Need advice on mounting luggage

I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to the Wee and its various luggage systems--the idea that you can mount Pelican cases (I use one for work!) to the back is unbelievable. Some of you guys have some great mods.

I've got some BMW cases from my old (sold) '04 R1150R that 4 years ago cost me close to $1grand just sittin around. Couldn't I somehow attach those to my '06 Wee? They're kinda bumpy on the bike-side, but holding them up, they look like they could work with some mods. Should I buy the SW motech racks and give it a whirl? (Then if they don't work, I could get some other cases). Is is just a matter of lining up and screwing some holes and bolting the bags to the rack? Would another rack system work better?

Also, I've got a Scorpion pipe--what will that do to the SW motech racks? Does it stick out further than stock?

Thanks for any advice
