    You think correctly, mine are the same but that's the way they design the frames and I can't complain about how securely they fit on the bike or the quality of the panniers.

    bought a set of Caribou Luggage for my 650 (basically peli cases complete with a mount system and locks) I've had to import them from the usa tho

    Total cost worked out at around £460 not including uk import tax

    I would have bought the ally ones but i prefer the look of the peli cases

    Hopefully they'll arrive sometime this week Tho i expect the touratech bits will take longer

    Thumbs up mini review - first impressions

    Well, got the last one today, they came in two separate boxes about a week apart thanks to customs

    Total cost was £461 for the luggage, the total import taxes were around £80, though around £30 of that was in charges form parcelfarce. That makes them more expensive than the touratech ally cases. Still, I’m happy, I really didn't like the mount shape on the touratech cases.

    Anyway, the whole kit looks very professional, all powder coated in black with full stainless fixings. More importantly it all fitted together without any problems at all.
    The instructions are very clear and easy to follow (unlike flat pack furniture) and I got the framework fitted and secured in place within 1/2 hour of starting. (Allow yourself about an hour if you’re mechanically inept ). I had to do some minor adjustments to the lower front mounts on each side as there was some misalignment. Once adjusted (it's stated in the instructions that this adjustment may be required) the cases go on and off smoothly and quickly, around ten seconds a side will see the case fitted and locked in position. Simply locate the cases on the rack and turn the key lock, all done from the outside. No faffing around inside the pannier - great for packing in the house then just chucking the cases on the bike.

    I'm quite happy with the whole setup, the framework looks good on the bike, it doesn't hang down into empty air unlike the touratech cases and it provides extra support at the back incase of a drop. The cases themselves look like they'll work well though they are side openers, perhaps unfortunately for some.

    I personally think they'll work better for me than top loaders, especially with the ease at which they can be taken off the bike. The cases themselves are very strong, they come with most of the bits like locks/ straps already fitted, I only had to mount the case brackets onto the cases. I can also report that the lid supports are strong, I had my jack Russell stood one on side, the dog is far to nosey for his own good )

    One last thing - security, the setup has 4 keylocks, all of which are keyed the same, two locks secure the cases to the rack in a clamp arrangement whilst the other two lock the cases so they cannot be opened. A good idea well executed, i only have to carry one extra key


    All in i reckon its a top bit of kit, though I haven't had time to get any pics or go for a spin yet. i'll do both tomorrow and let you know how i get on

    Did a bit of a test ride today (to and from work) only about 40 miles the long way, the cases don't seem to affect the bike at all, well impressed. Even had a guy on a yellow 1150gs do a double take (at the bottom of phoenix parkway in scunthorpe, just in case the person posts on here)

    Anyway, took a couple of piccys
