Really FreaKinG COOL Pannier for the KTM 950

thanks again to Mister MAMF a new step in design and quality is being reach

last night I got a bunch of photos of his one of the kind saddle bags, made for him by a german Guy call Roger that use to be a Formula ONE Fabricator...easy to tell

Here is the Photo Album
and here are some pictures of the end result.





Flawless construction


the basic mount,,so small so close,so awesome


NOTE:I have nothing to do with this company in fact I don't even have Roger's e-mail or his website so we will need to wait for him to start to post of for MAMF to coment in how the process work.

I'm doing this posting out of Pure admiration for the crafsmanship and the exelent attencion to detail

I'm sure is room for improvent like on anything else,but with the skills of this guys and his willingness to find perfection i'm sure is not a big deal

MAMF also mension to me that this panniers are hand made to his needs so maybe if you have a special design that you want to create Roger is a good man to talk to.

One last cool detail


I want some.........!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome panniers, was looking at then earlier on Smugmug where I came across a gallery of Ricky's photos.

I reckon they'd be even better with detachable lift-off lids. This way you could carry a large stuff-sack across the seat & still access the panniers without first removing the sack?

Hello Ricardo,
thank you for all the praise. I do metalwork sins 1986,before this time I used to work as a motorcycle mecanic for about 12 years, in a shop and also as a race mecanic in motorcycle world championship. More than the last 6 years I was in Switzerland, working for Sauber - Petronas Formular 1 team. Now I am back again in Germany in my own shop, wich is in the north of Bavaria. The very first panniers for motorbikes I did in 1987. In the folowing years I did a lot of systems ( rack and aluboxes ) for Yamaha XT 600 Tenere , BMW R 100 GS and 1150 GS, Honda Africa Twin and now KTM LC 8. Also I did custom made aluminium frames for mountainbikes and a lot of other stuff.
O. K. so it would be nice to have a chance to sell some stuff in America, but I have never been to the United States and I have not a clue how the shippment works and how expensive it is, but I will ask the postman or UPS there for. If you think about to order a KTM - system, remember the time of delivery can be sometimes a little longer , because I am a one man band , what means that I am on my own and have no employees.
So far enough for today. It was nice to get a mail from the USA , have a good time - ride on,

best Regards from Bavaria - Germany
Roger......
the minute that he tell me is okay for others to contact him the minute i post his e-mail
