Hey all, so thought I would share how I attached a bigger 1620 Pelican case to my 2019 VStrom. It looks good, I was worried it might look obscenely big but it looks about how the bigger Givi outback looks. Cheaper, too, and most likely more durable. I chose the 1620 because I will be taking the case off a lot since it will be holding clothes and suitcase type items, and the 1620 had a telescoping handle which I managed to keep attached and functional by using longer 40mm bolts, vs the stock ~15mm bolts they provided with the Caribou mounts. I used loktite on everything and it feels very sturdy, I will update if there is any issues I run into. It won't be carrying anything heavy, just some clothes, and an extra pair of shoes, maybe some school supplies.
