A little offroad with the machine. It has no proper tyres to do that, 2 days in the middle of nowhere taking the bikes out of this swamp.

Hi Tim, Has that screen (on the left) been cut down or did you buy a shorter one??

Hi there

are the SW Motech quick release racks robust enough for off-road use? I am thinking about buying them. Why did you motosport panniers instead of SW motech? Curious to know

Cheers

Can anyone tell me if converting my Tens forks to Yamaha WR450F or KTM 640 Adventure with custom machined clamps would have any major impacts on braking since i would be sacrificing my brembo twin discs for one caliper..

Hey Barney, that is the original screen that I cut down (angle grinder to get the basic shape, then Dremel, then sand-paper).

Hi Sam, yes, I found that they were well up to the job - they coped with this





I intend to get a set for my Super Tenere so that I can use the panniers on both bikes.

I went for the Motosports as they were the narrowest that I could find - each one is only 17cm wide.

They have survived a few adventures now!
