I was getting a tyre at 'Fun n Fast' in St Johns the other day. Scott, the owner says "we had a guy pass through here on one of them a few years ago"....... And so the story was told lol.

Lots of people having problems at the moment, The website has been down and they have possibly buggered off on holiday without telling anyone. Best bet is to call them, +49 (0) 221-768056-0.

I'm thinking to have touratech panniers, but cannot decide between the 38 - 45 liter version.
Both are for the same money and the weight difference is quite minimal. For these reason Iwould like to buy the bigger, but I fear that the bigger is too wide (may look too big for this bike and may ruin the cornering abilities onroad)
Does anybody has pictures with the biggest touratech panniers on the bike to check? Or have experience about the cornering issue?
Thanx!

As an aside ....I have www.ardcases.co.uk on my Ten. They have welded seams and are waterproof..I didn't fancy paying TT money.

If you look out for the white XTZ in this ride report you'll see the next size up from mine... eg post number 66

maybe you didn't read my 50,000 mile build thread? LINK ...i gave my bike to Al Jesse - www.jesseluggage.com and they make panniers now for the XT660Z even though they are not shown on their website...far superior to any other bag on the market for comparable or lower price, they have been making bags for about 20 years, longer than any company in business, even touratech...look on this website (www.advrider.com) and see how many real long distance riders use them, its a lot, more than any other bag on the market...just another option you may have not known about

No cornering issues at all...my bike in the below picture is fully loaded and i rode 30,000 from this photo onwards, packing with full camping and cooking gear, no more top cases or additional bags needed...great for security at borders, shops, time away from the bike etc.

one thing i really like about them is the mount...it gives you the option to position the bags rearwards or forwards depending on your riding style, location or carrying a passenger, i have them fully forward riding solo to center more of the weight

what they look like on the bike, these are 110 liters total and the same width as the bars, you can get them bigger or smaller, they are all built to your order




they are about two inches wider and taller than the stock Yamaha bags, but the capacity is almost double because there is storage in the lids which most other bags don't have



the mount system, i have also used wolfman soft bags with the same mounts and they fit and worked perfectly too as well

Hola Folks,

Finally got round to joining up. Currently 10 months / 23,000km into a leisurely ride around S America and pit-stopping for a few weeks in Santiago to get some work done on my Tenere.



I've just posted a report on xt660.com (in the XTZ Tech/Mods forum) about all the mods on my bike, making some observations on them after some time on the road. I'll post it here at some stage. Might be useful if anyone is in the process of prepping their bike for a big trip somewhere.

Paul
