I did a rally earlier this year and left my bags and racks at the camp site before we hit the trails. It's the cleanest solution out there. The 1/4 turn fasteners on the HB racks are awesome. I pull the bags then release the 3 Duz type fasteners on each side and both racks drop being held together with the cross brace.

Yes the HB setup with the 45/35L bags does look wide but I can still squeeze around the fence to get into my "motorcycle only" parking spot with them on.

I totally agree dude. Glad I pmed you about your experiences with the system and followed your lead. I'm completely happy with the setup and it's so easy to go on and off as you described.

I haven't put a ton of miles on the setup yet, but I'm happy with the fitment. I was a little leary of the quick disconnects being a source of poor fitment, but they really do lock down well. I had the Givi racks on my Wee, and it was a little more sturdy than on the tiger. This has a bit more flex if you grab it and shake, but overall i think it's going to do just fine.

Here's an ass shot from a recent 1800+ mile trip. The Globescouts 45/35 setup worked perfectly on HB racks. I've got the Pelican 1500 as the top case. So far, I've been impressed with the quality and capability of this set-up. If I had to decide again, I would probably go with the same.

I like the symmetry and the capacity was just right for my 7-day trip with full camping gear (the big Ortlieb bag helped).

Why GB over sw-Motech? I'm really curious because I frankly don't see much of a difference.... even in pricing! I'm on the market for luggage so just wondering why those!

Thanks!

Just personal preference probably. I like the way the GSs look over the SWs but SWs are still very nice.

Triumph panniers for 800XC

I'm considering an 800XC and wondering if the Triumph bags are any good. It would make my life easy to get them dealer installed.

My first Tiger I had them and they work great for "Street" use, I wouldn't dare take them out on the dirt. The mouting system is not designed for any kind of lay down.

I have a set for the dirt (Pelicans) and a set of aluminum cans for the street trips.

Why spend money when any old thin will do
Funny how I bring way more crap for a two night outing than I do for a week long trip

That looks like a fire hazzard

Just my luck a strap or bungee cord will give and I'd be on the side of the road picking up my rolled goods

One dead bungee net and a lost cam buckle, both on the right side. I wonder why

How do you find the Pelicans in use? I am attracted to their durability, but the side opening doesn't seem practical. Is it a pain in the ass?

They do drop out everything but I've seen others fashion up a catch line which would solve that. Definitely going to do that mod ASAP

Other than that they work great for motorcycling
