Does the GL Coyote bag work fine without any sort of pannier rack or racks or any sort on the XC? I really don't want to add anything permanent as most of my riding is just local but would like an option that I could throw on if I wanted to go somewhere. I suspect it's fine as they run them on KLR's and DR650's.
I put my hand on the stock exhaust heat shield today while riding and it was almost ambient temp when moving. I did read somewhere where someone added some self adhesive reflective metal tape as added protection for heat. I can imagine that it will get hot when stopped or in town.
I drive a BMW, but I ride a Triumph.
