Default Template for mounting Pelican Cases with Twisted Throttle Mounts & Givi Racks Vee?

Are there any kind of pics or patterns out there of a preferred mounting position for Pelican Cases with Twisted Throttle Mounts and Givi Racks?

They come undrilled and I would really like to learn from others success (or mistakes!) so i get it right the first time!

Thanks,
Vincent

I had to dig back to September 2007 to find some photos that I put together. What you will see below is, a set of Pelican 1550 cases mounted to a set of "old style" SW-Motech racks. The secret is, you want to keep the cases up just as high as you can get them, (So that you won't nick the corners of the cases when laying the bike over in tight turns. And, so that a possible passenger will have enough leg room in front of cases to use the passenger footpegs.)

Here are the measurements that I worked out on my own and used.








(Jeepers! I can't believe that my bike once looked that ugly!)

I mounted some Sea Horse cases on the Suzuki frames. I just held up the bag to where I like it and put a pencil mark through the factory mount holes and drilled away. I bolted mine on pernamently.
Some guys have done a quick release arrangement that is a bit better than mine.
There are pics if you do a search of saddle bag mounts.
