That's the nicest looking set I've seen yet!
They're Hepco and Becker Xplorer panniers. I bought them from Adventure Motostuff, who I can't recommend enough. Awesome service from those guys. The panniers are pretty tough, too. Survived a get-off on Ophir Pass w/ little more than a couple scratches.

Those are very inspiring photos.

Has anybody ridden the 800XC off-road two up? I'm interested to know it works for that. I test rode a 800 XC earlier this year and it's in my sights as a possible replacement for my KLR650. One of it's missions would be for riding of the easy routes on organized dual sport rides two up. I bought my KLR for that purpose but am questioning it's lack of power and um.... less than stellar suspension to get the job done.

Maybe there is a better thread to pose this question, if so, please redirect me. I chose this one due to the proliferation of off-road riding shots.

I've been to some nice places in my 1500 miles:







And unfortunately, a scene I've seen too many times...

Nice panniers! Could you post up more pictures, maybe one of the rear of the bike some that show the panniers open.

Regards, Paul

Yes, a couple times. just remember it's it's pretty heavy when loaded with 2up & we did some great single track in N GA. The suspension does ok, turned the preload up on the rear...she ain't no lightweight....if you are an experienced rider you'll be fine. We are planning ride to CO next year & my wife wants to come along....so we will be 2 up.

I was out last weekend testing the Tiger in the dirt at our local ORV riding area with my son on the back and didn't even notice a difference.

Those look awesome on your bike are they the Touratech boxes? Did you install your fog lights or did the dealer do it?

Yes they are Touratech, just show up today. I installed the lights myself. Here is some advice, first it was easy and second it works best if your going to install heated grips do it all at the same time.
