Wink JourneyRider Panniers, new & improved for 2015, only $499!!!

Hey guys, I have been working on a new prototype for my JourneyRider panniers. This version is called the "Tynda."

Some of you guys probably have previous versions of my panniers. My goal with customer service is to try and deliver more then the customer expects, and hopefully the customer will keep coming back. I know that $500 internet purchases can be scary! Here is a link to an early one of my pannier threads.
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=654145
I want to show everyone that I have a consistent history of excellent customer service.

Almost 10 years ago I did a 30K mile trip from Iowa to Argentina. When I got back, I knew all the things that my 'ideal' set of panniers should have. www.journeyrider.net

Wanted to show you what they are going to look like:
(Note: the new latches are better than the ones shown on the bmw and suzuki pictures. Here is a picture of the latch:)
Option 1 latch:

The nice thing about this high quality stainless locking latch is that it can still act as a hinge, so you can pick and choose which side of the pannier that you want to have open. There is a removable security cable with multiple mounting positions. You can also take the lid off of the pannier. Being able to remove the lid on your pannier is a great feature. It can be frustrating trying to unpack/pack a densely loaded pannier when you can not remove the lid to get it out of the way. When camping, the top of the lid makes a tray table for food preparation/ eating. Also, if you ever have a good crash where the pannier hits a rock and bends, it is much easier to fix a latch than it is to fix a hinge.

Option 2 latch:
For this option your latch system includes a high quality stainless locking latch on one side of the pannier and the other side has a high quality stainless steel hinge. The latch is the same one featured in the picture above. This cost saving option is a good one for adventurers who do light to medium offroad.










Features:
1. .08" or 2 mm thickness
2. stainless steel latches (safety cover protects latch from tampering)
3. high quality internal locks with 4 keys
4. reinforced TIG welded
5. one piece stamped lid and bottom
6. aircraft riveted
7. 4 pc. tie downs on lids
8. Snug fit rubber seal
9. Optional handles
10. Removable lids (for packing and camping)

Dimensions:
1. 17" x 15.5" x 8.3" 32L
2. 17" x 15.5" x 9.5" 36L



These panniers were designed for the adventure motorcyclist who rides off-road. With 1.5 mm aluminum, a rider's first fall is going to distort the shape of the pannier. Do not get tricked into ordering 40-45 L luggage. Besides making the profile of the motorcycle dangerously wide for traffic, it will also bend more in a crash.

These locking latches are a vast improvement over the previous versions.


Pricing (per set):
1. 32L, latch option 2 499
2. 32L, latch option 1 529
3. 36L, latch option 2 519
4. 36L, latch option 1 549
5. Staggered Set, (32L & 36L) latch option 2 519
6. Staggered Set, (32L & 36L) latch option 1 549

Extra Options:
1. Aluminum Carrying Handles (installed) 24
2. Straps (black nylon for SS fittings) 9
3. Mounting pucks and hardware 29

Shipping
1. USPS (lower 48 only) 5-7 days, 3rd party insurance included: $39
2. USPS (Candada) 10 days, no insurance : $69
3. International: please email me with your location.


btw: I will not have them available for sale until April 24th. I am accepting $90 deposits via paypal. Please place a deposit ahead of time and I will make sure that you get the options that you want.

Paypal address: golfechooscarfoxtrot@gmail.com


btw: I also have a top box:



Thank You,
Jeff

I might be interested in this. Do you have any quick detach or locking mechanism that goes along with the top case?

Hi Sara, thank you for your interest. I do not currently offer a mounting product for the top box. I will do some more research and try and find a more cost effective solution for you, but in the mean time here are the best options that I found:
http://www.happy-trail.com/Happy-Tra...Top-Boxes.aspx
http://www.happy-trail.com/Top-Plate-T3-Universal.aspx
http://www.happy-trail.com/Happy-Tra...Mount-Kit.aspx

If anyone else has advice for Sara on a less expensive mounting solution for her top box please feel free to post.

Hi Kyle, yes, they make racks for the 97 Harley Sportster 1200, so with the mounting kit you could easily use these panniers on your bike. Neat to see that you are local, we should go riding when it gets a little warmer.

Here is the set of panniers that inspired the 'Tynda' version.


I bought these from Tiberio Tibejara who was a well known Adventure Motorcycle Mechanic in Medellin, Colombia. When my bike broke down in Colombia Tiberio drove about 300 miles to come rescue me. He was famous for helping out travelers.

To build his panniers, Tiberio got one of the commercial aviation maintenance shops to use their special riveting machine which allowed them to make quality rivets deep inside the pannier. He designed his panniers so that there would be as few needed TIG welds as possible, but he still had to use TIG welds on the beveled bottoms and on the lid corners.

An advantage to JourneyRider's Tynda panniers is the way the beveled bottoms and lids are made. For the production of them they use a mold (positive plus negative) made of a special very hard cast iron alloy that will not suffer wear & tear when thousands and thousands of aluminum sheets are forced into/over it to press them into their particular shape. Over time TIG welds will break, as I witnessed on the lids and bottoms of Tiberio's panniers. Overall, his panniers held up great but I am glad that Tynda panniers will not have this problem, so you will not need to go searching for a TIG welder in rural Latin America or for the few welders in the USA who still do quality small job repair work at reasonable prices.

Hi Str8lin, I don't have any plans for offering a black powdercoat right now. The insides are powdercoated to prevent stains. That would be fine if your brother wants to come take a look at them. I'm pretty close to Grimes.

Hi Ctoldie, I just looked at the Hepco Becker 2009 f650 racks and you will just need to buy a mounting kit from me. It looks like this kit, but instead of $62 + $15 shipping my kit is only 29 dollars with free shipping.

One last question before I commit:

Under your features listing:


".08" or 2 mm thickness"


What is the pannier thickness for 32L and also thickness of the lid?

Thank you
