XR650R - Pannier Options?

How are people carrying their gear on the XR650R's?

Thanks,

Hodakaguy

You can use aluminum panniers , you just can't put anything in them.

It does have a weak subframe and most use soft bags. I have Dirtbagz and find them Very tough. If you need waterproof just put your stuff in ziplocks or drybags.

Of course, truth be known my bike spends more time in the garage getting farkled than ridden. ;-)

XRR Pannier Options

While not hard cases, I am loving the Wolfman E12s. Very secure, easy to mount, high and tight! Overall a great setup I am very happy with.





Small Manracks on the back, does not get in the way.



Steel subframe for peace of mind.



Drybag with RocStraps. My weak point was the two lighter weight gray bungies. On a few hard hits my load would shift a bit,
and some RocStraps in an "X" formation would have been better.



Overall, with Wolfmans, Manrack, dry bag, fender bag, and GL Buck and Roll, I could carry all the gear I needed to be self-sufficient.
On a 2,000 mile trip up and down NM, I never lost a single bit of gear.

Thanks guys, I started this thread back in 08, ended up going with the Giant Loop Luggage and never looked back. The GL gear works great!
