Hey Steve, try some of these links:

And recently I have had an email from Roger Pioszak who runs adventure-motorcycle.com and he tells me that he will have a DR version of his brilliant Rack system with Pelican cases by late March/April.
Hope this helps.

I have some Moto-Sport pannier racks and have Pelican 1520 cases mounted on them on my '05 DR650. A very nice and sturdy system.
