Just wanted to let you know (like all the others...LOL) how pleased I am with my products from Caribou.....before my cases arrived I was worried that I should have gotten the smaller cases but after mounting them (packing them) and a trip to Colorado last week I'm thoroughly pleased with the racks, 40 liter side cases and liners.....all top quality and my buying experience from Caribou was almost perfect....there was a couple piece was missing in the package when it arrived but I was amazed how quickly you rectified the problem and shipped me the piece immediately..."thank you".....the only other problem was the fact that mounting the rack to the upper foot peg bolt (left side) conflicted with my "Happy Trails" lift handle I installed when I installed a "Happy Trails" center stand.....might want to make note of that if you weren't aware of it......I just had to remove the lift handle to install the rack on the left side of my '08 KLR......I am totally satisfied with their ruggedness, roominess and the ease of installation (for the most part, do your ears ring often...LOL). I think my KLR looks pretty cool and so functional, now that I've completed most of the mods......(see a few pics attached) in the pics I have removed my large tail bag and re-installed the smaller factory tail bag cause it holds my helmet on these nice warm evenings when I just want to feel the air on my old!!! I've grown to really like the KLR although I'm more used to liter bikes with much more does what it's designed for.....and pretty's some pics of my KLR showing the close-up of why I had to remove my HT's lift handle and also my addition of a couple tractor manual / tool tube / x-tra water / x-tra fuel bottle containers I mounted onto my panniers.....they work great for any combination of what is needed for any given ride or environment......if more water might be needed or maybe more x-tra fuel......load accordingly.....maybe some body else might find them pretty cool....and very handy !!

Again....thanks for a great product and your great service !!!
