If the pictures aren't in this thread, then, they're in the Tiger 800 thread. Basically it's just two plastic hooks, at the top of the pannier, that hook into rails on either side of the bike. If you've seen the 1050's OEM panniers, they attach the same way.

Or very similar to the 2005 Tigers that I had.

If they attach like the Sprint ST panniers then I can't imagine they are good for off road.

Mmm, 1000 pages to look through... I'm diving in now.

Hey Geoff, don't let that spoil your purchase. If they work for you, they work. If they don't, well, change them. From what I've seen the mounts are the weak point BUT I've also seen that the panniers fall off in a spill and, therefore, don't get damaged. You'll love the bike.

They aren't.

A friend of mine has the OEM luggage. He's hit them so hard on stumps and other shit that they are dented. They have a bad name because of one video that made in on the internet. If you crash, anything can happen to any kind of luggage.

Thanks. I finally found most of the pics I was looking for here:

http://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,1670.0.html

I used to have a 2003 Tiger 955i with the factory bags. They sucked, so I mounted up some cheap aluminum bags. These look less than ideal (#1 complaint, I prefer top loading.) but should do for a few years.

I think I'm 99% on the bike, but first someone has to buy my Landcruiser...

I agree.

Side-loading bags are a PITA, for anything. Going to the grocery store is especially bad.

These were just dropped off by UPS today. Multi Concept X-Pro handguards and Rox 2" risers. I will post up pics when I get them mounted. I really like the Acerbis handguards. I have used them on my quads for years and they can take a good beating. Not a bad deal either for 80 bucks they come with both sizes of deflectors.

Let us know how they fit. If it's good I'll order out a set. $150 for BB is just stupid.


BTW, on the side-loading bags, if you use stuff sacks and bag up your cargo in modules it's a non-issue. Been using pelican style boxes for years now without issue. But yeah, on the sidestand, opening the left case has your shit falling out.

Mine just took some minor alterations (notice the small socket ) to fit the XC. They seem to be quite sturdy and priced right.

Thanks for the tip. I will see how mine work out on the Roadie.

They fit up just fine. I tweaked the bend a small amount in the vise so the surfaces bolted up flat on the end of the bars and the bar brackets. The Rox risers worked great also. Plenty of cable and brake line to raise the bars the 2"
