My run to the north rim of the Grand Canyon with 460 miles over 3 days of great riding and great results....even tossing the bike into a mud puddle and then a tree left the luggage and bike in good condition...and the views were.....awesome!

I've been using the Enduristan Monsoon saddlebags for a while now. Haven't done any touring but for short overnight trips the bags have been pretty good.

For daily riding I only have a single Touratech rack with a tool tube mounted. The Monsoon bag can be strapped to the rack in just a few seconds and the whole combination weighs only a couple of kilos. Perfect for getting groceries etc.

Looks like your not using any racks. What did you use to protect the muffler from melting the bag?

For the price and possible rack-less mount, these may just be what I'm looking for.

Hi Oldbear,

What Carbon cover can I see here? It seems to cover the cap more completely than these covers offered here:

I've seen a few PVC or moulded plastic "tool-boxes" tucked in behind the pannier racks, but has anyone explored the possibility of mounting larger versions of this idea?

What I've got in mind is to have hard panniers which tuck in under the muffler on side and under the fuel tank on the other side - obviously with an eye to swing arm clearance.

I reckon it might be possible to create luggage which retains the volume of the traditinal hard panniers, but with at least 100mm each side less width. To maintain the volume I've been thinking of making the panniers deeper - perhaps hanging as low as the top of the chain. To reduce the likelihood of jamming a foot under the luggage (I still manage to catch my feet under my soft bags as much as I did under my aluminium boxes) I would make them with steeply angled leading edges to the front, the underside and the outside.

Try to imagine the view if you stand on the pegs and look straight down - I have a Safari tank. I'd like to create the same lines as the Safari tank, only extending it to the rear.....

Has anyone tried something similar?

I have a spare parts tube and RR fuel tank on that side. Some people use the RR fuel tank as a parts storage or for the tools.


My spare parts tube was made form a Kru 82 Vodka bottle. 1.75 liter with a 3" rubber plumbing cap.

I will say this: they (the panniers) are very good quality and look like they're going to last well. The inner bags are also very high quality with very good taped seams. The photos on the Adventure spec website don't really do the bags justice.
I was thinking with Walter's bags it'd be nice to get a small extra piece of the same material and see how tough it is to cut it with a knife or clip them... anyone try messing with that material yet?

Hi noah
No snow today mate?
I've got the rr rear tank too but I want that for fuel.
If I can't come up with an "elegant solution", I might strap a couple of
tubes similar to yours on the inside of my frame.
What i'm dreaming of is a plastic luggage system which fits as snugly as
the rr rear tank does and made from the same material.
the next pipe dream is a front faring (including mounting frame) made
the same way.

while I'm at it I
might try to work out a Snowboard rack too
