You are definitely one of the "speshul" ones for sure! As long as you can still kick a few shins now and then, you're kicking plenty high enough

I'm trying to figure out what language you are talking! That accent sounds like "5 hour speak"....

It was so nice when I bought my Wee with luggage already on it... I've been struggling to make a decision on new luggage for the Tiger, especially now that i have the money form the KLR sale to get some, and still can't decide! So many options, reviews, opinions, etc!

The new black and silver "black edition" cases would look good and you know they take some abuse.

The two side cases are $783.97
42L top case is $325.12
Does not include racks... But they are the most rugged in case of a top over or bump.

The Givi Trekkers were at the top of the list until I saw numerous reports of their mounting system not holding up to still tipovers or any offroad use.

H&P also has the XPLORER series that is their aluminum boxes. But I guess the Gobi are still my favorite... Argh!!!

The Xplorer version on a Tiger:

Way more reasonable and better built than anything you are looking at. With racks and bags I see $810 plus shipping. Good folks to deal with. The black panniers would look great on your bike. Another $149 for tail rack which are nice.

No Aluminum. Too heavy and too much of a leg breaker off road.

The H&B Gobi's have a certain amount of flex and give that makes them much better and much more rugged for offroad, also for not breaking a leg. Their mounting system won't shear off. As seen when a certain Tiger 1050 got too close. (And the HT's are ugly, in my opinion... YMMV)

Any of them will BREAK your leg. First thing to come off if you plan serious off roading is the panniers of any kind. As for the weight you are misinformed, I've had them and they are lighter than my plastic Givi or Yamaha plastic panniers. I have never seen a Happy trail pannier sheer off They are all but bomb proof.

Okay, then in that case, I'll just say I don't like them and they are not on my list of prospective products to purchase.

As I recall YOU are the one that went asking and when told can't/won't listen to reason or past experiences. If your mind was made up to begin with then why go asking.....

Yes, and above I posted the two or three options at the top of my list that I am trying to decide between, and, as usual, someone comes in with a suggestion from outside those bounds and then gets their feelings hurt when everyone doesn't agree with them... I don't have to scratch my head. I'm used to it...

BTW, they look really good on a Super Tenere!


Even the blue ones.

I did look at some Jesse boxes, as they fit the contour of the exhaust and sit a bit closer than some I've considered.

Edit: Just went back to the Jesse sight... 9" and 10" boxes but the top box is a bit awkward and appears to require a plate over the passenger seat?!?

That's an accessory plate that replaces the seat. It also has a toolbox under it I think. The top box bolts to a separate plate that replaces the factory luggage rack IIRC. I don't know for sure since I've never considered a top box really.

I was actually just messing with you since you didn't say they were ones you were considering, hence the ... In all seriousness I couldn't be happier with mine
