Luggage.....Who's using what luggage ?

Just thought I'd try my first post .......
The luggage I was able to obtain second hand for the DL1000 was a set of Jesse Odyssey 47ltr hard cases and mounts for $700 pretty good value for quality gear and in great condition....
Just wondering who uses what

Tusk brand medium side cases from Rock Mountain ATV/MC on Moose Racing mount with an MMG top box from Amazon. Cases $224, top case $88, mount was on the bike when I got it with Pelican side cases. Got tired of the side open.

When did you buy the Tusk cases? I did not see them on RM ATV/MC's website, nor did I see them on Tusk's.

Thanks.

I am running SW Motech Trax side cases and top box, over 8 years now. 45L on the left and 37L on the right. Mounted with the Quick-Lock EVO racks. And a 38L top case.

I have two sets....



A set of knockoff Pelicans I bought back in 2013 (I think) from an electronics supply house, and...



An old set of Nelson Rigg soft bags that I bought in 2012. I think they're CL-800's, no longer being made. I adapted the soft bags to attach to a set of packboards, so they can hard-mount to my pannier racks. Both sets began their lives on my V-Strom, and transferred over to my Yamaha. The knockoff Pelicans have about 70,000 miles on them between the two bikes, and still going strong....

I don't believe in side cases especially hard paniers. I'm running Givi XS307 tank bag and a Moose Racing tall tail case. I have all the room I need behind me for strapped waterproof packs on the passenger seat.

Were they hard to mount up to those racks? I am interested in getting a set of Tusk Luggage for my bike but I was not sure how to mount them up. Thanks
