Globeriders F800GS Instructional DVD

For those considering different pannier systems, the new Globeriders F800GS Instructional DVD includes a detailed look at Maddaddy's Hepco Becker Gobi's, my Metal Mules, two sizes of Jesse bags, both BMW Adventure and Vario bags, and the new TT Zega Pros. (No Caribous or Happy Trails, but not by design. No one who could make it happened to have them.)

Gobi Width

Good call on the Globeriders video. I have been doing exactly what you suggest. Going through the video and looking at all of the details for pannier construction and mounting. Very good comparison video. It would be nice to fill in the above table with the Gobi details.

If anyone has the Gobi's mounted on the F800GS could you please post the width?

Thanks,
jim

Jesse bag installation

I just installed my Jesse bags on my 800GS, and I noticed a SLIGHT amount of "play" in the exhaust. I cannot recall if the small amount of movement was there prior to installation. The bolt cannot be tightened. Has anyone experienced the same issue? And, if so, was it as simple as adding a thick washer, or something similar.

You could slow cook your dinner in the left pannier though.

It rather looks like you have strapped a laundry to the bike ...

Hey Red,
Yes, I have their exhaust as that is the only one I knew for sure works. The clearance comes from a change in the inlet pipe and removal of that metal spacer bushing. I suspect another company's can may work, but you would want to get exact measurements, because it's pretty tight. The fit and finish was very good. I had no issues with the install and was really happy the bags fit on, close enough for me. (I had them mounted at a specific angle on my LC4, not centered...)

Robhar54 did a good review with great pics here:

Sorry all. I went radio silent for about 5 months there. Don't know what happened, but I just woke up and it was July.

I like the PacSafe for everyday commuting as it's easy to put stuff in. Locking it is a pain, though. So if you don't need to lock it frequently, then it's a great lightweight easy to use option. One thing, they fade FAST. Mine went from black to a muted brown in a few years. But I ride every day and they bike sits in the sun at work. Third bike I've had it on. I've probably locked it only 15-20 times, but otherwise I'm pleased. If you want easy locking, get a vario or the adventure aluminum one with same key. Or the CooCase has a nifty remote control. But it's looks a little gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Here's what I'm looking for in a bag for an upcoming trip to central/america this spring, don't want a hard case but I'm picky, maybe you can tell me if this is what I want. I want something that can both be locked down while I'm dealing with crossing intl borders and customs so I don't have to worry about pilferers BUT something that I can also easily detach to bring inside hotel rooms with me on a nightly basis that will have my most valuables kept in it...

Just a quick note on the Jesse cases, I dropped the bike (low speed) twice on monday (first time my fault, second time hit by a car) and the bike and cases are in mint condition. (stupid car, at least he was nice enough to get out and help me pick it back up)

Another option for mounting Pelican cases...

I just got back from the BMW Rally and Twisted Throttle was showing off a new product that is a set of brackets that will allow mounting of Pelican cases to Givi and SW-Motech frames.

Very nicely executed, they do lock and look strong enough....

Alas, at $165 for a pair I would not say they are a "price leader"....
but considering the amount of time it would take to create a set of one-offs in the garage that lock ... it might not be too bad a deal.......

Thanks for that, JR. They're cheaper than Caribou's DIY mount kit. But then the Caribou kit comes keyed the same as the cases. Life's full of trade-offs.
