Agreed with RCinNC. I too was going to go the ammo can route but they are just so heavy it was not feasible I did end up with Happy Trails SU racks for my DR650 then when I bought another set when I bought my DL660. The nice thing was the paniers could be swapped to either rack w/o modification and the luggage mount on all SU racks are the same.
I originally used Pelican 1550 but now HF has come out with their Apache 4800 series X-large case for $48 per if you use the always available 20% coupon. For less than $350 (this is cheap for a quality setup) you can be set up with greats pannier racks that are top shelf quality and decent panniers at a probably 25 to 30 pound weight savings.
here is a website that shows what they look like. Thanks for the kind offer but I am in Canada. I appreciate the offer though.
i would graciously take you up on that offer!!!here is a website that shows what they look like
I would be willing to ship the brackets with the mounting hardware (minus the ammo cans because of shipping cost) if it makes sense and you cover shipping
