Top and Side Cases

I had planned on installing Pelicans because they saved my Wee's bacon during at least three falls in the driveway. Serious unabated falls. The bike just plain flopped over onto cement unhindered. The Pelicans prevented any serious damage to the bike and you had to look hard to find any evidence of the falls on the Pelicans.

However, two days ago I saw this.....




While they may not protect the bike like the Pelicans, maybe I'll be more careful with the new bike.

Does anyone have experience with the SH48 top case and the new SH36 side cases?

Nice look to em but like you, Pelicans have protected my bike and legs on more than one gravel drop.

Rick, from that one pic, it appears the sidecases protrude up higher than the passenger seat level?? If one has a big-azz duffle bag strapped on back there, would it not rest on the two sidecases, not the seat portion?? (I may be missing something....)

I like the look of these Shad panniers. Contacted Shad and am awaiting a response. Looks like a simple but effective set up.

I just today became a dealer for Shad products (Obviously I really liked the looks of those bags).

Do they do racks as well or just bags?

Rick,
I sent you a request via your website, just a head's up. The Shad video is very convincing, and FWIW, webbikworld did a review of the Shad products and loved them.

It seems that you have forgotten to arrange a percentage of the profits that you make from selling these to come to me, seeing as you are using the information on my blog to sell from

I have been forced to remove the information from my blog in the meantime, sorry to anyone interested in wanting to know about this product.

My blog is a personal hobby blog, set up to share my riding adventures and to share news about accessories available for V-Stroms. It is not affiliated with any vendors or advertisers and costs me money per year to host the hundreds of images and to maintain the blog, not to mention the time and effort.

Sorry Zed,

I was trying to give credit to your site for the pic and information.

Your site is so informative, well written, and well executed I thought it must have been done for a larger audience with the intent on sharing information with the community. Feel free to take 10% of your next order of Adventuretech products as support for the site. Seriously, it's extremely well done and an asset to the community.

I saved the image and then posted it to vsari. The photo is now supported by VSARIs bandwidth.

Rick
