No problem. Wolfman has their own puck system now as well.

Saw that. The GlobeScout looks like nicer hardware at 1/2 the price, though.

Happy Trails has their pucks too, $50 for a set. And they come different sizes as well.

I think their tangs are short though and work best on their square tubes.

Wolfman racks ar 3/4" which is about 19mm. Wolfman also has their own universal pannier mounting system:

On the trail. Mine is in the center.

Looks awesome! How did your friend like his triumph panniers on the off-roading part of the trip?! Had he complained at all about any rattling or anything from the luggage? Been debating for a while on what luggage to get...

No complaints. He didn't dump it though, good thing I guess.

The problem with the oem ones is the plastic mounting hook - it's somewhat fragile. Also for some reason triumph thinks the side and top boxes need to move around so they're on some kind of suspension system. Not sure I get that.

Yeah that's exactly what I've heard about them. Many people didn't like that suspension at all which is why I'm hesitant with the OEM Panniers. Any idea on if its possible to alter the panniers so they aren't suspended? I just really like the idea of having one key for everything...

Cheers

You can get pannier pucks from just about anyone (Touratech, Happy Trails, Twisted Throttle, AdvDepot, etc) and use the pucks with any hard mount rack system (again from those outfits).

The other option I saw was to get the Pelican box option and use your key cores with some off the shelf / custom cylinders. I suspect a good locksmith could hook you up.

Hey Bob - can you confirm the total system width? The site says 39" for the 9" cliffs.

Thanks.

OK, I measured them and they are 39".

Mine are actually just a tad more because of the Wolfman bag velcro wrap straps wrapped around the frame. I'm glad that the hard cases fit on with the Wolfman straps in place so that I don't have to remove them when I swap bag/panniers.

Appreciate it!

handlebar width

Hey guys,

I am overseas and away from my bike. About to drop some loot on a set of panniers but can't measure my bike. Can anyone tell me the complete length of the handle bars, far left to right?

Thanks Bo
