Jesse just seems to fit the nicest, regardless of the bike. Possibly a bit narrow but they just fit, kinda like the way a car would set with suspension tweaks, tires, so forth...
Do you know what I mean?

I'll just leave this here...



Can neatly accommodate RotopaX too, when needed. If you're considering soft bags, feel free to click the image for more info.


Cheers,

Mine = Touratech stainless racks, 1550's, Happy Trails pucks.

...1500 top case mounted on the Baja bonus rack via 1 inch steel spacers.

Love this set up and minimal cash outlay!

FYI
The TT racks are TUFF and look great. I can pick the bike up by the rack with out any flex or give.

Thanks!
Cris

Luggage threads are getting to be like oil and tire threads.. But if you decide on hard bags I will throw in with all of the votes for Jesse- unbeatable for value, fit, and finish, and first rate service if you ever need parts or have a question.

I can also confirm that the suckers HURT when they land on your leg. Well actually, it didn't hurt until afterwards, but the pain took a long time to go away.

Another story..

I have the original Zega cans. Lightest on the market and I think my Crossfires would dent the can instead of the can denting my leg. I also have a set of the ZegaFlex soft bags that adapt to the same racks. 07 950SE

I thought about all panniers available, what seemed to fit my wants and have it all post sea-trial status before I leave. The Jesse's leave me a satisfied customer. The installation was easy and a fun 90 minutes. Everything was shipped with the Jesse's and no issues were encountered.
I leave in two weeks and anticipate that it will not be a early Colorado winter and that I can finally get to know this motorcycle with all of the additions/mods.

you dont say where you are from, but if the europe side of the pond, dont touch jessies with a barge pole, they are eye wateringly expensive over here, and had to use a set on a bike I borrowed and there are lots of better options out there.
They are quite thin compared to others, and the outwards opening lid was a real PIA, for that reason I wouldnt look at metal mule either, for same reason, they way they open, and the cost. Both are over 1000 which is stupidly expensive for a pair of metal boxes !!

It depends what you want from a set of bags, for my money stalkoffer are the best value around, robust, well made, and they are completly flat on the inside with all the mounting hardware on the outside. which make it very easy to pack. Ard Cases are well worth a look, but both are only worth it if you are this side of the pond.

For what its worth I used a set which open on the short side of the box, so I strap bags and tent etc accross the top of the boxes and if I need to get inside, open the latches and tip both lids and all my luggage up and forward and I have access to the boxes, makes life really easy when travelling, but mine were adapeted from a set designed for the GS1100.

I decided on hard bags the day I saw a Vstrom rider talking with the local police regarding some POS who removed his Wolfmans with a pocket knife apparently. All if this riders clothes, some cash and electronics were gone within the time he was out of sight of his bike.

Jesse's, all hard panniers are $500 plus. Soft bags are near $500.
Peace of mind is part of my decision.
