Tank Panniers for a 93 R100GSPD

Howdy, Im soliciting recommendations for tank panniers for my 93 PD. Im leaning toward the Aerostich offering but not sure how theyd fit on this bike. Has anyone used these on a PD? Any pics? Any others I should consider?

Aerostich Tank Panniers

Thanks,

Ted - Denver

Check Tractor Supply Company. IIRC, they have some for about $20.

Thanks dfc, those look like they work well on there. Im leaning toward the larger, 8.8 liter ones. I noticed an error on the Aerostich web page. They say the dimensions of the Competition panniers are 7.5"x12"2.5" and 6.6 liters. Those dimensions would work out to 3.7 liters. I dont know if I want to go that small. Anyone have a pic of a PD with the full size Aerostich tank panniers?

Thanks again,

Ted

Aerostitch expensive but I love them!!

I bought the large Aerostitch Panniers and I love them. I have been on two longer trips with them and the only compaint would be that they slide back towards my knees after about 300 miles but it is easy to just push them forward again.

DFC, pony up with some intel on how you ran the bungees from the 'Stich tank panniers-- ie where you linked the hooks, where you routed the over-tank straps etc.

I got the 'competition' sized bags for a 91 roo-bar GS (6 gal tank, not PD) and am not satisfied with my initial strap set-up for longevity

The bags are super quality, very pleased with them, i just have not hit on an acceptable set-up with the roo-bar fairing

Here they are on my '92 GS/PD. Don't know which model they are, got them in trade for a welding "favour". I think I'm gonna like them as they'll not only increase junk carrying capacity, but add to the wind protection afforded my legs and knees. Always welcome on cooler rides.

Bungees attached, thusly.
Always wanted to use the word 'thusly'.

si there some sort of harness underneath joining the 2 bags which keep them from spreading apart? or that has never been a problem?

Bungys

I run the stock bungys, front Bungy to the roo bar between the rubber pieces. Back Bungy to the clip that holds on the air cleaner.
sorry so late on this, not watching this thread.

you can see the front in my pic

Okay, it finally warmed up enough to take a ride and try these things out.

First off: As I'd hoped, they're great for increasing wind and weather protection for your legs. With these slung over the PD tank it's like riding behind a set of full fairing lowers. I like it.

Secondly: I modded the mounting slightly as pictured (compare to above). Seems a minor mod but it helps to keep the bag held closely to the tank and pulled as far forward as possible - which allows maximum knee room.
