Decent looking sport panniers worth considering

I would normally hate to hang a set of rear side cases off of this bike, but, this setup looks pretty trick!

Looks like twisted throttle will be carrying them soon:

A good friend of mine just got back from the dealer show in Indy and was telling me about these today, said they looked really good in person.

I like them, as much as I ride I need some places to throw stuff.

I noticed the junction in where the bag meets the cloth-over-the-seat strap that hold the panniers together. That's the same area where my BMW bag ate through the plastic fender on mine in 500 miles. Actually, it was the damn nylon buckle that destroyed my fender and required a putty-fill and repaint.

I dunno, but I would prefer some rig mounted off the passenger frame rail or something and stay away completely from the soft plastic BMW uses for a fender. Abrasion can be the pits.

I have had more damage caused by abrasion from accessories / tie-down straps than anything else. You would think manufacturers would soon get the point. If it touches my paint finish, I don't want it.

Bought a Pit-Bull trailer restraint for this exact reason.

Anything that touches the paint is like sand-paper, given enough time and vibration.

I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it!

Very interesting. That might come in handy for a Europe mainland trip. I do have the Kriega 20+10 option already though.

There is also the option coming out from"the cycle guys", it's saddlebags that attach on the rear peg mounts, it does not touch any plastic at all, I have been waiting on it to be finished since last summer.

I had a Bags Connection for my FZ1. They supplied a nice big sheet of thick clear protection film. My guess, they will ship that along with this set up also.

Now that's what I'm thinking about! No contact with the pricey plastic bodywork at all.

Better link: The Cycle Guys Online Store Might be a bit more secure with one more frame-mount point though rather than the foot-peg arm alone. We'll see what they come up with as it's too soon yet.
