Lightweight pannier bags
on: 10 January, 2021, 01:27:22 PM
Just saw and admired these bike pannier bags:

They're meant for pushbikes rather than the motor kind, and so probably water resistant rather than waterproof, but I thought they looked pretty smart, and could do at a pinch on the bike.

I've no connection whatever with them.

Yes, they look good.. on a push bike.. :001:
You'd burn a hole in the R/H side one if you managed to fit them to the TS ...
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE, 2019 Tiger Sport .... got there in the end.

I was looking at these, they looked to be perfect for what I was after, until I realised how much extra hardware they need.
I believe you'll need the Givi rack kit, a pannier kit and Monokey kit as well as the panniers.

For the TS, looks like only the pannier rail kit needed, it comes with the fittings for the panniers.

Loads of Triumph panniers in lofts, like mine. Those harpoons got me too many times.

Yep, I see they come with the Monokey fittings. I think you still need the Givi rack though.
There's an extra cross piece that attaches to the rack.
From the Givi link:
'The PLR6404 Pannier Rack must be fitted in conjunction with a GIVI Top Case Rack.'

Needs checking out why, a diy bracket might do the job.

Alternatively, for the SW Motech pannier racks as I have done. You can fit the Trax or Givi bitts to it, they're cheap.
