Thanx Dan, looking at panniers racks (for use with Soft Bags)atm myself, any advice you can give appreciated.
Would I be right in assuming the heavier (stronger) built the better.

I thought Caribou luggage was supposed to be the world's toughest luggage??!! You must have been on some "out of this world" roads.

I think what kills them, is the same for most hard luggage. Vibration over long period of time. It I know I going to rough places. I take the soft luggage. If it is a tar trip, I take the hard luggage.

Probably not the best place to be without a skid plate. Even a little tip-over here could get very expensive.

That is why I left mine on the hill and walked down to have a look first.

Laugh lets admit it to ourselves....

v stroms and wee stroms are really only slightly more usefull off road than a tl1000r......and that really isnt very usefull....

however like the tl1000r attitude pays dividends....you will crash less often and go much faster....the only problem being is when you crash it will hurt more because you have been going fast,,,,,

however it is one heck of a bike for reasonable dirt roads and motorcross track like tar and commuting and general touring and pi**ing off your mate on a BMW...because it cost half as much and is a better bike and you have lots of cash to spend on lots of bits...

and heck with a staintune pipe on a wee strom it sounds like a world super bike wining ducati at 10k rpm and that isnt at all bad....

Well, crosscountry, I don't have a PhD and haven't as much riding experience as you. However, I have to disagree that a V-Strom is only slightly lmore useful off road than a tl1000r. Just how I perceive it.

Not trying to cause a fuss.

Was just teasing anyway. I've ridden a TL1000 but not a DL1000. if the DL has anywhere near the torque of the TL, then they're both dangerous offroad.
