Being a notorious tight-arse, I grabbed a set which came up second-hand - only set I've ever seen offered for sale; One of the latches had lost its lock on a previous trip around Australia; when I contacted Locky about the cost of a replacement, he sent it gratis. Free. No charge. Despite the fact that I hadn't paid him for the boxes but bought them second-hand.

That, Ladies & Gents, is Customer Service - something which most traders in Australia have either forgotten, or never knew.
The only way these panniers could be improved? By having a slide-out fabric bag to sling over your shoulder as you step into the hotel


But if you're weighing up the cost of these or boxes from Germanland, Remainhere, India, China or wherever, you not will be unhappy with Locky's products, his price or his service.
For the next or other bikes, I'd certainly only make one call.
(NB: No affiliations other than as a very happy non-customer!)
This is what i am working on, soon i hope.

Jebus!

Thinking positive thoughts Locky. If needed contact the nearest embassy (London ?) and they may be able to arrange an Aus doc to accompany her back. My cousin needed a medical escort from Rome a fews years back after it was clear the local hospitals weren't helping his situation.

As far as the DR pannier racks go guys i've had had mine for more than a year and I can vouch for them. They're built better than the rest of the bike.

Hi Andy, what was it i was putting together for you, just because im sitting in a flea bag hotel room in Dubrovnik dont mean the pannier business grinds to a holt, visiting hours hav finished at the hospital for today so its back to work. The girl is hurting but will get through it, a tough cookie.
I am trying to arrange as much from here as i can so things dont stop alltogether but my build log is at home on my desktop computer and i find the memery bank is just not cutting it like it used to.
cheers Locky.

I am not too stressed, dont have time to do any serious rides until well after christmas, but for the record it was a set of frames and a rack for the DR650.

Sort your daughter out first, much more important.

Looks like a great product mate, good luck with it all (and you daughter). If you ever put something together for the G650gs Sertao feel free to send me a message, I'm looking at luggage options at the moment.

Like to say a big thank you to all the people that sent well wishes for my daughters recovery while we were in Dubrovnik, insurance up graded her flights to a lay down bed in first class, to cover there costs i had to sit on a nilk crate down the back but hey she is home and safe. Funny place this ADV site, we become friends but may have never met, we go out of our way for people that we know we may never see again in out lifetime.
Thanks.

Hey Locky,

Glad to hear that you and your daughter made it back safe and well and I wish her the speediest recovery!

I grabbed a set of front n rear holan bars off you about 8 months ago for my F650gs and Im looking to upgrade to the new 2013 f800gs, Im just wondering if you had any experience in fitting these bars to the new one? and do they fit?

Cheers,
