I just looked closer at the PackRat system. It isn't clear how the cases are attached to the bike and that is a detail people want to see. It is mentioned that the cases can be taken off in two minutes. That's fine if they are empty but it's a major pain if you have to take your stuff out of the boxes to loosen bolts.
On my trip I was carrying the clothing in my Pelicans. At the end of the day I removed them and we went into the motel and lived out of them. My son has a rack with Mermite boxes which are not easily removed. We carried our emergency parts and tools in them and wrapped cable locks around them for the night.
