Albie, your post defines irony. Well done.

I just fitted a pair on my 690 with the Rally Raid soft pannier rack. It's an easy fit. I've secured each bag with a karabiner at the top and a padlock at the bottom, plus a couple of bungees for good measure. I'll take some pictures when I get a chance.

I will say this: they (the panniers) are very good quality and look like they're going to last well. The inner bags are also very high quality with very good taped seams. The photos on the Adventure spec website don't really do the bags justice.

Re: Adventure-Spec Magadan Soft panniers

I've posted some pics on Flickr here. Disregard the 125 Duke on the same page.

Team-

Here's my setup so far:

The same Wolfman tankbag I used on the 640A, a Sea to Summit waterproof deckbag lashed to the TT 640A Rear Rack extension which was bolted to the SW Motech rear rack I asked about a few pages back, and the TT hard bag mounts.

I have the Wolfman Wolftail or whatever it's called and considered using this bag on the tail rack of the 690, but the SW Motech rack calls for roughly 12lbs as a max load. Since I have managed to load 20 lbs in the Wolfman bag, I decided to use a lower profile, smaller bag. The deck bag is still big enough for a compressor, rain gear top and bottoms, a substantial assortment of tools, snacks, a front tube and more water.

One trip to Handy City on a mission for longer top rack mounting bolts and I was cooking with grease. I couldn't believe how quickly and easily the TT racks for the 690 mounted up compared to the Hard bag TT mounts for the 640A.

I do have the upper and lower Rally Raid tank bolts.

For those who are wondering, the hard bag mounts on this bike seem every bit as sturdy as the bag mounts on the 640.

I'd love to know how they fit on that rack, or if the rack is way too f'n big for the dirtbagz. I'd like to go this route to leave the hard luggage option open for a future trip, but still be able to use my existing dirtbagz.

Yep. They work well together except for the position of the pillion foot pegs - I would say you would have to remove the bags if you wanted to carry a passenger for any distance.

Thank you for taking the time to take and post those pictures of your Adventure Spec Panniers on your 690. As far as I'm aware those might be the only pictures of that particular combination on the internet. I really like the look of them on your 690.

Some pics of luggage of a 690 I just sold. They were made of military 50mm ammo cases.

Thanks that's good to know, I'm slowly getting bits together for mine.
Though for some bizarre reason for me to insure the bike with pillion cover was another 300 odd quid!!
So not really bothered about carrying a passenger on the 690 and I've got a Fazer FZ6 for that, which would be more comfortable for them too
