There are some beautiful oldies on here and so many styles of panniers (bags). After reading an article in the RealClassic magazine (Issue 104) I just had to read up about American Enduro teardrop panniers which to my eyes look terrific.

I don't have a photo (wish I did), but when I saw the title of this thread it immediately made me think of my first motorcycle trip, on a 70's Honda 750. My "luggage" was an old army surplus duffel bag, with everything in it, strapped on the back of the seat with bungee cords.

Samsonite Tribar luggage. I found a full set for sale here a decade ago but did not need them (had working Krausers on my bike at that time) and no place to keep them anyway.

Improvised saddle bags in '78, young & broke & travelling through Queensland doing Seismic Survey work, bags are WWII vintage back packs from memory
Make sure the exhaust has a shield over it!, left hand bag caught fire within 100kms of leaving on the trip, service station attendant wasn't amused to see a smoking bike pull into fill up with fuel!!!!!!

Yep, kinda like that - but your luggage looks like it was much better developed!

I had those cheapo nylon bags on a 1980(?) 850 Triple Yamaha. (We were on a 300 mile ride to go boating) One of the bags contacted the muffler, burned through and melted into a bottle of my Wifes' "baby oil" in the bag. Started smoldering big time....and what a mess.
