My trusty Pelican case has been on 3 bikes, and I was hoping that somehow the holes already present line up for the Dakar as well. But of course, that was not to be. One more hole was needed, and I reluctantly got out the drill and did the deed. Once on the bike, it did look like it always belonged there, so I was pleased with the results. This makes the bike ready for solo trips, but the mounting interferes with the passenger seat, so no two-up with the case on board. I will look at a more rearward mounting platform later tis summer…..
