After years of shopping, looking, comparing I've decided the only way I'm going to find the panniers I want is to make them.. Any input / help. Equipment/skill. Would be appreciated :)

Anyone interested in going to Slades next Wednesday? I need to practice some high speed sand action.

Weather looks decent.

Do you own a KLR650? If so, have you searched any of the KLR650 forums? Plenty of ideas and examples by people who have built panniers for their motorcycles.

Are you looking for hard or soft panniers? I use Ortlieb Moto Saddle-Bags on my KLR. They are soft bags, and they work well on the KLR without a mounting rack.

Yes I own a KLR650,, and I'd bet I've looked at every picture and forum of every bike there is :) I current have cheap soft bags, that I only use when I go up to New Jersey (a few times a year) and that's mainly due to me being undecided on what I want.. But I'm down to this

If I go soft bags definitely putting on mounting racks

If I go hard panniers:


Both I think will look pretty good on my bike



What do you think?

I think you got a good looking bike there Friendo!

I ride a DR650 and I have the Wolfman racks that I run pelican 1430's on 90% of the time. I have the Wolfman waterproof saddlebags for when i go camping. This setup works great for me.

I plan on getting something different, as I've never liked the looks of those big stainless panniers on a bike the size of mine.
