Luggage mounting frames

I want to put Pelican style waterproof side cases on my G310GS, but Iíve no idea on what frames they should be mounted!
Has anyone else had this combination on their GS?

I used SW-Motech SLC racks.

I really like those extra lights and how they have been mounted.
I am curious about the bar with the footrests. Why have your feet so far forward.

Tukemeister, the forward set of pegs is to allow me to stretch out on longer rides. It affords a change in hip and knee angle.



Routinely I will use all six (pillion pegs included) chopping and changing constantly. It helps on multiple 1600km days.


I've put them (and those lights) on a heap of bikes:

Is there such a thing as a universal top case plate that I can use to fix my pelican style top case to my rear rack? Apart from directly (and permanently) bolting your case to the rack, what other options do o have for mounting it??

That's a great idea. I feel the need to stretch out my legs after about 1.5-2hrs riding, and typically just stretch them out one at a time out the front without support.

I don't know about any universal plate. I just bolt them on. Usually 4 bolts is enough, so removing/refitting them is not difficult. The bags have holes in the edges to take padlocks etc.

Porth I also stand up on the rider or pillion pegs at least every half hour.

pelican cases seem to be very strong. in his website, they use mostly hepco becker side racks. but I had a very bad experience with the guy who runs the Pelican website. He is completely immature, or just an emotionally retarded man. so at the end, I used SW Motech system (in my Tiger) rather than dealing with that unprofessional fool.

as you love riding, you need to love you bike
