Can you help?
I note the one in teh snap above doesn't have a cut out for the pipe. Does width then become an issue?

I did read that you're os until mid December. Hope you're having a fantastic trip.

I've sent you a PM that you can worry about in a few days time. Life's too short to be distracted from fun by other people. Worry about work at work. Actually, try not to worry about work (advice that is easy to give, very difficult to practice).

Locky, I got to drop up on the explorer in the new year and get some panniers/boxes fitted. Happy to leave the bike with you if you need to experiment, although I think last time I was up there you said you had something. I would prefer the solid steel frames you make, and also want your boxes if at all possible.

Hi Max, I have made up some custom frames for the R80ST's and the R100GS's but they were just one off sets and nothing that I have bothered to build jig's for. To do anything I would need the bike for a few days, PM me if your interested

Andy, I have just got some new tie down loops so have two different styles now, the silver ones and some lower profile sets that can be mounted on the bevelled angles of the lids and not protrude past the width of the lid. these will look cool on your Explorer.

Cheers locky.

Locky supplied me with a pair of 'new style' panniers (double bevel) to attach to the Hepco & Becker pannier frames I bought from Moto Adventure Products.









The locks have been fitted & the line up /protection tape removed since the photos.

Happy with the result, now just have to find time to use them. Like next week

Thanks Locky!

One last comment, my wife was watching & listening from the sideline and she commented on Locky's first rate customer service.


EDIT;
I went to Phillip Island last week. The lid stooe up pretty well to being shed at 100km/h and crashing onto the bitumen. Few scars but it fits fine.
- maybe this icon should just be attached to everything I do?
