Great bit of kit.

A great Aussie bit of kit. Tough as. Between the Exp bags & and the Safari tank I don't think I marked the DR when I had it. Have used them on the Wee as well.

Circumnavigated the island of Rarotonga ,Cook Islands, all 32kms of it on a Nifty50. Does that qualify as an Adventure.

I've just ordered another set of Expedition Pannierz. After 6 years, about 80K km of abuse, countless crashes & a few repairs the old set were getting a bit ragged & busted but they are such great gear I didn't hesitate to get them again.

Looking at a mate's newer set the other day I noticed they were further reinforced in all the points where my old ones had failed, so between that & the fact that my newly redesigned racks should stress them a bit less I reckon the new set will be good for twice as many miles.

Here's a link to some details of my minimalist rack build.

Cheers
Clint

Hey Andy:
I just sourced a pair of pannierz with plans to sling them over my SW Motech racks on my KTM 950. But racks are too wide for the bag. I'd love to get my hands on one of those extender thingies, however, it appears that your US distributor is no longer distributing. Suggestions?

It's pretty easy to make something up with a couple of buckles & some extra strap (car seatbelt works good) if you don't need to undo the velcro to fit them. We have actually threaded a hook onto the front straps that hooks on a strap looped under the seat to improve comfort:

2nd set of panniers.

I've ordered the new set yesterday. Wow. Turned up up by courier at 8 this morning.

Massive tick to your service guys. As usual.

Thanks very much!

Andy doesnt seem to post much here, so i'll do it for him. I loaned Andy my bike to make some minimalist type racks for the 1190 Adventure (R). He might tell you all about them. They are on his website.

I made up a little video of the day we installed them. They are working very nicely.

Hmmm... how to embed?... Oh, HTML is off on this thread for me?

Russ screwed with this post 09-22-2013 at 02:01 PM Reason: Try video

Not bad.. They look like they sit up a fair bit though... Have u filled them n gone for a spin? I'd be interested to see if it makes the bike more top heavy..

On to it

G'day

There are some really inventive and clever people out there, great to see what's happening.

Thanks for your help Nerb.

The whole plan was to make sure the bike was as narrow as possible by tucking the panniers in over the pipe. Hanging out the side like the OEM boxes do makes for a wide and potentially easily buggered up system in a fall. At a rough guess the system should be with in ball park of the OEM boxes.

Owners have a choice of using two of my Traveller Pannierz one as Nerb has done, opt of one Traveller and one Expedition Pannier. Travellers are smaller in volume but multi adjustable so will clear the pipe.

Like all thingz dual sport it's all about finding the best compromise.

The next cab off the frames rank is the 2013 BMW 1200GS, prototyping next week.

GP Shop in Cowes

This year's all signing, all dancing Andy Strapz roadshow is about to be snicked into first gear. Due to the unreasonably unreasonable GP Corps attitude and rising, eye watering costs I have taken a shop in the main street of Cowes for the week. I have a roomy shop for the week so I'm planning on a more relaxed and less crowded experience. There'll be plenty of room to try gear on your bike in the parking lot
New stocks of Forma ADV boots should turn up Wednesday (about bloody time), Boris will be doing a book signing Saturday Morning.

Al Fewster will be presenting a short chat about his racing and life since losing two limbs on Friday and Saturday evening around 7.The plan is to help him by raising a bit if cash for his racing plans. He's on a pension since a pissed shit head in a tradie truck took him out on the wrong side of the road. If you can't make the GP and want to help please drop some money in his paypal account at boneapart25@yahoo.com.au

https://fbexternal-a.akamaihd.net/sa...re%3Dog&jq=100

Opening hours will be 11-late Wednesday and Thursday, 8.30 til late Friday to Sunday and Monday morning.

Wink not a fan

I'm not such a fan of the plastic jerry can thing unless it's for the weekly shopping. To some extent it negates the purpose of a soft bag. The sides become rigid and don't accept odd shaped gear like shoes as well, reducing usable volume. Secondly there is now a type of hard box that is not so leg friendly in a fall. They do make for a great place to put a slab and a bag of ice though.
