adventure pannier mounting

2015 xcx I went with the triumph adventure panniers. Mounting instructions call for some small holes and a couple of big holes to be cut and drilled. I have no desire to punch holes in the body work to install these.

Is their a hard pannier manufacturer that doesn't require drilling of the body work for bracket mounting?

No drilling required for the Givi Trekker pannier kit. I did have to drill out the holes in the rear rack for the Givi Trunk mount.

SW Motech Quick Lock racks fit perfectly without any drilling can be removed in seconds if you want and gave pucks available to mount most major brands panniers.

Thanks for the info. That's the other 2 systems I was looking at, good info. I can live with drilling the racks,but not the bike. I was interested in the other style of triumph aluminium panniers,but the dealership didn't know anything about them or availability. What I have is still in the box so hopefully the dealer will give me a refund.

Also, the Givi PLR6401 racks I'm using don't require any modifications and are quickly removable like the SW Motech ones. I'm also using an Altrider rear rack which comes pre-drilled for the Givi Monokey mount -- just like the side racks.

Thought I was being a little hasty buying the adventure boxes. The expedition were actually the ones I wanted but apparently not yet available in the states. I would settle for the triumph expedition cases they look good and the brackets look sturdy. If I get a refund from the dealer instead of credit toward the expeditions I will look at you folk's suggestions.
Thanks again!

Can the SW Motech Quick Lock racks be used with the Givi Trekker Outback side cases?

They sell the racks and most cases. Give them a call and ask. Great customer service.

I think the Trekkers aren't compatible with the removable PLRs, IIRC Trekkers mount on the cam mount PL6401s.

Hey Bob,
been trying to get in touch with you to see if you are still looking at doing the AZBDR the week of May 10. I'm looking to do it the same week and would like to join you.

No drilling required, just put them on 2015 xcx. Looked like some 2014 and earlier required it, based on VIN...

I'm going to give the triumph expedition cases a try. If they ever make it to the states.

Same exact panniers, except for Triumph badge, and 75.00
And with Givi mounts you can move the cans to your next/other bike.

sweet.
I kinda thought they were trekkers made for T.
My dealers computer doesn't show the picture of them but he's checking with the rep. to get an availability timeline.
The magadan's should work fine with those brackets then.
