Recess for an optional carry/lift handle?

Yup they sell either their metal handle

http://www.touratech.com/shops/001/p...oducts_id=6437

or a neat product that has a handle and webbing to attach stuff to the top of your panniers.

Of course now you've spent an additional hunk of dough to just carry your boxes.

Those Zega Pros do look good.

Regarding handles......No you haven't.

This was copied from another post.

While I had the parts on hand. You could purchase 1 pair of 24" straps and 1 pair of 48" straps. Cut the 48" ones down. Then have someone stitch loops on the ends of the cut offs. Add some plastic underground sprinkler hose and your good to go. At the most $10-$20 for a pair. I haven't traveled any great distance using them yet. So I can't say for sure if the straps do indeed keep an item in place.

While I love my TT Zega's.... I can't help but think they would explode like ripe melons in a hard crash.

bmwktmbill....do you think the handles would work on a RTW trip???

To me, they look like a desperate attempt to copy the BMW GSA panniers (also made by Touratech) without running into a copyright lawsuit right away.

TT-CA IS Touratech-Canada

We received them yesterday. And I wanted to share this new product that we have been waiting for a long time. We will be selling them in Canada and Touratech-USA will be selling them in the states.

how are the top seals

Are the top seals the same as the original Zega cases (Raised lip with silicon seals in the lids. The BMW branded cases don't have this lip and are said to leak and in some cases the cases will bulge out and leave a gap between the lid and the pannier. I saw this on the JVB accesories video Maybe BMW also corrected this problem since the video release. are the racks Stainlless steel and the same as the old zega or like stock BMW. I wande if you can use BMW lock cylinders so the bike key fits the Panniers like the stock BMW.

thanx for the info.

Any experiences yet
- how they handle and stay in form on rough terrain?
- if the anodized version stays blinking on an adventure journey with lots of sand, dust, you name it?
- if due to the new corner pieces the panniers scratche in curves even earlier than before, given the same litre volume?
