... Maybe clarify on your website that ear moulds are by appointment only to avoid disappointment and not - come on down and made while you wait.

It appears my feedback has been taken on board. Full marks for Andy's commitment to listening to any feedback provided, something that is missing in a lot of businesses these days.

170,000km of reliable Expedition Pannierz traveled thus far Andy.
The liners now get used in the ST as well as the bags.
Used as beer coolers and eskys and just holding tools and work stuff too.

These bagz have been some of the best money spent on bike stuff.

Very happy.

Thankyou A Strapz

4 of us used and abused your panniers in 2012. Great gear!!
I built some custom racks for the Tiger, set at 45deg - giving me the space for the 8ltr can and keeping the width inside the handle bars. (also thinkin the angle might ease the strain on the straps across the seat... )

Canvas vs Cordura

Andy, can you provide some insight as to why you use canvas for your panniers? Just cost?
I had a set of cheap Cordura bags that seemed to stand up well to a fall. I'm assuming canvas will be less abrasion resistant?

I also tried the plastic jerry in my bags, but agree - you lose too much space

By the way, bought some Forma boots off you a couple of years ago and loving them

Really like your gear, I've already got a giant loop great basin and their fandango tank bag. Want to integrate your straps for holding a swag down to my great basin.

What do you recommend

Hi Burkey - I helped Andy out at the Sydney show and will be at Brisbane and Melbourne shows this year.

I'm now know as Fat Strapz - bastards.

If you're packing on the XR then probably a set of Smart Strapz would work anchored to the passenger pegs (or where the Great Basin is tied down). Check them out on Andy's website.

Why do people think bike riders all like rock'n'roll??

I recently bought a pair of the Piggy back Strapz and must say how easy these are to use and never once did i feel they would come off. In fact, once i'd strapped everything down on a recent trip, i didn't even think about them again till i had to unstrap them.

The idea of these strapz to enable adding items at will is a great idea.
Bloody good product.
Cheers Andy.

Thumb Thank You

I recently ordered (at great expense) crash bars from the UK that when they arrived hit my knees and were very uncomfortable. After calling several companies (including the UK based one where I got the product) for help and being told no refund was possible I called Andy.

Not only did he take the trouble to sort me a price to modify the bars but he ended up supplying me SW Motech for an excellent price. I was always going to use his panniers - hence the thought to ask him for help but had bought nothing from him until now.

I really appreciated the service and good value he and the team provided, thank you. You guys have made a customer for life.

Dedicated to his customers

I've just bought a pair of boots off Andy and I can say that his level of customer service is excellent. He actually cares and is striving to provide the best possible service. Well done to Andy and the team - I'm a very happy customer

I'll definitely be back in the future when I eventually get around to buying some decent soft luggage

Andy Strapz

Just a quick plug for Andy Strapz. First ride with my new expedition panniers & i snapped the bottom clip off. Instead of trying to find a clip that would fit the female portion ( must be a dozen different styles ) i sent Andy an e-mail asking if he sold them seperately as i could not see them on his site.
Now i know it probably wasn't a great expence for andy to send me one but his responce to my e-mail was short & sweet. Whats the address.
Some shops could learn from Andy's customer service.
Thanks again Andy.

+1 for Andystrapz.

Bought the pannier racks at the Sydney motorcycle expo. When I got home there were a few bolts and spacers missing. No probs; quick call and they were on the way.

That was 3 years ago and I couldn't help spending money at the next expo.

Hurray up November 2015
