Thank you for the link, however it seems that they are talking about taking out the baffle on a Leo Vince exhaust and and talking about the stock exhaust.

that is going to be a problem. The exhaust takes up a lot of room. and any bag on that side wide enough to hold a helmet is going to stick WAAAY out.

Much safer option. Use plastic bag if it rains.

I really don't like leaving my helmet out in the open. If I am concerned enough about its safety to lock it up. It needs to be in a case. Which is one of the reasons why I ponied up for the Triumph hard luggage.

Had the dual Givi on my KLR, which worked well, of course only ever needed to store a single helmet. The left case was large enough for the helmet, and the right my jacket. I did the asymmetrical thing on the KLR. With the SW-motec rack, it worked out almost perfectly, the out edges of the Givi bags where almosts an identacle from the centre of the bike.

So you just have the bags on your bike to store your helmet and jacket? I've always got stuff in my bags.

Thanks

It all depends on what I am doing, if I am heading to the gym, my gym bag comes out, and the helmet goes in.

At the mall, don't usually have stuff in the bag until I get out of the mall

When I tour, yeah the bags are full. If I leave the bike, and the area is safe I leave the helmet on the inner part of the handle bars, over the GPS. Otherwise I take my helmet with me.

On my trip this summer, I might actually make a 3-4' long 1/4" coated air-craft cable for my helmet and jacket when I head off to take pictures and such.

hmmmmm

Usually piercing exhaust resulting in horrible sound in high rpms.
Popping on deccel = fuelling + exhaust volume. Piercing most likely will result on random and messy sound.

Usually on any bike or on the Tiger? Have seen other bikes with a pierced exhaust and imho in sounds nice. I can't find anyone who has done it to the T800, so it's hard to tell what the end result might be. I guess I'll do it and we will all find out.

Popping on decel is unburnt gas burning in your exhaust. I would normally attribute that to a PAIR system but I think it's only required on liter bikes and above. I don't see any kind of secondary air system on the Tiger.

If you're going to buy a Leo Vince exhaust better act fast, a little birdie told me the prices are going up *soon*, like possibly this week or next. There is a great deal in the vendors area going on now, jump on it.

I'd have to agree with bluesman, I've never heard a drilled exhaust that sounded good. But if you like it, it's your bike, go for it and enjoy.

Sorry, willtry to answer both questions from different authors in 1 post. I hate using phone for it.
As I stated plastc bag does perfect job agains rain. Or light waterproof bag. Or even packsafe bag.
As for top box. Let's see. Triumph top box is ubelievably heavy together wuth it's sliding base. And right on top of bike. Worst thing for handling and for offroad. But,
in fairness it's quite secure. Still,I would not trade handling for safety of top box and btw it only takes tyre iron to break in. Aftermarket platic top boxes can be broken into by one good hit with foot. Which is very well proved in Paris for example. But original question was for panners. I do not want to dissapoint , but even Triumph panners take one kick to break in or just take pannier off alltogether. Cable lock through opening and not D strap takes special tool to cut. Granted, wont stop pro. But it's still safer. Real valuables left on bike in dodgy places cant be really secure at all, but most secure is to lock them together by metal. This is my opinion based on my experience of course.

That's exactly how I had a helmet and most of my riding kit nicked years ago. Someone watches you load it all in there and when you're gone....it's gone!
If you run a cable lock through the grab handles and sit the helmet on the seat it keeps the rain out. I also use one of those Pacsafe netting things to lock up my riding kit. A bin liner keeps the rain out.
