Do the new soft Panniers (Not photoed in this thread yet) require a tube frame?
I need a solution for single up aggressive dirt riding and a more relaxed pace with a passenger. What might you suggest?
Hey Cyclops! Great Basin Saddlebag is designed to sit where a passenger sits - pillion seat - and strap to passenger peg mounts.

See my pics and comments here about riding 2-up with Siskiyou Panniers: Short answer - works great! Just strap on a little stadium cushion.

No rack required! No tube frame! Includes everything needed to strap it on and ride!

If you have a tail rack on your 950 Adventure, the 30-liter Coyote Saddlebag can be mounted completely behind the saddle, giving you your entire seat length for aggressive dirt riding. You can also ride 2-up with the Coyote wrapping around the back of the passenger. I've done this, with the addition of GL Dry Bag, on weekend trips riding 2-up.
