And how do you do at gas stations, have to remove everything?

How about a pic of the left side? Does the bag touch the exhaust? I'm not sure about covering the gas cap either. That would eventually peg my annoyance meter, I think.

Yeah, it covering the gas filler would annoy me pretty quick too I think. Also, one thing. I had the Wolfman Expedition Saddlebags for my KLR650. The rear side plastics where the bags drape over got very scuffed up from taking the bags on and off. Just a heads up. If you care about the plastics that these make contact with, you might want to consider some kind of protection for those plastics (if you even care). Gaffer's tape would work good.

I'm going to pick one of these up for sure. Makes a lot of sense to me for gnarlier trips where security isn't so much of an issue, like Continental Divide, TAT, OBDR--or local rallies. I might not use it for traveling to South America or Africa...but I'm not goin' those places any time soon. I started a thread on it, over here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=439071

Access to the gas tank could be an issue. I'll wait 'till I see it in person, and add a review to my thread.

Any good options for built-in lock on Pelican case?

I've mounted a Pelican box as my top case and will probably mount a pair for side cases as well, but am annoyed to have to use padlocks for locking them.

I think Caribou has a built-in lock modification they offer, but I've never seen it...

Has anybody had success installing a lock to a Pelican case?

Thanks,
Jim

Yes, Jim. When I ordered my side cases from Caribou, I also ordered a matching lock from them to fit to the smaller Hardigg iM2200 case I use as a top case. The lock was easy to install (measure twice, cut once), and a whole lot cleaner than a padlock. You can sort of see the lock in this picture.



There's a small post that fastens onto the lid. Locks tight, secure, and no leaks. I don't know if Roger at Caribou is willing to sell just the locks if you aren't also buying some other stuff from him, but there's no harm in asking, I suppose.

I will throw in a combo lock if I feel the need to lock my Pelican. I have tons of these Master 175's laying around.

Thanks guys!

I did a little legwork and from your picture I found that that type lock is called a "cam lock" ... I should be able to round some up locally!

Will BMW side cases mount to SW-M or H-B mounting brackets?

Does anybody know if the BMW side cases can be mounted to (or adapted for use) with the SW-M or H-B mounting brackets? These are second-hand cases so I don't need to keep them in pristine "BMW-esque" condition

I don't need side cases often, so the "quick release" features of the SW-M and H-B are very appealing!

thanks,
Jim

BMW on SW racks

Just bolt them to the racks any way you can since you can always take the racks themselves off and leave the cases attached to them.

Hey.................
I had not thought of THAT
So long as the cases don't "cover up" the quick-release fasteners ... and I don't think they would ... that works!

Thanks,
Jim

Happy Trail

I would like to hear from some of you guys that have been using your panniers for a while. I am particularly interested in Happy-Trail because of cost compared to others....Happy with them?
