Can you give a price for these and can they be ordered to color match the bags?

Lid racks are $65 a set plus shipping. And they can be color matched if your bags are silver or black.
Call Alycia if interested

Quick question: now that the new R1200GS (2013, watercooled) has the exhaust on the right side, same as the Tiger 800 and Tiger Explorer, do you think the Odyssey II boxes for a Tiger will fit the racks you'll build for the R1200GS?

Do you guys try to fit the same cases with the same mounting holes to different bikes by making the rack appropriately?

I'm kind of liking the contrast. If you get bored, can you snap a few pictures showing the different color combinations? I have charcoal bags, so would especially like to see those represented.

From what I have seen, the bags are used in as many applications as possible. That said, I'm not sure that the Tiger bags have the appropriate cut-out. Likely he will have to make them specifically for the new Wethead.

They do have a cut out. Although it looks like the exhaust sits different enough to go for a new cutout shape:





Might make the racks different enough to not fit. Darn.

As far as we can tell, (we don't have a bike yet) the Wethead and Triumph bags will probably be the same. Just different mout systems to attach them to the motorbike. And yea, we do try to match up different model bikes with existing panniers. It helps us with production, and customers that get a different bike, can just change mounts.

That would be awesome. I'll very likely buy a new GS late this year or early next and will likely keep the Tiger. Would be nice to have a single set of panniers.

Another question: do you make the Odyssey II also in a 9" version?

Negative. Not on the drawing board either. Most everyone in the world wants bigger, not smaller bags. That's why we made these....

Yep. Main reason is that I travel alone on my own bike. My wife has her own bike with her own luggage ...

Not that I still carry a lot of her stuff though ...

Few quick questions...

I have an 07 Vstrom 1000 now with your panniers on it. I'm debating selling it and stepping to the 650 Vstrom.

  1. I'm pretty sure I could keep the same panniers for both bikes, correct?
  2. Are the racks/panniers between the older 650s (2011 & older) and the new 2012+ 650s the same?
  3. About how much would just a rack set cost?

I'm trying to decide if I want to sell the bike w/ the panniers and just buy new ones when I get my new bike, keep the panniers and just buy racks, just sell the racks, etc...
