Puke The Tiger 955 luggage system

Triumph have put out, in cahoots with Givi, a full on pannier system.
The problem is not one of them does an after market system specifically for the Tiger after 2000. It's either the Genuine system or nout. I reckon the cost is too mcuh and I'm worried about damaging those cute little panniers off road.
So I set about getting a custom made set. Here goes, for a fraction of the price I had made, two extensions on either side which attached to existing holes and fixtures.
One fixing point was the Rear Footpegs, another being the mid seat bolt hole, which is there for that purpose and the other, after a small incision on the rear seat frame. It takes about 5mins pers side to put on and/or take off.
I got some fixing mushroom lugs and a locking clip from Givi. If you want pictures I can organise it. Also I bought a top plate to fix to the existing rack, atop is a Givi pannier. The total cost in Australian dollars is around AUS$1400 $1000 short of the Triumph quote.
