case 1550

And Dave, Dinosaur was really spactacular, check out this photo...look near the top and get a perspective of how deep in the ground this canyon is I am riding in, that is not the sky, the sky is way up higher.
