When I saw the thread I couldn't believe it

This is just what I've been looking for " watercooled panniers "

Now I can keep my beer and food cooled down in the middle of summer.

Will be anxious to see/hear about those ...

I can imagine your disappointment!

That would be something. Put in isolation, a cooling element and an outside radiator and you could have a fridge pannier.

Hahaha! That's what I was thinking too when I saw the thread title! Like, do these new watercooled panniers have a refrigeration/chiller system to keep beer cold or something?

You could always put a drain plug in the bottom of one then fill with desired beverages, add ice. Instantly becomeing the V.I.P of your group. Side note what do you think of the holan nomads, I see they have a system with an exaughst cutout that tucks up nice and keeps the back end a little narrower.

I've been using my panniers like that for years, minus the drain plug.

Fill them full of Ice and use them as a cooler for the good stuff at rallies!

I actually saw a guy with a GSA that had figured out a way to refrigerate his top box because his wife had to have meds kept cool. They were on a trip to South America. He said touratech was interested in his design. Wish I had taken a picture. Maybe he is on the forum and will chime in here....

I believe he is on the forum. I remember that discussion, but not who it was.

We definitely need to see that refrigerated top box design in the Show us something that you MADE... thread.

Touratech uses the same size mounting loops / hockey pucks for Zegas. I have the same set that i had on a F650gs Dakar, then a R1150gs and now on my F800gs.

I saw these panniers today. If you want some metal boxes for your LC, without the scaffolding, they are a great alternative.

Can I assume they don't come off easily?

Ouch. It looks like something they slapped together after a few pints.
