I have Jesse's on mine and I'm happy with them. IMO they are sized well, pretty much as big as you can go w/o them looking cartoonish. Watertight. The two-lock/two-latch system is a bit fiddly compared to a givi case. As with any hard pannier, they are leg breakers, especially if dabbing in sand.

Someone asked about clearance with the grab handles. The Girlfriend uses the handles and hasn't mentioned any issues. It's tight (which you'd want to keep the cases tucked in to the bike) but I can still easily get ahold of them to pull the bike up on the centerstand, roll it around, etc.

Good, sturdy, well made cases.

I ended up canceling my order for the Touratech bags when I was told there is no estimated availability time. It looks like I may only have one week free for the rest of the year and it is coming up before the bags could possibly be ready. Since that is the case, I thought I might as well wait. I have had Jesse bags before and liked them, so I might end up going that route. For now, I am thinking of getting another set of Wolfman Dry Expedition saddlebags (sold last set) and mounting them. Wolfman told me they are almost done with their own fitment system for it. They will not replace the eventual hard bags, but if I buy them now I can use them on another bike that will soon join the Tiger in the garage.

I think I'm going to go with the SW Motech racks and Wolfman adapter plates from windingroads.co.uk -- looks like a best-of-both-worlds setup. I like the fact that the Wolfman bags' throwover strap is eliminated.

Happy Trails SU rack for tigers will accomodate any hard pannier that has a flat mounting surface & can be used for drybags as well. Good as auxillary frame sliders when bags are on / off too.

Thumb Jesse Luggage For My Tiger

About three weeks ago I ordered the Jesses and received them 10 days later. They were in stock and Rick shipped them out the next day.

They were to only ones that I have seen for the 800 that I would even consider owning.

Very pleased with them and the fast shipping from Rick.

Damn that rack looks even worse in a spill Maybe it would b e OK since it's tucked in a little more but that just doesn't look safe to me....as ever, YMMV

Caribou

I picked up the pelican cases from Caribou and love them. Just the right size for me, although the could be a little tighter to the frame as I ended up clipping a mirror while splitting lanes the other morning (heh...barely scuffed the bags too).

Having the SW Motech quick release racks and Alu rack on my ZZR, I decided right away to get the Alu rack for the Tiger also; makes it an easy thing to move the top case between bikes. I'm leaning towards the quick release side racks also, even though my ZZR bags are paint matched and really not adventure cases, the racks allow for lots of options as far as bags go.

The SW Motech racks can be ordered with Givi mounts. That's how I'm leaning.

Could you add a straight-on from the rear photo of the cases mounted?

Please?

My Touratech Zega Pro panniers showed up today and I've had my tailbox for a couple weeks. I started to install the panniers tonight but a storm blew through and halted my progress for the night. I will install them tomorrow evening and post some photos.

The jury is still out rearding what panniers to fit, but Caribou are looking the most likely as they are pretty much indestructable.
Can any of you FF's tell me if the SWMotech racks will have a set of Pelicans symmetrical on the XC? I see on TT's site that they show Two different capacities boxes to allow for the Exhaust side (smaller)?

Any body have a tail pic with the Pelicans/Caribou with SWMotech?

Hepco& Becker Xplorers

I've had Hepco & Becker Xplorers on my Tiger for 2 months, 2,100 miles and 2 get offs. Well built, easy to install and they provide plenty of room for my gear on multi-day trips. They're sharp looking, too. I like the look of the anodized black Zega Pro's but they're $700 more than the Xplorers.
